About The Harvard Varsity Club

Harvard's largest, most diverse Club Boasting 25,000+ Passionate Members and 100+ events per year

We create opportunities for alumni, student-athletes, parents and friends to engage with the Harvard Athletics community. Whether it is offering pregame events or professional mentorships, connecting Harvard alumni is our priority.  Annual events like our Senior Letterwinners’ Dinner or our Welcome Back Barbecue bring athletes from all sports together under one roof, while preserving the traditions of Harvard Athletics.  The Susan and Cory ’90 Thabit Varsity Lettersweater program and the HVC Hall of Fame continue to strengthen our community year after year. We thank our generous donors for their support, particularly for enabling our community’s special funds for those in need like the Benson M. Abercrombie ’21 Fund and the Michael Vollmer ’90 Fund.
