DSU will enlist its past graduates to introduce youth to the University with its first-ever Alumni Ambassador Outreach Day that will be held in conjunction with its Spring Open House from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 12.
Alumni are encouraged to reach out to middle and high school students and bring them to the DSU campus for the event. The prospective students will attend an academic fair in the Memorial Hall Gymnasium, tour the campus and have an opportunity to visit individual academic colleges to meet with faculty and administrators.
While the prospective students take part in the Spring Open House events, alumni will meet with DSU President Harry L. Williams in a forum setting.
Lisa Dunning, the recently appointed assistant vice president of Alumni Affairs, recently met with a group of DSU Alumni Association officers and chapter presidents to explain the new initiative and ask for their support.
"It is important for alumni to be engaged and do things today that will impact the lives of students that come behind us,” Dr. Dunning said. “Alumni can increase students’ awareness and stimulate their thinking in terms of college readiness."
Alumni are asked to register online (www.desu.edu/alumnioutreach ) the guests they will be bring to the campus that day.
