Blue Demon Day Shirt Swap Is a Success

1 Feb

We thought our alumni would like to see what we’ve been doing on campus to prepare for DePaul’s inaugural Blue Demon Day! In honor of the event, coming up Feb. 2, 2013, the Office of Alumni Relations encouraged students, staff and faculty to trade in shirts from rivals schools. Each shirt swapper received a new Blue Demon Day shirt in exchange!

Check out a slideshow of some of the best donations we received, and learn more about DePaul’s spirited event on the Blue Demon Day website.

So You Think You Know DePaul – January 2013

Blue Demon Day is  just weeks away on Saturday, Feb. 2, so this month we’re quizzing you on your knowledge of our school mascot instead of asking you to guess a certain mystery place! Soon after St. Vincent’s College became DePaul University, athletes wore uniforms with large ‘D’s printed on the front. During a game, an announcer referred to the players as the “D-men,” a name that stuck and transformed into Blue Demons. In what decade did DePaul first get the nickname that led to our current team name?

Happy guessing! And remember these trivia rules:

  • To enter, post your answer in the comments section by clicking “Leave a Comment” below.
  • The contest will be open Friday, Jan. 18, 2013, from 12:30 p.m. Central through 4 p.m. Central.
  • All of the correct answers will be compiled and a winner from that group will be drawn at random to win an alumni-themed prize. This month’s prize will include a special memento from the inaugural Blue Demon Day!

Show Your DePaul Pride on Blue Demon Day

BDD-Facebook_icon-AA new year brings new DePaul activities. For 2013, mark your calendar for the
inaugural Blue Demon Day on Feb. 2! The day is a chance for all Blue Demons—alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends—to show their school spirit and cheer their team on to victory.

Blue Demon Day is centered on the men’s basketball game against Notre Dame at 1 p.m. CST in the Allstate Arena and on ESPN2. Here’s how you can show your pride on the big day:

  • Celebrate by joining Chicagoland alumni at the arena for the game.
  • Attend one of the game-watches being held across the nation. (See the full list here. All are free, but be sure to register in advance.)
  • Wherever you watch, be sure to wear your DePaul gear!

Visit alumni.depaul.edu/bluedemonday to learn more. We look forward to a large alumni turnout on Feb. 2 to cheer on our Blue Demons!
