Inclusiveness, camaraderie, participation—these are Tuck traditions. From club meetings to student-run symposia to volunteering in the wider community, you'll find ways to get involved at Tuck. And when they're not studying or recruiting, Tuckies sure know how to have a good time. Below is a sampling of student-run social clubs that bring people together to do just that, whether you’re a seasoned wine connoisseur or just want to unwind on the dance floor.

Tuck Band: Tuck isn’t just about financial models and market sizing – for some of us, rock n’ roll is an equally important part of the curriculum.  The Tuck Band is open to all of the musicians in the Tuck community, and is a staple of the Tuck social scene.  We play at numerous events throughout the year ranging from major on-campus parties such as Admitted Students Weekend and Halloween to gigs at local venues like Salt Hill Pub and even the occasional house party.  The Band has tackled everything from Miley Cyrus to Lynyrd Skynyrd to the Notorious B.I.G., and is already getting psyched to take the stage next year!

Adam Smith Society: The Adam Smith Society is a student-run organization that explores the links between the economy, government and society through debate and discussion. The group invites noted business luminaries to Tuck’s campus to speak on a variety of topics that are of interest to the community.  The Society aims to inspire business students to think about their own responsibility in seeing our economic system endure as well as stimulate discussion about how to improve the economy and society.  There are multiple chapters of the Adam Smith Society across the United States at other prestigious universities and the Society offers a strong network of current and future business leaders to help inspire Tuck students to achieve their potential within the business world.  During the academic year our group hosts a speaker series as well as social events. 

Tuck Wine Society: Tuckies want to have familiarity and confidence with wine lists, especially in social business contexts. The Wine Society provides opportunities for Tuck students to enjoy and learn more about the wide world of wine. We organize events that couple wine education with camaraderie. Held once per term, Wine Night is a chance to taste many different wines in a fun, social setting. Small-group tastings offer a tasting line-up and discussion with an assigned group for an evening.
