What is the Cincy Ivy Club?
An organization focused on Ivy League graduates in the Greater Cincinnati area.
We facilitate cross-institution events exclusively for recent graduates that attract larger groups than traditional single club gatherings. We adhere to the individual definitions of "recent graduates" offered by our sponsoring universities.
We facilitate communication, interaction and event invitations between local Ivy clubs.
Apart from events for recent graduates, we organize seasonal social gatherings throughout the year that are open to Ivy League graduates of all graduation years.
How does the Cincy Ivy Club aim to bring alumni together?
We host monthly recent graduate happy hours at Downtown Cincinnati venues.
We coordinate social events for Ivy League graduates of all graduation years.
We inform members by e-mail about local Ivy events.
We facilitate mentorship programs to bring recent graduates together with established alumni on professional or service lines.
We manage a college coaching program for recent graduates to assist public high 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 peer networks outside of the workplace.
We aid in retaining talented recent graduates in Cincinnati by helping them to develop mentorship networks with established alumni.
An Ivy education should continue after graduation through involvement in alumni activities.
We leverage enthusiastic recent graduates who are adept at connecting with high school students through the admissions process to improve the community.
We find Ivy recent graduates new to Cincinnati who are not on their alumni clubs' lists.
Currently, we have about 600 area alumni on our mailing list. We have several recent graduate 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 in leadership of our social, mentorship and service initiatives. Please contact our Cincy Ivy Club President if interested.
