What’s a good date?

clock on Harkness Tower at YaleWhen’s the best time to party? Anytime! Especially in the summer.

Any time in mid to late summer is a great time to throw a party, but there are few holidays to hang it on. Hence Camp Yale Emeritus.

Any day from mid-July through August to mid-September will work splendidly. Some like to start early in mid June, others are still partying on October 1st. But if you are holding a send-off party for newly admitted Yalies or returning Yale students, mid-August may prove best (don’t forget to invite the YSC volunteers who interviewed them). On the other hand, if you’re trying to catch the last rays of summer, try September after Labor Day.
