Messages from the Dean

Class Night

September 1, 2017

Dear sophomores, juniors, and seniors,

As First-Year Orientation comes to a close on Monday evening, we would like to enlist your help in our annual tradition of Class Night.

Class Night began last year as a way to mark the end of orientation and as a bookend to Class Day. It is a chance for first-year students to hear from Dean Chun, the YCC, engage in the Yale tradition of “Bright College Years,” and to continue forming bonds with their residential college as well as their entire class.
