If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’re already aware that today marks the first day of Blue Demon Week. However, if this is the first you’re hearing of it, well then, HEY! IT’S BLUE DEMON WEEK! Here in the Office of Alumni Relations, one of our favorite sayings is “Once a Blue Demon, always a Blue Demon,” so even as a graduate, you can still (and should!) celebrate being a Blue Demon!
Here are four ways you can celebrate as alumni:
Post a photo on social media sporting your favorite Blue Demon gear.
Whether you drink your morning cup of coffee out of your go-to DePaul mug or wear your favorite Blue Demon T-shirt under your work clothes, be sure to post it on social media and don’t forget to tag us @depaulalumni. Brownie points if you add #BlueDemonWeek to it!
Follow along on our social media accounts to see what’s happening on campus and share our content with your followers.
Remember how we said to post your DePaul pride photos on social media? Well, we’ll be sharing your photos and other Blue Demon Week highlights on our accounts, so even though you’re not able to be on campus, you can still be part of the celebration wherever you are in the world!
