Alumni

American College Dublin is exceptionally proud of the achievements of those who have graduated from the institution. The College is keen to maintain and develop contact with those who have passed through its doors and to that end invites all who have not already done so – whether a graduate of a degree programme or of the study abroad programme, whether recent or from the institution’s earliest days – to join ACD Alumni, the institution's alumni society, by following the link from this page and completing the form.

Just as the College is proud of its alumni, graduates are proud of their qualifications and their academic experiences at ACD. Among their fondest memories of the time spent time at ACD are the people: the variety of classroom and social interactions they have enjoyed with fellow students and faculty members. The practical aspects of the graduate’s education are no less important – the graduates’ learning experiences at ACD provide them with a firm foundation on which to build their further educational and professional endeavours. The College’s alumni consistently cite their education at ACD as playing a major part in their successes in further education and in the world of employment.
