Membership in the Alumni Association is open to any former Penn student who worked for The Daily Pennsylvanian or any of its publications (or The Pennsylvania News) in any capacity. Becoming a member of the DPAA is free, and allows you to receive periodic email newsletters and our mailed Annual Report to keep you up-to-date with your favorite college newspaper.
While there is no fee for being a member of the DPAA — you just need to register — we ask all DP alumni to support the organization by making an annual contribution. A small part of member contributions goes to funding the operations of the DPAA (running this website and our member management system, our Annual Report mailing, and the various events for students and alumni), while the majority of contributions go to support identified needs for the DP, including providing scholarships to DP students we place in summer journalism internships, providing students modern technology tools, funding travel to cover events outside Philadelphia, and more.
You can make a membership contribution via our secure site quickly and easily (there are no more logins required!) by clicking here.
If you have questions about your membership, please write us at dpaa@theDP.com.
