The Holiday Luncheon is a tradition for the UWA, held each December at an elegant downtown location, most recently the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. The Luncheon is an opportunity to celebrate the holiday season with colleagues and family in a festive setting, and is always a truly memorable occasion.
Cruising for Scholarships
The most popular and successful fundraisers over the years have been the UWA scholarship cruises. Since 1992, the UWA has sponsored cruises to exotic and historic ports around the world and raised thousands of dollars for scholarships. Cruises have taken us to Alaska, Australia and New Zealand, the Caribbean, Mexico, the Panama Canal, Scandinavia and Russia, and Tahiti. We have circled the Mediterranean and Western Europe, from Istanbul to Athens, Athens to Barcelona, Barcelona to Copenhagen.
Everyone is welcome to cruise with us: the more people we have, the more dollars we earn for scholars!
The UWA serves the university and its students by providing volunteer ushers for the Undergraduate Honors Convocation each year, and hostesses for the reception following the ceremony. This event recognizes SFSU honor students and provides an opportunity for family and friends to celebrate these students' outstanding achievements. In recognition of our role as host of the Convocation, the UWA President sits on stage at the ceremony each year with the SFSU President, deans, and other dignitaries.
A variety of events are offered each year, in an effort to provide social and educational opportunities to enlighten and entertain all tastes and fit every budget. We sponsor guided walks of the city and museums, on- and off-campus theatre parties, luncheons and dinners. And, we are always open to suggestions for new ideas. Please contact us if you have a good idea or want to become more involved in the University Women's Association. We welcome your input, and look forward to seeing you at upcoming events!
