UD Role: I enjoy being president of the Student Alumni Association because not only do we get to work with fellow students on campus, but we also have unique experiences with alumni that most other students may not have.

One thing students and alumni will always have in common is our love for UD basketball. That is why the Student Alumni Association hosted a gamewatch event called Wings with Alums. The event was hosted on campus for both students and alumni to cheer during an away men’s basketball game.

We gathered in Torch Lounge in Kennedy Union and projected the game on a large screen. There was great food, and during halftime we all had fun with some UD trivia for a variety of prizes. It was an exciting and lively event that brought everyone together as one UD community.

It was fun to see alumni get into the game, and their presence allowed us to mingle with new people and share each other’s past and present UD stories. Every experience I have with UD alumni is unique and enjoyable, and this gamewatch was no different. It was cool to see alumni back on campus and see that the love for UD basketball has not changed since graduation.

Meeting alumni definitely makes me want to be connected with UD once I graduate. I know how impactful alumni are to me as a student, and I hope to someday be that for someone else. I love being a student at UD and wish time would slow way down, but events like these make me excited to become an alum. I have seen firsthand the love for this university does not stop after graduation.

 

The Student Alumni Association enhances connections between students and alumni. SAA helps create a culture of philanthropy on campus and instills a lifelong commitment to UD. You can learn more about SAA here.
