The Real Estate Club is one of the largest student-run organizations on campus. Open to both graduate and undergraduate students, the club meets several times per month to learn from a variety of guests. Speakers cover a wide range of topics including the debt markets, development, REITs, green building, and institutional trends. In addition, the club sponsors two national trips each year, usually in association with alumni events or industry conferences by organizations such as the Urban Land Institute (ULI).
The Real Estate Club organizes social and educational events for both graduate and undergraduate students interested in the field of real estate. The club holds informal meetings in which real estate professionals discuss their particular professional focus and introduce their firm.
In addition, each semester the club organizes weekend field trips which include tours of various real estate projects, presentations by real estate firms, and receptions with local alumni. Finally, the club assists members in obtaining internship and permanent positions through a resume book, an alumni job survey, and job listings.
