Members-Only University Clubs

11/05/2007 12:32:00 PM
There's an article in yesterday's Globe that talks about downtown University Clubs. These are member's-only clubs for the mover and shaker alumni in the area to dine. The four universities featured: BU, BC, UMass, and Harvard.

Catering to well-heeled alumni and power brokers, the clubs are popular destinations for business lunches, meetings, and formal functions.

If there's one thing I've learned after joining the workforce, it's who you know, not what you know. And so I ask, why isn't there an MIT club? If there was one, I'd join in a heartbeat. Something about members-only makes it seem exclusive and desirable.

According to the article, membership at the BC and UMass clubs are invitation only. That leaves BU and Harvard. I started doing some research and non-Harvard folks can join the Downtown club (here). And you can get more information on the BU club (here) where half of its members did not attend BU.
