University Club: food, and food for thought

February 08, 2010

ASU’s University Club is more than just a place to dine and mingle – though there are plenty of opportunities for that, too.

The club is a place to learn, through the colloquium series presented each year.

The colloquia are open to both club members and non-members. Lunch is served – the Chef’s Choice Buffet – for $15.

Next up in the series is a talk by Jay Q. Butler, who holds the Arizona Realtors Professorship in Real Estate, titled “Real Estate in Today’s Economy,” at noon on Feb. 16. Butler also is director of realty studies for the W.P. Carey School of Business.

Also a popular event at the club is High Tea, which takes place once a month. The next High Tea will be from 2 to 4 p.m. March 9. The teas include scones, tea sandwiches, and your choice of tea. Cost is $12 per person.

To make reservations for the colloquium or High Tea, contact Debi Smith at (480) 965-0701.

Membership to the University Club is available to all ASU faculty, staff and alumni, and for a limited time, the initial fee, which is regularly $100, will be waived for the first 100 new members. To take advantage of this opportunity, faculty and staff members are requested to pay for their dues via payroll deduction with a cost of just $7.50 per paycheck.

For ASU Alumni, the University Club will waive the first six months' membership fees (a savings of $120) when you become a U Club member. The initial fee is $100 and monthly fees are $20.

ASU parent also may join, with the first five months of membership dues waived for a savings of $110.
