The Cavalier Daily Alumni Association is a strictly volunteer-based organization. As a result, its existence depends on the time and energy of its members. If you would like to devote any amount of time to the CDAA — by serving as a board member, organizing activities for alums, mentoring students, or sharing your expertise at a workshop, etc. please contact CDAA President Alexis Gravely (Col ’19).
