Dear Alumni,

As you may know, every autumn Chancellor Robert Coombe invites the first year students to one of a series of dinners, held to welcome them to the University and introduce them to its colorful history and traditions. We would love to personally invite each of you to join us at one of these dinners as we welcome this year’s first year students to the DU family!

It is our tradition to invite a special group of DU alumni to attend a dinner to greet our students, share stories and help them understand what it means to be a Pioneer. The dinners are held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the Ritchie Center’s Gottesfeld Room. This year, due to the large number of incoming students, there will be 21 separate events. We hope to have 10 alumni represent the DU community each evening.

If you are interested in attending, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 303-871-2701 or This is a wonderful opportunity for alumni to attend one of the University’s hallmark events and for DU’s past students to connect with DU’s future alumni.
