From 5-7 April we are hosting our first ever Homecoming event and we’re inviting all of our alumni to join us on campus for an action packed weekend of activities. This promises to be a nostalgic, fun and celebratory weekend for our alumni to reconnect with DMU as well as former friends and teachers.

On Friday 5 April, there will be a chance to catch up with old friends at our official meet and greet, held at Leicester Castle Business School. The official opening ceremony of Homecoming will take place on the morning of Saturday 6 April at our fantastic on-campus venue which will be followed by a variety of activities.

These include:

  • Campus tours

Last year, we launched our new alumni proposition, #DMUforlife, to signal a step change in our offer to, and engagement with, all of our graduates. All alumni can get ongoing access to our careers service via DMUworks, library resources, discounts on further study, networking events, international clubs and opportunities to go on #DMUglobal trips. Homecoming is a key part of our new offering to encourage all of our alumni to stay connected to DMU.

Journey to Homecoming

To help build excitement and preview this inaugural event we'll be following three of our alumni over the next two months as they gear up for Homecoming. They'll be sharing their personal stories and memories of DMU, what they've been up to since graduating and what they're most looking forward to by returning to campus.
