We have recently had some questions from recent graduates about available benefits and services for students after graduation.
After searching the DePaul website, I’ve come up with some good information to help you in transitioning from student to graduate:
- First and foremost, acquire your alumni ID card. You can get it at ID Services (https://www.is.depaul.edu/systems/cards_passes/id_services.asp). To learn about the process of getting an alumni ID card, visit http://alumni.depaul.edu/benefits/AlumniCards.aspx.
- Your ID card allows you access to a number of services offered on campus. At the library, you can utilize the databases, check out and renew different materials on your account, and use the computer labs and printers. See the Library website (http://library.depaul.edu/infofor/Alumni.aspx) for complete information.
- A program you may want to take advantage of is the Alumni Career Services office. Here, you can find help for resume writing, networking, or finding a job in the postings. Their website is http://alumni.depaul.edu/benefits/career/index.aspx. This office is closely linked with the University Career Center, which you can find at http://careercenter.depaul.edu/.
All of this information and more can be found on the Alumni Services page (http://alumni.depaul.edu/benefits/ServicesDiscounts.aspx). There is information there regarding the Alumni Directory, your access to transcripts, the Ray Meyer Fitness Center, and much more.
And, to be clear, all of this information can be useful to current students as well, as they look forward to the near future of graduation. If there are any questions these links don’t answer, please contact us here in the MALS/IDS office (773-325-7840) and we can try to help find the answers.
