Welcome to Harvard Club of Saint Louis
The Harvard Club of Saint Louis is your connection to the St. Louis Harvard community! The Club is dedicated to promoting Harvard through service, scholarship, and social events. There are many opportunities to get involved in the club including interviewing prospective students, attending club events, and meeting and interacting with other Harvard alumni.
We have several fun annual events including the Harvard-Yale Game watch party (November), the Holiday Party (December), the All-Ivy Chinese Lunar New Year dim-sum event (February), and the Annual Dinner (June). Other recent social and cultural events have included architectural tours, museum visits, plays, and visits to an operating dairy farm! Our young alumni will host a “welcome to your city” event this fall. In addition, we have an active group working to address educational disparities and promote early college awareness.
We welcome new members and new ideas for events and activities of interest to our alumni. The Harvard Club of Saint Louis is an all-volunteer alumni organization, and member dues represent our only source of income – we receive no financial assistance from the University. Since we are a registered tax-exempt, non-profit organization, your dues are tax-deductible. Many of our events are free, and others are priced well below cost. We also offer a discounted rate to recent graduates. A portion of member dues goes towards the Club’s annual contribution to scholarship funds for local students attending Harvard.
There are two ways to join or renew your membership:
1) Click on the “Membership” tab above. The system will ask you to log in using your HarvardKey, and then you will be able to complete the transaction and pay by credit card.
