About Us



What is the Cincy Ivy Young Alumni Club?
  • An organization consisting of Ivy League and Seven Sisters young alumni in the Greater Cincinnati area, founded in November 2001.
  • We facilitate cross-institution events with the hope that broad-based events will attract larger groups than traditional single club gatherings.
  • We generally define "young alumni" as the last twenty graduating classes.

How does the Cincy Ivy Young Alumni 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 young alumni 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 Young Alumni Club important?

  • Young alumni can often feel underserved by their local clubs which lack the size to host the single-club young alumni 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 young alumni are adept at connecting with high school students through the admissions process.
  • We find young Ivy alumni new to Cincinnati who are not on their alumni clubs' lists.

Currently, we have about 320 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 other area alumni from Ivy League and Seven Sisters schools to become involved. Please contact Cincy Ivy Young Alumni Club Coordinator Sid D'Souza if interested.
