As one of the largest, all-volunteer chapters outside of California, the Washington, D.C. alumni club brings together the estimated 10,000 Cal Bears that reside in the National Capital Region, which encompasses the D.C. metropolitan area of southern Maryland & northern Virginia.​

With nearly 300 active members, the club organizes over 100 events a year, which seek to connect our alumni with opportunities related to networking (both social & career), lifelong learning, community service, professional development, athletics, & student outreach. The Annual Reception is the premier annual event of the Cal Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. This important event helps raise much-needed funding to support our expansive club operations and to support student scholarships at UC Berkeley. In addition we bring together newly admitted students to Cal from our area every summer for our annual picnic & welcome party.

    Whitlow's recently moved from Clarendon to U Street (into the old Brixton space), and we are looking forward to checking it out! Please join us on their great rooftop space, assuming the weather cooperates. We will enjoy the fall equinox sunset while taking advantage of their happy hour specials!

    We will have some space set up for us in the outdoors space of their rooftop area. Most importantly, though, they have great happy hour pricing! Their drink specials run from 5-8pm, and food pricing from 5-7pm:
