Alpine Club Funding
The DU Alpine Club is one of the most unique clubs that is currently on campus. Throughout the years the club has seen many drastic changes as in the 1970's it had membership numbers that were around 800 and then it was almost completely eliminated in the 1980's until the late 90's. When the club was revamped in the late 1990's new leadership undertook the task of taking the steps to make the club into what it is today.
Because of what the Alpine Club has to offer to students and the organization of events, membership has exploded in recent years. This has lead to a major increase in funding. We are the most active and single largest club on campus and therefore we receive funding based upon our performance.
Funding comes from the AUSA Senate (All Undergradate Student Association) which votes on where the money from the student activity fee is spent. The student activity fee is a small amount of money that is included in your tuition.
The Alpine Club offers trips and activities at low costs because it receives a large chunk of it's money from the AUSA.

Resources for other DU Clubs
The Alpine Club supports all the different clubs on campus and we are willing to help promote or help organize anything that you may have. Our officers have a lot of experience in programming, advertising, requesting funds, and overall organizational growth.
We are willing to help and have the resources that many other clubs and organizations do not have.

Alpine Club Officers
New Alpine Club officers are elected at the end of Winter quarter. These elections are open to all DUAC members and anyone can run for any position. The people that are elected are the ones that make all the financial decisions, run the events, coordinate, and advertise. If you are interested in running contact any current officer and they will help you with any questions that you may have.
Every week during the school year the officers have a meeting to plan trips, coordinate details and do anything else necessary to make the club a success. These meetings are held at 8:00pm on Mondays at the Tennis Tower Pavillion (Next to the Art building right off of Asbury blvd).
The club officers work very hard to plan and coordinate all the programs and trips that we do. We are completely self sufficient as everything produced is originally thought of by officers including all the advertising such as this website, and all the programs. We work to the best of a abilities to create a fun environment while taking you to some awesome adventures.
If you have any questions, would like to suggest a change, have any problems, or have any other comments about the club please contact the President or any other officer at any time.
