About The Ivy Club
winter, following an interview process known as bicker, The Ivy Club invites a
group of 65 to 70 Princeton sophomores to become members. This group from each class forms an Ivy
section. During their junior and senior years, these students take all of their
meals at the Club and frequent it for relaxation, study, and socializing with
their fellow members and guests. In
addition, Ivy offers a number of educational programs during the academic year.
might be expected at an eating club, meals at Ivy are important not only for
their quality and variety, but for the opportunity they provide for social
interactions that can lead to close, and in many cases, lifelong
friendships. In the Club's dining room (shown above), Ivy
tradition dictates that each person will take the next available chair at the
long tables to ensure that members get to know each other.
in The Ivy Club continues for life, and graduate members are always welcome at
the Club. Over its history of 135 years,
only 4,300 Princetonians have been Ivy members, and there are now 2,800 living graduates. Graduate and undergraduate members belong to Ivy, but more importantly, Ivy
belongs to them. Their loyalty and support over many decades have kept the
Club's spirit and fabric strong.
All Princeton sophomores are welcome to bicker at Ivy.
