Welcome to the official website of the Penn Club of Seattle.
We are an entirely volunteer-run alumni club, striving to connect and build community among our 3,800+ Penn alumni throughout the state of Washington. We are supported financially by the generous support of our dues-paying members, which allows us to plan a diverse and broad set of events for our alumni. Our social, community service, cultural, educational, and outdoor activities are a great way to meet and mingle with other local Penn alumni and to stay abreast of developments on Penn’s campus.
Please join us for one of our upcoming events and consider supporting the club with a dues-paying membership. And if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for events, please click "Contact Us" above.
We look forward to seeing you at a Club event soon! Thank you.
