Interest Groups - Very Interesting Interest GroupsBelow you will find the list of University Women’s Club Interest Groups which offer everything from Antiques to Yoga. Perhaps Hiking, Gourmet Cooking, or International Friendship sparks your interest? What about Book Discussions, Bridge or the Nation’s oldest and most popular program of citizen education in world affairs: Great Decisions! That’s just a few of the Interest Groups available.
Oh, and… if you are passionate about something that is not currently offered, feel free to start your own Interest Group! You can do this by contacting Interest Group Chair.

Members of the University Club are welcome to join as many Interest Groups as they wish! Generally speaking, the Interest Groups begin in the fall each year and run through the spring, with a few operating year ‘round. University Club Members may sign up at the Annual Welcome Reception in September or at the Fall Luncheon hosted by the Women’s Club. You may also sign up by directly contacting the chairperson of any particular group.

Current Interest Group Members please note: If you have signed up for an Interest Group but not yet joined the UClub, please contact UClub Manager, Svetla Vladeva at (812) 855-1325 or via email at: for membership information.
