As President of the Harvard Club of Santa Barbara, serving Harvard alumni/ae in three counties (Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obisbo), I welcome you to the Club and our website.
Throughout the year, the Club sponsors a variety of activities, among them talks by current Harvard faculty and local Harvard alums, informal lunches and discussions at local clubs and restaurants, social events (e.g. receptions, game nights, and "The Game" party), local outings and tours, and community service events. You can find descriptions of past events by clicking on the "Events" tab above.
The Club, through its Schools Committee, organizes the work of the more than 30 local Harvard alumni/ae who interview the numerous high school seniors in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties who apply each year for admission to Harvard College.
The Club is currently making a major effort to make its activities appealing and accessible to recent alums. Our annual membership costs only $45, and we now offer a discounted rate for a three-year membership. Please join us by registering here
In this period in which our social fabric seems to be fraying, our Club officers and directors are especially committed to working with alums in our area to reinforce Harvard’s commitment to community responsibility. We look forward to seeing you at future events.
