Jenny Investment Club (JIC)

The Jenny Investment Club is a student-managed stock and bond portfolio (currently valued over $4,000,000) the proceeds of which are used for student scholarships (over $300,000 since 1986). This is real money, part of the College’s endowment. The concept of having such a student-organized and operated fund was pioneered at Wooster in the 1950s. We’ve been featured in Sylvia Porter’s Money Magazine, Crain’s Business Publications, and even in Glamour! Paul Harvey has praised the group twice.

Several colleges and universities have tried to imitate us, but their groups usually invest only in a “paper” portfolio or operate as part of a course. We think that Wooster’s original idea was the best for us. Any member of The College of Wooster community is eligible to become a member to learn about investing and financial markets. Meetings are Wednesdays at 6 p.m. in the Faculty Lounge of Lowry Center. Bring your dinner and participate!
