Can You Go Home Again?
Welcome Home
David Dendy, VP for Philanthropy

Welcome to the UpDate Homecoming edition.

Where is "Home" for you?
It's been said, "Home is where the heart is..."
For many of us our heart is right at home at UD.


Whether we graduated last May or from the class of 1958, at one time or another we called UD "home".

In this edition of the UpDate our theme is "Homecoming."

Wherever you find yourself reading this edition, we say, "Welcome Home!"

Welcoming our Students Home
Opening Convocation
As the rising sun marks the beginning of a new day, so too the sound of the bagpipes filling the air of the Westminster Presbyterian Church on Tuesday morning, September 25th, marked the beginning of another new school year for the 160th time.

We Are UD!

Are You?
What are the Students up to?
Homecoming Student Life Activities
Danielle Kuboushek, Assistant Director of Student Activities

Spirit boards dripping in Spartan Spirit adorn the Quad. Blue and silver decorations glisten and dance in the wind as they hang from large oak trees across campus. The Belltower dutifully chimes. A UD Blue flag artfully whips in the wind. Cars covered in streamers and banners honk as they crawl through streets, lined with those cheering for the school they love. Leaves crunch under Spartan shoes, making their way to the big game. Encouraging cheers drift from the football field throughout campus. It’s that time of the year when Spartans, new and old, come home and celebrate the traditional Homecoming Activities together.


A New Home
Welcome to the Incoming Students


On Sunday, August 26th, the Alumni office staff, along with some dedicated current students, Alumni, and friends of UD, welcomed our new students with the Second Annual Move In Day.

On a rainy soaked day (one of the very few in Iowa this summer), new students pulled up in their vehicles and their belongings were quickly whisked away to their residence halls as the transition to UD life had begun.

Your Home Away from Home
How to Stay Connected

In this day and age, technology has made the possibility of staying connected to one another as easy as a keystroke or two on our computer or smart phone.

The University of Dubuque Alumni office is doing everything we can to knit together Spartan Nation that spreads out over the globe.

Shaping Character for Lives of Purpose

Annalee Ward, Director of Wendt Center


Campaign ads misrepresent and manipulate truth. Penn State overlooks signs of trouble. Google and Facebook violate privacy. Young professional ghostwrites papers for students. What do these issues have in common? Well perhaps they wouldn't be at issue if we had more people of sound moral character involved. Here at UD, we are committed to challenging and equipping our students to engage the world out of good moral character and a vision for Christ-like community.

Home from a Distance
Seminarians Blaze New Paths
Jana Blazek, MDiv '11

Someday we may be asking ourselves if we remember what life was like in the beginning of 2007.

Remember the days when we didn't have iPhones?

Remember when we didn't know how the Harry Potter books ended?

Remember how things were when you had to physically uproot and move your family across the country to enroll in seminary?
