YDS Graduate Fun Week!

Come for one event, come for all, just come help us celebrate the achievements of our fellow students! As always, all are welcome to these events. Bring your families, your friends, your arch nemesis. Sponsored by YDS 2009 Class Officers!

Movie Night/Make Your Graduation Attire

Stop by the Common Room at 3 PM to make your individualized graduation gear to wear at Commencement downtown. In years past it's been halos on the cap, this year we're planning on making wings. We provide the supplies, you bring your hands and imagination.

Then let's watch a movie at sunset (8 PM). We'll be watching Slumdog Millionaire (Slumdunder Mifflinaire?), with informative remarks before starting by film student Sean McAvoy. Bring beverages, bring families and friends. Pizza provided. LOCATION CHANGE: We'll be in RSV, so meet us there at 8!

WEDNESDAY: Beach Day/Karaoke at GPSCY

Spend the day on a beautiful beach with your fellow students, families and friends! We leave from the YDS parking lot at 11 AM for the Hammonasset Beach State Park. Pack a lunch, your frisbee and your swimsuit for an afternoon in the sun.

Email me ( if you're planning on attending or if you can drive.

After soaking up the sun, head out to GPSCY for a night of Karaoke. We'll have the back room reserved for singing shenanigans, and if we're lucky, someone's going to do Journey. Bring your ID and Yale ID for admission.


Tonight we head out to the local lanes! Put on your polyester and impress everyone with your 7th grade bowling skills. If you need a ride, meet us at YDS at 7 PM to ride together, otherwise meet us there. Bowling alley TBD, open to suggestions.

FRIDAY: Graduation Rehersal and Make Your Own Attire/BBQ

Practice makes perfect, so join us on the Quad at 10:30 AM to hear all about the various ceremonies and practice your "shake with the right hand, reach with the left." There will be food afterwards, so why not? Also afterwards, we'll have materials set up so you can make your wings for graduation if you haven't done so already.

Then join us at 5:30 for a cookout on the Knoll (grassy area between the div school and apartments). We'll have the usual - burgers, vegiburgers, hot dogs, soda, beer and fun. If your family's in town already, bring them and introduce them to Dale (he'll never forget them, so it's a good test for the future).
