Message from the Yale Club



Dear fellow DC area Yale alumni,

I hope you and your loved ones are doing as well as possible during these uncertain times. As we all work to define our "new normals", we wanted you to know that our Board is exploring new ways for our community to virtually engage, connect, and serve. In this time of planning, we welcome all ideas for virtual event types, formats, topics, and speakers. I encourage everyone to join us as we embark on this new virtual reality. It will be a learning experience for many of us, but I hope we will be able to make lemonade out of lemons and create new, innovative, virtual offerings that will benefit our community for years to come. Yale groups and alumni across the country have already initiated several virtual events this month, which we've included for you below.


We have some trying times ahead of us, but I am confident our community will rise to the challenge. Please take care of yourself. I hope to see you online soon!


Stay well,


Yvette Soliz Rivers, Yale College '96
