Welcome to the Harvard Club of Washington, DC!
We’re an outpost of Cambridge in the nation’s capital, offering unique and entertaining events, stimulating conversation, and the good company of your fellow alumni.
I invite all alumni, their spouses, current students, and the parents of current students to join our Club. Our mission is to serve the interests of Harvard, its alumni, and its current students in the Washington, DC, area. We sponsor educational, cultural, social, and charitable events and programs to connect DC-area alumni with Harvard, the DC communities, and one another. Each year we raise funds to sponsor two Harvard College students for Summer Community Service Fellowships at the cost of $7,000 for their stipends, raise scholarship funds for Harvard College students from the DC area, reach out to prospective applicants, and meet our goal each year of interviewing every single applicant from the DC area.
Come meet your fellow alumni at our monthly happy hour or at one of our signature embassy events. Or join in one of our monthly community-service events. If you’re a Harvard College graduate, join the Schools Committee to interview applicants or represent Harvard at college fairs. If you graduated from any of the Harvard schools in the last ten years, come to a Recent Grads dinner to meet other new alumni.
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our Club relies on your membership dues and additional donations to raise funds for our charitable work. If you’re a member, thank you very much indeed for your support. If you’re not yet a member, please join our Club and begin enjoying the benefits of membership. Benefits include members-only prices or priority for most of our events, members-only events, and advanced notice of events through the members-only email edition of our newsletter. Please remember that your dues and donations are fully tax-deductible.
A little about me: I was born in Taiwan and grew up in Nashville, where some of my favorite things were sweet tea, fried chicken, and, incongruously, watching the Boston Celtics on TV. I went on to a school just outside of Boston, graduated with a degree in Government, went up to Oxford for a master's in Philosophy, and returned to Harvard for law school. Now I work as a legal analyst in civil-fraud litigation at the US Department of Justice. My hobbies include travel, needlepoint, and badminton, and I'm always up for dim sum or afternoon tea!
I hope to meet many of you in the coming months.
