The Alumni Association of the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle was founded in 1882 as the Society of the Hall in the Grove to encourage graduates to pursue lifelong learning by offering several postgraduate degrees, beginning with the Guild of the Seven Seals, while celebrating class spirit and individuality. Dedicated to preserving the mission and traditions of our hallowed society, among them knowledge, curiosity and constancy, time-tested through decades of service and still pertinent today.

To graduate from the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle requires reading 12 selections and meeting CLSC membership requirements. Currently, member registration is done at the Veranda, located on the Brick Walk between Bestor Plaza and the Ampitheater.

The Guild of the Seven Seals advances graduates at the following levels: Seven Seals, Parnassian, Olympian, & Centurion. To receive an advance degree requires registration at the CLSC veranda, between the Amphitheater and Bestor Plaza on the Brick Walk.
