Our History

Spreading Pitt pride since 1992!

Blue and Gold History

The Blue and Gold Society was founded in 1992 by the University of Pittsburgh Alumni Association. The association was looking for 25 juniors and seniors who were well spoken, involved on campus, and able to act as student representatives for the university.  While the same holds true today, members now include sophomore student leaders as well.

The first president of the Blue and Gold Society was Christine Dockey. She helped develop the society’s outstanding reputation on campus. Since then, 21 presidents have followed in her footsteps. In addition, the Blue and Gold Society has served under three Chancellors: J. Dennis O’Conner, Mark Nordenberg, and Patrick Gallagher. Although responsibilities have grown in number of duties and events, the foundation of the Blue and Gold Society remains strong and true – our members are student leaders full of Pitt pride; they are ambassadors for the University, representing the student body among alumni, faculty, and staff.
