In college days we sing her praise,
and so, when far away,
In memory we still shall be at the dear old UVA.
-The Good Old Song
The Virginia Club of New York is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to strengthening the ties among University of Virginia alumni living in the tristate area. There are over 7,000 UVA graduates currently living in the five boroughs and over 10,000 in the tristate area – the Club welcomes them all!
Whether it be a summer softball game in Central Park, a Saturday morning serving food at the soup kitchen in the East Village, or dancing with drink in hand to live swing music at the Holiday Party, the Virginia Club of New York brings together University alumni to enjoy each other’s company while taking part in fun and fulfilling events throughout New York City.
The Club hosts more then 100 events every year ranging from professional development panels, networking receptions, community service outings, to happy hours, sports gamewatches and more! All Wahoos are welcome to join by either becoming a member, attending our events, or leading their own initiatives. Through our programming, we seek to encourage the development of a community that embodies the values, culture, and connections developed at UVA.
The Club strives to empower alumni to be part of something greater than themselves and continue to cultivate a sense of community among the UVA network after graduation, and for many years to come. We are committed to maintaining our leadership position in the UVA Club’s network and will continue to set the example for other clubs through organizational strength, involvement, and programming.
