Welcome Back, Alumni

Celebrating PDS & USNWelcome Alumni!

The PDS/USN community is grateful for so many engaged alumni who are passionate about our school and generously offer their time and resources to further the school's mission and legacy.

Each student becomes a member of the PDS/USN Alumni Association upon graduating and joins the 4,000+ strong alumni body spread across the globe. We are better for the continued involvement and support of our alumni association and hope you will consider ways in which you might participate and connect with the school and with your fellow alumni. 
In addition to the resources and opportunities listed on this website, there are many ways to stay in touch and involved, including following our multiple social media channels, by visiting our campus, or attending an alumni event in your city. We hope that you'll join us!
Please contact with any questions, to update your contact information, or send us a note about what and how you are doing.
