HVC Marketplace


Welcome to the HVC Marketplace!

The HVC Marketplace – where the HVC offers substantial discounts on products made by Harvard alumni athletes, with a portion of all sales benefitting HVC student activities such as the Welcome Back BBQ, first-year tee shirts, and select Career Services events.

We are thrilled to continue our HVC Marketplace features with Mike Patterson ’91 and traü.

See below for past Marketplace features

Meet Traü

Traü started as a hobby project in an attempt to emulate the good old “U-Trau” that Chet and Artie used to hold very tight to their chests and then became a mission to promote men’s health and wellness. We make premium high quality workout underwear for men (women like them too) while promoting men’s physical, mental and emotional wellness in everything we do.

Traü will also donate a portion of the proceeds made in Marketplace sales back to the HVC. We appreciate your support!

Meet Mike Patterson '91

Mike Patterson was a two-time Varsity letterwinner and played Safety and special teams for the Harvard football team all four years while at Harvard. He told really bad jokes during training camp and was best known for his practice squad TFL of then All-Ivy League running back Tony Heinz, forcing him to fumble in the backfield. He wasn’t carried off the practice squad on the shoulders of his teammates but his coach Leo Fanning DID give him the only complement of his career following the play.
