Dear DP Alumni Community,
Nice to meet you!
My name is Allie Fehr, and I am a second-year transfer student at Penn and the new DP Development Assistant. I am extremely excited to be working with the DP Development team to create and enhance efforts to generate DP alumni philanthropic support.
When I decided to spend the next three years of my undergraduate education at Penn, I knew I wanted to witness and join the DP’s legacy as one of the nation’s top college news organizations. Having loved my own experience writing for my high school’s small but mighty newspaper, I am passionate about supporting student journalism.
As your host of the DPAA beat, I will continue to share the stories and achievements of DP alumni. While celebrating the past, I will also document the story of the DP today by pulling back the curtain on production nights and spotlighting current staff. My goal is to emphasize how your philanthropic support directly contributes to the production of impactful journalism and meaningful experiences for Penn students.
You give so much time, money and mentorship to the DP, so we hope to give back to you by making our network an interactive one. Be sure to follow the DPAA Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so you do not miss out on the latest DP news, events, archival dives, merch giveaways and more.
I hope to see and talk to many of you this year!
