I've heard a lot about FEST. How can I get involved?

FEST is a spring outdoor concert and festival, and is planned and conducted by the DePaul Activities Board (DAB). DAB is the largest programming body on campus and works to provide a variety of events for the DePaul community.

Students can apply to be a program assistant on one or more of DAB's seven committees, or they can apply to be a coordinator of one of the committees. Learn more about FEST.

Does DePaul have a homecoming?

No. Instead of a homecoming, DePaul celebrates Blue Demon Week during the winter quarter. The DePaul Activities Board (DAB), the Student Government association, and various university departments (including Alumni Relations, the Ray Meyer Fitness and Recreation Center, Student Affairs and Athletics) plan Blue Demon Week. The week typically features a number of spirit and affinity building events on campus, and culminates with men's and women's senior day basketball games and a Blue Demon Dance.
