ColumbiaDC is a membership-based organization. While you may join some of our events as a non-member and receive emails, many of our events and activities are designated as members-only.

Why Membership?

As a Member, you'll receive many benefits including discounts to high-profile gatherings from cultural programs to networking conferences, as well as exclusive invitations to other Ivy events. These events are a collaborative effort between the Washington, DC metropolitan area alumni organizations of the eight Ivy League schools: Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton, and Yale, as well as other major universities such as MIT, UC Berkeley, Stanford, and more.
