About the Washington DC Stanford AssociationThe Washington DC Stanford Association (WDCSA) is the chapter of the Stanford Alumni Association for the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. WDCSA membership is completely independent of membership in the Stanford Alumni Association. We currently have about 365 members. We welcome Stanford alums (undergraduate and graduate degrees), those who attended Stanford but didn't graduate, and Stanford parents, particularly of current students.
Be a part of Stanford's CAPITAL Community - Join the Washington, DC Stanford Association
The Washington DC Stanford Association has worked to sustain the Stanford spirit in our nation's capital for more than 75 years. Become a member of WDCSA to:
- Support your local alumni community and remain engaged with Stanford
- Pick and choose every month from a wide variety of social, professional, academic, recreational and community service activities
- Reconnect with classmates, meet new friends and network with established local alums.
We sponsor about 5 programs each month throughout the year, which include:
- Big Game party with Cal
- Cultural events -- the Museum of the American Indian evening, Washington National Opera, and two monthly book groups
- Lectures and talks by Stanford faculty and prominent alums
- Sports events -- Big Game, the WDCSA softball and basketball teams, Stanford athletic events (by TV at sports bars and in person when teams come to this area), and Citi Open (tennis) box seats
- Sendoff party for Incoming Freshmen
- Young alum events including community service opportunities
We offer a wide variety of events. Events are priced to cover the cost of the event, exclusive of mailing costs and other costs of running the club. We offer a number of free events, and almost no event (except cultural events where we purchase tickets) is more than $20.
