Faculty Club Discounted Dues

There has never been a better time to join the Faculty Club, now settled in its beautiful new facility in the Inn at Penn. Club membership is open to all faculty, staff and alumni of the University.

The Club is open to members for lunch Monday through Friday throughout the year, with a generous and very reasonable fixed price buffet in one of its dining rooms and a full-service menu in the other. Members can also drop by for complimentary morning coffee and pastry during the week. The Club is open for dinner several nights per month, featuring monthly theme dinners and a dinner speaker series.

Annual dues are only $30 (September 1 through August 31). However, during our mid-year membership drive, special discounted dues of just $15 are being offered. (As always, first-year membership for first-year faculty and staff is free.)

We hope that you will give serious consideration to joining. A membership application is available for download on the Club website www.upenn.edu/faculty-club and in the University telephone directory (page 31). Should you have any questions or need more information, feel free to contact the Club Coordinator, Natalka Swavely, at (215) 898-4618 or at swavely@pobox.upenn.edu.
