About Us

We are first and foremost about giving back to an institution that equipped us to not just withstand the later challenges of life but to thrive in spite of those challenges. The DFW branch is waxing stronger daily and becoming a well-known gathering of respectable members of the community. We currently have over 160 members in the local database about 50 of whom are very active in the association. The branch is uniquely blessed with members that are very comfortable in the company of one another, including our families, and always looking forward to the monthly meetings and other locally organized activities. Members get together to discuss ways to impact the lives of current pool of students lucky enough to attend Great Ife, and reminisce passionately on their own days in that great citadel of learning. Membership composition cuts across generations; from those that matriculated in the 1960s and the newer generations that matriculated in the 2000s. The branch is truly blessed

Some highlights of what we had done are as follow:

  • Working to support a humanitarian project initiated by one of its members, the DFW branch facilitated the donation of few moderately-used Dialysis equipment to the OAU Teaching Hospital in Ile-Ife which was used to part-equip the new Renal Center funded by the Federal Government. The branch also sponsored the visit of a team of technicians from the US to refurbish the equipment on the campus. 
  • The plight of disadvantaged students being a major area of concern to majority of the DFW members, a decision was made to institute need-based annual Scholarship Awards to outstanding indigent students of our Alma Mater.
  • Other activities of the DFW branch include annual volunteer work at the Salvation Army Homeless Shelter, Charity donations to Children Medical Centers as well as to Homeless Shelters, and Mentorship to youth in the community. In addition, the branch has made donations of cash and materials to orphanages in Nigeria and continues to look for opportunities to be of blessing to people in need.     

The DFW branch is waxing stronger daily and becoming a well-known gathering of respectable members of the community. We currently have over 160 members in the local database about 45 of whom are very active in the association. The branch is uniquely blessed with members that are very comfortable in the company of one another, and always looking forward to the monthly meetings and other locally organized activities. Members get together to discuss ways to impact the lives of current pool of students lucky enough to attend Great Ife, and reminisce on their own days in that great citadel of learning.
