The Rutgers Club of the Lehigh Valley offers a wide range of fun activities for Club Members and Guests. Our mixers are designed to build relationships that will last a lifetime. We also have a serious side, as we provide opportunities to volunteer with local charities as representatives of Rutgers.
We strive to have fun in everything we do, and to represent Rutgers well by becoming involved in our communities! If you have an idea for a different type of activity, let us know — we can do anything that makes sense. You are welcome, and so are your ideas!
The Rutgers Club of Lehigh Valley is affiliated with the Rutgers University Alumni Association (RUAA). The RUAA’s mission is to advance the best interests and well being of Rutgers University by engaging all alumni in the life of the institution through communication, programming, services and volunteer opportunities.
