Club membership provides a ready setting for social and profession–related networking. This is especially the case over the summer when the Club can help undergrads foster better relationships with alumni as well their collegiate peers, while also reaping other membership benefits, such as access to our 150+ Reciprocal clubs, a congenial setting for end-of-the-workday conversation, and access to our well-equipped Gym (included in membership cost).
This membership is available to full-time rising seniors age 21 and older. Summer members have full access to the Club, Palestra Fitness Center, including squash courts at the Yale Club and any Reciprocal Club. Membership is from May 1 to August 31. This costs a flat $ 200 plus sales tax. Though members can choose to extend their membership for a year at no additional cost, some prefer only to join for the Summer.
Note: If an undergraduate, you would be a rising senior and if a graduate student, you would be entering your last year.“
