University of Utah Faculty Club
“Imagine U and Us”
New Faculty, Experienced Faculty, Emeritus Faculty, join us!
Whether you have just moved here, or you want to share your local knowledge of the area, we have a place for you. Do you feel like widening your social circles? Do you have a funny looking mole you want to show off? Do you want to mingle with legal scholars who may or may not be able to help with your legal issues? Do you want to meet some artsy members of the arts department? Ever wonder how librarians organize their time, or how astronomers look at issues?
Our faculty club is a group of individuals (of all ages) who meet on a monthly basis to mingle and share our experiences. Our group has over 250 members, and we have activities planned to allow us to get to know our University and each other.
We host Socials on the first Friday of the month, Basketball pizza parties, and are planning events with our Gymnastics and Volleyball programs, as well as Arts and Theater departments to sponsor activities for faculty club members. Kingsbury Hall and Pioneer Theater are getting in on the act! We’ve planted the seeds for fun with Red Butte Gardens.
The December Holiday Party includes dinner and a white elephant gift exchange. Our boisterous end of year business meeting also has a full dinner.
One of our longest-standing traditions is hosting and planning the Children’s Holiday Party for all University-related kids. Balloon animals, singing, dancing, theatrical productions, magic show and crafts – we host it all!
