Yale Summer Events

You are here

Over the summer, students in Yale College and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences have the opportunity to connect with peers and Yale alums. Each Spring, OCS hosts a location survey in the Yale Career Link, through which students can indicate where they will be over the summer and if they would like to connect with Yale alums in that area. OCS will then send your name and email to the local Yale Alum Club and you will be included in any events hosted over the summer.
