From a formal reception at the Hyatt Regency on the Chicago River to the Blue Demon Bash block party under the Fullerton ‘L’ stop, DePaul alumni enjoyed a full range of events during Alumni & Family Weekend, Oct. 13–16.
A highlight of the jam-packed weekend was the Friday night alumni reception, held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Alumni of all class years joined DePaul President Robert L. Manuel for an elegant evening featuring hors d’oeuvres, drinks and plenty of good conversation.
Current students, families and alumni had a blast at the third annual Blue Demon Bash on Saturday afternoon. The tailgate under the ‘L’ tracks next to Wish Field featured snacks, games and music and was the perfect segue to the soccer game, where the DePaul men’s team fought Xavier University to a 1–1 draw in front of a capacity crowd.
The weekend also featured brunches, trolley rides to the Lincoln Park Zoo, Sunday mass, a virtual trivia game and the All for DePaul Virtual Fun Run benefiting The Finish Line Fund.
