Eating clubs

The majority of upperclassmen at Princeton University take their meals in one of eleven eating clubs, which are an amalgamation of dining halls and Greek-letter fraternities.

As of Summer 2003, Princeton undergraduates had their choice of eleven eating clubs. Six clubs, namely University Cottage Club[?], Cap and Gown Club[?], The Ivy Club[?], Tiger Inn[?], Princeton Tower Club[?], and most recently, Campus Club[?] are selective, and choose their members through a process called "bicker[?]".

Five clubs, namely Cloister Inn[?], Princeton Charter Club[?], Colonial Club[?], Quadrangle Club[?], and Terrace F. Club[?], are non-selective. Their members are chosen through a lottery.

All of the clubs have been coeducational since 1991, which is the consequence of a lawsuit filed by Sally Frank[?] against Ivy, Cottage, and Tiger Inn in 1979.
