Chicagoland

Over
118,000
DePaul alumni call Chicagoland home.

It's easy to stay in touch with the DePaul community through the Chicagoland Alumni Chapter. All alumni living in the city and surrounding suburbs are part of the Chicagoland Chapter.

Cheer with fellow alumni at a sporting event, see DePaul's music and theatre talents live on stage, enjoy tours of different areas around Chicago and attend other exciting events with fellow alumni. Check out our upcoming events to see what we'll be doing next.

Chicago area DePaul graduates under age 30 also can connect with one another by participating in the Young Alumni Committee.
