Message from the President
Welcome to the Chesapeake and Potomac Pitt Club! Founded in 1990 with the goal of carrying on the University of Pittsburgh tradition, the C&P Pitt Club continues to forge a strong bond among Pitt alumni throughout the DC metro area. As President of the Club, I am excited at the opportunity to carry on Pitt’s rich history and am looking forward to making our already great and successful Club even better!
The Chesapeake and Potomac Pitt Club always has something going on for its alumni of different interests. Pitt fans come together on a regular basis to cheer on the Panthers at game watches. We also field our own alumni teams through the Capital Alumni Network (CAN), to include softball, flag football and soccer.
While we like to play hard, we also work hard. The Club strongly believes in giving back to the local community through volunteering and community service. Other Club promoted activities include networking events and happy hours, as well hosting Pitt faculty speakers and attending Pittsburgh-related exhibits and events.
While a lot of what the club does is aimed at current alumni, we strongly believe in the future of Pitt and we are constantly striving to create a better Pitt for future graduates of the University. This is achieved in part through our coveted Gold Banner status, which provides select incoming students with the opportunity for an academic scholarship. It is this focus on creating a great Pitt experience that makes the Chesapeake and Potomac Pitt Club so great. The Club continues to earn awards for its work both in the community and in competitions with other area schools.
The Chesapeake and Potomac Club offers something for everybody, but we are always looking for new ideas and new members to further enhance the experience. With the Club's fantastic membership, anything is possible. I encourage you to join the Club and connect with your fellow Alumni!
Hail to Pitt!
