Our Amazing Alumni

"Each of my years on DUBES helped me hone my time management skills and perfect a work-life balance, but as President this was especially true. Balancing the needs of a committee, thousands of society members, as well as your own was a skill that only my final year on DUBES could have taught me. Besides this, the society created friendships and memories that I’ll take with me into my final year of college and beyond."
Maeve Lavelle
Auditor 89th Session
"DUBES was always a serious organisation which knew how to party. The world changed and I think the business piece became very “sexy” in 1985. So the B in DUBES became important while Economics while key was less popular. But ultimately the core values and legacy were always what the amazing Trinity economists fostered and innovated. DUBES offered an invaluable way to network, learn and gain new skills – not least of which were speaking and writing for an often cynical audience. I sense in a Pandemic world – the Economics skillset will become key – while the ability to network is essential. DUBES has never been more important as a fulcrum for Trinity Business and Economics and can set a new path for the next 50 years building on the last 40 successful years."

"My involvement with Dubes was probably my most valuable college experience. It led to great friends, important life lessons and unforgettable experiences."
