Welcome to the UCD Alumni Community

Once you graduate from UCD, you become a member of the UCD Alumni Community for life.

As a new graduate, we are delighted to welcome you to the UCD Alumni Community. The word ‘alumni’ means a group of people who studied at the same university. It is plural for the latin words ‘alumnus’ and ‘alumna’ which refer to a former pupil or student, male or female respectively, of a particular school, college, or university.'

Stay in touch with all of your great friends from UCD as you develop your career and be sure to take care of your physical and mental health as you embark on a professional life, it can be a big challenge to get your foot in the door on your first job but it will happen if you believe in yourself and what you can do.

- David O'Reilly, BComm 2001

In this era of uncertainty, fear, and even desperation and so many unprecedented feelings and experiences, there is hope in the distance. Things are getting better and hopefully will be even better in the months to come. You managed to overcome all the obstacles ahead of you and succeed your goals. No matter what you should be proud of yourselves. Like “The Smiths” said “There is a light that never goes out”. You are this light. Never forget that. Keep going, keep trying, keep believing. You can do this.
