Alumni & Friends Go Clubbin'

With 26 Washington University Clubs around the United States and 16 international clubs around the world, your University network is never far away. Club events are a terrific way to extend your network and make new friends. Alumni, parents, and friends are all welcome to attend, and everyone is encouraged to participate.

Events in your area may include a "meeting of the minds" with visiting faculty members in "Classes Without Quizzes," a theatrical performance especially for Washington University Clubs and their guests, or a casual gathering for food and fun. There are fees for activities, but no club dues are required.

Here is a sampling of some great Washington University Club events this year. For the latest on activities in your area, visit us at
