About the Club

The Alcalá Club is a service organization of men and women who work with the president of the University of San Diego as official representatives of the university. They act as the liaisons between the USD community and the various guests who visit the campus. As the student representatives of the university, they greet and register guests, answer questions about USD, and work at various university sponsored activities and functions.

The Alcalá Club was first started in the spring of 1989. As a result of the enactment of Title IX, the Alcalá Women's and the Alcalá Men's clubs were required to join together. The founding members believed that a service organization was needed for the university. There was yet to be an organization on campus dedicated to serving the president and the USD community.

Each spring, eight members from the incoming class who have a minimum GPA of 3.0 are selected to serve throughout their college term. A Selection Committee selects among all applicants and places consideration on availability to the club, desire and willingness to serve the University of San Diego, leadership ability, dedication, reliability and great enthusiasm.
