College Club is comprised of members from 40 surrounding northern New Jersey communities who are college graduates committed to making possible an advanced education for many young women through a grants-in-aid program and a student loan fund. Founded in 1913 by a group of young college graduates who hoped to fund a woman’s college, the club has provided over 3.5 million dollars in grants and loans to women for their education.
