“Leaving San Francisco is like saying goodbye to an old sweetheart,” Walter Cronkite once said. “You want to linger as long as possible.” Hasn’t every Vassar alum experienced those pangs of nostalgia upon being kicked to the other side of Raymond Avenue on some May afternoon? Our college years may be behind us, but the Vassar alumni community is as alive as San Francisco itself.
Like Vassar, San Francisco is a wholly unique. There’s no other city quite like it — its diversity, its culture, its arts and entertainment, and its coastline cannot be found anywhere else. Not surprisingly, it is also home to thousands of Vassar alumni.
The Vassar Club of San Francisco serves those alumni in ways large and small, hosting a wide range of innovative programs throughout the city. We bring members of Vassar’s esteemed faculty to San Francisco for readings and lecture series. We work with the local clubs of other elite colleges and universities, allowing Vassar graduates to meet peers and form new friendships. Perhaps most importantly, the Club organizes career discussions and other events with Vassar alumnae/i leaders in various industries, giving VCDC members valuable networking and professional development opportunities.
