The University Club is open to all faculty, staff, administrative professionals, and annuitants. The group provides a congenial venue where we learn about the University and the local community and have the opportunity to get to know our very diverse and interesting colleagues from across the University. We provide a comfortable and friendly environment where we can gather on a weekly basis to socialize and meet old friends and new colleagues. We also sponsor and provide five to ten student scholarships every year through independent donations from our members. Our Gourmet Dinners offer an additional venue through which members, ISU affiliates and the local community can meet and learn about each other while enjoying an excellent meal.
During the academic year, we meet on most Fridays from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in the Faculty Staff Commons Area, located in the Northeast corner of the Bone Student Center. There is a cash bar and free hors d'oeuvres. At 4:30 p.m, guest speakers give a brief presentation about a University or local event, about current topics in the news that are of general interest or about ongoing activities and research by University faculty and staff. All presentations include time for discussion.
Complementary free membership in the University Club this year has been extended to ALL ISU faculty, staff, administrative professionals and annuitants. Major programming and facilities support for U-Club is provided by generous contributions from the Provost's Office and the President's Office. We also ask regular attendees to consider voluntary contributions to the U-Club program and/or the U-Club scholarship funds through the ISU Foundation.
