The Senators Club is a social networking and philanthropic group that all alumni may join.

The Senators Club was founded in 1923 by a group of commuter students in the School of Engineering and Architecture. Even after those students graduated, they continued to organize annual gatherings. Over the years, they were joined by alumni of the rest of the University.

With members including University leaders and revered residents in the D.C. area, the Senators Club is a who's who of elite alumni.


As it has always been, membership is informal: If you want to join, just attend events and become a part of the vibrant community that is the Senators Club.

Many members of the Senators Club have served The Catholic University of America in various positions, including National Presidents of the Alumni Association, the Alumni Board of Governors, and the University's Board of Trustees.

Originally formed by architects and engineers, the club continues to attract members of those fields. Years back, Washingtonian magazine featured the builders of Washington — those men and their companies who were the architects, engineers, and builders of some of D.C.’s most well-known structures. Many of those listed in that article were members of the Senators Club.

Networking and philanthropy

The Senators Club is known for its networking and philanthropy. With networking, they help Catholic University alumni advance their business acumen. With philanthropy, they support the University that gave them a solid educational foundation.

The Senators Club Alumni Scholarship

The Senators Club strives to help current students obtain a Catholic University education. To that end, members of the club have endowed a scholarship that financially assists students to attend Catholic University. Each year, club members help this endowment grow with additional gifts. Since its inception in 1986, the Senators Club Alumni Scholarship has grown to be the largest organizational scholarship fund at the University.
