Requirements for Membership

While a college or university degree is the customary prerequisite for membership eligibility, the Club recognizes that many individuals have led interesting lives and acquired fascinating expertise without benefit of a formal university education; accordingly, the absence of a degree does not prohibit membership for men and women whose life experience and achievements would clearly enhance and strengthen the Club.  A number of memberships are available for such uniquely qualified persons.

In addition to a college/university degree or the equivalent, sponsorship by two club members is required.  If you are not acquainted with members to serve as sponsors, the Membership Committee will arrange for you to meet with two members who can make recommendations for acceptance.

 All rights and privileges of University Club membership become effective upon notification of an applicant’s acceptance into the membership and payment of annual or prorated dues.

 

Dues and Fees

Dues are $300 per year for individuals or $450 for couples.  In addition a $25 initiation fee is required with each application.  The Club’s fiscal year begins May 1, with annual dues payable on that date.  For new members joining during the year, dues are prorated on a quarterly basis and must be paid upon acceptance.

 

All programs and events are free for members, except for those where meals are served.  In those cases the fee is announced in advance and is paid before the event or at the door.

Guests and Visitors are invited to attend our Intellectual Activities.  A five dollar voluntary contribution is requested to assist in defraying the Club’s operating expenses.

Orientation

The University Club conducts an orientation program for new members several times during the year.  New members are formally introduced to the Club members and staff, and are given a presentation on the Club’s mission, values, activities, history, and community-service programs.  The Chairs of various activity committees provide an overview of their programs.  A cocktail reception follows where new members mingle with old members in a spirit of camaraderie and fellowship.
