Alumni

Our incredible alumni network—more than 20,000 strong—is an invaluable resource. We invite you to take advantage of the many ways to stay connected.

De La Salle Alumni know where home is. Though we come from various backgrounds, have traveled down unique career paths, and represent nearly every neighborhood of this city, what unites us all is the same institution that has successfully prepared us for the future: De La Salle Institute.

Alumni Association

The De La Salle Alumni Association (DLSAA) boasts over 20,000 members. Throughout De La Salle’s 133-year history, the Alumni Association has remained a core presence of our school’s continued success. It has been the mission of this Association to provide service to members and De La Salle Institute through the development, initiation, and sponsorship, as well as support of activities, programs, and services. We are proud and excited to continue such a strong tradition in many ways such as

  • Seeing you at annual events such as the Annual Alumni Banquet and the D-Final Event
  • Celebrating the support of your school through time, treasure, and your talents
  • Getting together and staying connected
  • And more!

Wall of Heroes

In honor and memory of De La Salle alumni who have served, or are currently serving, in our military, we created a Wall of Heroes in the Toth Foyer. It was unveiled on Veteran’s Day, November 11th, 2009.

Photos & Memorabilia: We seek photos of alumni in uniform and also donations of any military memorabilia items to enhance the Wall of Heroes display. Please contact Mr. John Brogan, Dean of Social Sciences, at broganj@dls.org if you have any materials to contribute.

Help us keep the Wall of Heroes up to date by completing a brief questionnaire with service member information if you are (or know of) alumni who has served or is currently serving in the military.
