ONLINE ALUMNI DIRECTORY
Association members may use the online alumni directory to find and connect with friends and classmates, or network with other Achievers in their area or career field. This robust search tool allows members to search by name, maiden name, location, class year, major, student organizations and residences, and current business information — or by other custom search criteria. In the online community, members may also edit their profiles, update their information, read and post class notes, and view coupon codes for member benefits. The directory is also mobile-friendly.
The Alumni Association will provide support for various annual and special reunions, including class reunions, that are held throughout the year.
WALL OF ALUMNI AND FRIENDS
The Wall, (to be located inside the school), will provide a way for all alumni, students, and friends of Detroit School of Arts to participate and be permanently acknowledged, honored, or remembered at Detroit School of Arts. Each plaque may include the individual’s name, DSA major, and an optional personal message. An annual ceremony will be held to honor individuals who have passed away during the previous year, at which time a metal African voliet symbol will be added to those plaques.
