Frequently Asked Questions
The Ivy Singles Social Club is the combined effort of several regional alumni clubs in the Washington, DC area. The "Bigger is Better" principle applies here, since the more clubs participate, the better turnout we have, the more people you meet, and the better chance you have of meeting someone special. Even if you don't meet someone special, you will undoubtedly meet someone interesting.
Each event is run by one or more of the alumni groups, which are completely responsible for the event. Each group has one (or more if we're lucky) representative who handles the details. These school representatives make the whole thing work, and we are indebted to them.
You may attend any event if you are an alumnus of one of the member schools. Alumnus means graduate, but we don't check diplomas at the door.
No membership or dues are required. You may want to sign up for the e-mail list to get information on upcoming events.
If your school doesn't have a representative, how about becoming one? We are always seeking to broaden participation and welcome new ideas.
Since advance planning is critical, paid reservations are encouraged and discounted. Typically, advance reservations cost $20, with walk-ins and unpaid reservations costing $25. If you've paid in advance, it is your responsibility to show up. No refunds are given for no-shows. We'd like to see you there!
Unlike many groups, there is no membership fee. You may come to events as your schedule and inclination allow. The event costs cover admission and hors d'oeuvres. A cash bar is usually available.
The money goes to venue rental and catering costs. None of the reps get paid for his or her efforts, although those who work at each event are admitted free.
If an event makes a profit, the money is returned to the alumni groups in proportion to their participation. The more people from your school who show up, the more is returned to your alumni association (hopefully).
