Welcome to the Penn Club of DC!

UPennAW13-222 copyThanks for taking the time to explore the official Penn Club of D.C. website! Our award-winning club serves the entire D.C. Metro region, including nearby Maryland and Virginia. Our goal is to have a broad range of events that will bring alumni of all ages and interests together. So whether you’re out of school one year and new to D.C., or a busy executive well versed in the way D.C. works, or looking for ways to connect with other parents who are going through the application process with their kids, we hope to have something for all of you. Please remember, this is a volunteer group and we count on your participation and ideas to make this the best Penn Alumni Club anywhere.

Our exclusive newsletter mailing list makes sure you’re the first to know of all our Penn special events.  Whether it’s dinning with Penn professors, meeting celebrity alumni, or getting access to some of the coolest events in town, only those who’ve signed up are sure to get invitations to every activity we host.
