Alumni Wanted for Marquez Conference

We are seeking DP alums across all fields and backgrounds (journalism and otherwise) to participate in the annual Marquez Conference on campus on Saturday, September 24th. The Marquez Conference is an opportunity for the new board and DP staff to learn both important journalistic practices and gain a deeper understanding of how they can leverage their DP experience in their future careers of choice.

We are planning a wide array of sessions that we aim to be relevant to students across the organization. To that end, we are especially looking for alums with any of the following expertise, though we welcome all who are interested to reach out:

-Social media-Management
-Internship/entry-level job hiring
-And of course, reporting across all topics and media

Interested in participating? Click Here

Please do reach out even if you still consider yourself relatively new to your field, as it’s always helpful for students to see a range of perspectives!We hope you’ll consider lending your expertise — I can say from experience it’s one of the most rewarding ways I’ve found to give back to the DP.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or suggestions!

DP 131, 132 Marquez Alumni Coordinator


An important message from the Commissioner…


Masthead Madness is Back and BIGGER!


Dear DPAA,

Yamin from the DP Development team here. I am one of this year’s Masthead Madness student project managers. Being at the DP has truly been one of the best experiences I have ever had and I am sure it was the same for you.

We are reaching out to recruit all past DP Board Members and Leaders to become Captain’s for this year’s alumni fundraising competition; which will run from March 14th – April 4th. 

Extra incentive this year!

The DP is competing against college newsrooms and media organization’s from across the country in College Media Madness. We are confident in our collective ability to finish #1 in the nation! 

How to become a Masthead Madness Captain today!

Go to: Sign up, submit memories and pictures, make some shoutouts, send a few emails, and make a gift for your team between March 14th and April 4th.   

We look forward to crowning a new champ, seeing all the old memories shared, reading some classic DP tales and ensuring the DP finishes atop the College Media Madness standings.

We hope you will sign up today and use our Captain’s Kit to encourage others to support our efforts in raising money for students like me at The Daily Pennsylvanian. 

Thank you for your consideration and support of this year’s Masthead Madness.  

Let’s go!

NEW Alumni speaker series for Business Side begins this week

A top priority of the DP’s Business Department for this coming year is to foster a deeper connection with our business side and business centric alumni. In order to do this, we have created a new DPAA speaker series called Biz Matters where alumni will share their story, experiences and expertise directly with our students. 

Biz Matters will take place mostly on Fridays from 12:30pm – 1:30pm, in person and/or over Zoom. Guest speakers will be guided in a 30 – 40 minute interview for an audience of students; DPAA alumni are welcome too! We will take questions from the audience towards the conclusion of the program.

We are always in need of great speakers from a variety of backgrounds for future dates. If you are interested, please email Business Manager, Greg Ferrey at

We appreciate all the DPAA and our alumni do for our students and look forward to learning from you this semester!
