Message from the President

Bigger Circles.
Tighter Connections.
Greater Engagement.

There’s never been a better time to get re-engaged as an alumnus of La Salle University!

During a recent walk on campus, I experienced a “buzz” of excitement in the air!  The incoming freshman class is the highest it’s been in 25 years.  There’s more green space than ever before.  25 Division I sports teams.  The Tom Gola Arena is now at the TruMark Financial Center.  There’s a brand new bookstore, La Salle Outpost, to purchase your La Salle gear.  Student life on and off campus is alive and well. And, academics in the spirit of John Baptist de La Salle, have never been stronger.

The Alumni Association is focused on a number of ways to build bigger alumni circles, tighter connections and greater engagement.  This includes an emphasis on fighting campus hunger with an expanded Food Cupboard Program and the introduction of the Alumni House, one of the only alumni houses in Philadelphia!  The Peale House, where the alumni house will be located, is a unique and historic location that no other alumni group can match.  I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture.  It’s an invigorating time at La Salle. Come and join us!

La Salle is experiencing a revolutionary-like Renaissance like none other, led by President Colleen Hancyz and her talented staff, as well as a dedicated Board of Trustees and devoted Alumni Association.   It’s very exciting and I encourage you, your family and friends to be part of it.

There’s many ways to get re-engaged.  Just visit this website and explore the various links:

  • NETWORK: View upcoming events, What’s New at La Salle and where regional clubs are located
  • GET INVOLVED: Sign up for the Interview Program for prospective students, service opportunities and more.

And, if you are still not sure, just contact La Salle’s Alumni Relations at or call 215-951-1535.

Finally, it’s time to dust off that blue and gold La Salle gear, even if it’s been in your closet and drawers for years (you can always order online at or stop by the La Salle Outpost).  Wear it with pride and a bit of swagger.  Our time has come.

Explorers are Never Lost,
