About Us

The Ivy Plus Society (“TIPS”) produces social networking events for young alumni of a select group of schools, with the aim of creating a community of talented, dynamic individuals.

The chance to meet incredible people was one of the best aspects of the schools we were privileged to attend. TIPS events extend those opportunities beyond the iron gates of our alma maters.

The Ivy Plus Society recognizes the need to set the roof on fire and raise a glass with friends, new and old. So we aim to bring you parties brimming with smart, sexy fun at the best venues in town. Our philosophy: If you are going to go out, might as well head somewhere fabulous!

Membership and participation in The Ivy Plus Society and its events are limited to those who meet the qualifications set forth below*. However TIPS members and qualified alumni attending events are welcome to bring guests from non-TIPS schools.

About the Schools

Alumni from the schools listed below are invited to attend TIPS events. The schools below include members of the Ivy League as well as similarly select U.S. and international universities. We have found that alumni of these schools generally share some of the same values, including: appreciation of academic and professional excellence; intellectual curiosity; leadership; and civic and philanthropic engagement.

*The list below does not aspire to be a definitive list of the world’s “best” universities. TIPS recognizes that the world is full of many other rigorous and equally valuable educational experiences, and that talented alumni from many other schools may share the values listed above. So if you did not attend one of the schools below and you feel that you share these TIPS values and would appreciate the community TIPS endeavors to create, we hope you will feel welcome to attend our events. To do so, please email events@ivyplussociety.org to make an admission request.
