About Us



What is the Cincy Ivy Club?
  • An organization focused on Ivy League recent graduates in the Greater Cincinnati area.
  • We facilitate cross-institution events with the hope that broad-based events will attract larger groups than traditional single club gatherings.
  • We generally define "recent graduates" as the last twenty graduating classes; though we adhere first and foremost to the individual definitions of "recent graduates" offered by our sponsoring clubs and schools.

How does the Cincy Ivy Club aim to bring alumni together?

  • SOCIAL:
    • We sponsor monthly Friday happy hours at Downtown Cincinnati establishments.
    • We inform members by e-mail and the web about local Ivy events.
  • MENTORSHIP:
    • We facilitate mentorship programs to bring recent graduates together with established alumni on professional or service lines.
  • SERVICE:
    • We manage a college coaching program to help counsel public school students through the admissions process.

Why is the Cincy Ivy Club important?

  • Recent graduates can often feel underserved by their local clubs which lack the size to host the single-club recent graduates events that are very popular in larger cities.
  • We aid in attracting and keeping talented individuals in Cincinnati by helping them form a peer network outside of the workplace.
  • We aid in retaining talented individuals in Cincinnati by helping them to develop mentorship networks with established alumni.
  • An Ivy education should continue after graduation through involvement in alumni activities.
  • Enthusiastic recent graduates are adept at connecting with high school students through the admissions process.
  • We find Ivy recent graduates new to Cincinnati who are not on their alumni clubs' lists.

Currently, we have about 350 area alumni on our mailing list. We have several representatives from local alumni clubs involved in planning events and fostering coordination with their respective clubs.
  
We invite all area alumni from Ivy League schools to become involved. Please contact our Cincy Ivy Club President if interested.
