This is a page to help combine a few ideas about keeping Alumni involved in clubs and socs activity.

Brainstorming

Just getting started with this, throw down any ideas you have:

  • A "clubs and socs day" for alumni, encouraging them to come back and re-join and talk to DCU societies
  • Working with the DCU Alumni Relations officer on projects
  • A LinkedIn/OpenBC style website specific to DCU, to categorise alumni & their DCU contacts
  • An official list of DCU societies/clubs with active Alumni membership (Redbrick a good example)
  • Discounted postgraduate courses / further education for Alumni, to encourage more study at DCU?
  • "Alumni talks" series, possible monthly talk from an Alumni on a topic, could be archived
  • Alumni have a lot of experience, useful for training etc.

Good Idea

Why is some sort of alumni involvement in a club or society a *good idea*?

  • Alumni are coming back to DCU to help out with Clubs & Socs independently, and for free
  • It's a good way for alumni to keep in touch with eachother, DCU doesn't really facilitate that

Bad Idea

Why is some sort of alumni involvement in a club or society a *bad idea*?

  • Most of the power needs to be with the ordinary members, it'd be bad if the oldies were throwing their weight around years after they've left
  • Who's going to pay for all this lark? Current DCU students?
  • Won't DCU just try to use this to fleece people for donations?
