Special Interest Groups

Special Interest Groups help members connect on a more personal level and tend to be rewarding and fulfilling. Form a group comprised of members sharing a common interest (Book Club, Mommy ‘n Me, Sister Mixers) with the intention of having this group create a bond with one another as well as the alumnae group. Interest Groups should have a chairman to be a liaison between the SIG and the alumnae chapter or association.

If you have any questions regarding the Special Interest Groups, please contact the SIG coordinators listed under each group or email them.  

Be on the lookout for our next SIG event on the Upcoming Events page, 2020-2021 Calendar, or on the Special Interest Groups Calendar page!

DGs Out & About  


We hope you will join us as we explore with our Special Interest Group, “DGs Out & About!” We never know where or when we will be going, but we always know we will enjoy the experience.  This is our third year as a SIG. Events we have had in the past are: Movies (Star is Born, Rocketman), docent led tour of Crystal Cove Cottages and Lunch, Hilbert Museum and lunch in Old town Orange, Taco Tuesday at La Vida Cantina in Costa Mesa, Bowling, tour of Rancho Los Alamitos.....all have been fun events!

Feel free to reach out to us with your own suggestions for DGs Out & About! This year we are hoping to do some fun, picturesque hiking, enjoy a holiday event, and learn how to make a long lasting, beautiful succulent dish garden for home or gifting! Some events may be via the internet, but we are hoping to also see you in person soon!

Come join us as we explore places and things that are Out & About! We will let you know when an event is coming up.

We meet for luncheon dine outs, museum visits, movies, craft classes, workshops or exploring something new.
