FebClub Emeritus 2019

February 2019

In the late 70s as a response to New Haven winters, Yale undergraduates began to hold parties every night in February. That tradition developed into FebClub Emeritus, with social gatherings for alumni of all schools and programs scheduled all over the world. There are only three rules: no speeches, no fundraising, only a party! It’s a great way to meet fellow Yalies in your area. If you’re travelling, check the FebClub Emeritus website to find one at your destination. The schedule of events will be updated, as new locations are added.
