Yale School of Management Alumni and up to one guest are invited to join current Yale SOM students at a pre-game tailgate hosted by Yale SOM’s student life committee at this year’s Yale Harvard game on Saturday, November 18th. While “The Game” itself begins at noon, Yale SOM alumni are invited to start pre-game festivities alongside current students and fellow alumni at the student-hosted tailgate starting at 9:00 a.m. Located near the field, attendees will receive four (4) drink tickets redeemable for beer, wine, hard seltzer, non-alcoholic beverages, or a mocktail. This celebratory and convivial pre-game event will feature lawn games, a DJ, and Bears BBQ catering. Current Yale SOM students, alumni, partners, and guests are all invited to join this special event fostering community and connection. 

Registrants will receive a “ticket wristband” for entry/exit at the tailgate for each ticket purchased. Advanced registration is required as ticket wristbands will not be available for purchase onsite. Lost or misplaced wristbands will not be replaced and without a ticket wristband, there will be no entry, no exceptions. Yale SOM alumni who register for this event will receive their wristbands in the mail (at the mailing address provided at registration) from the Yale SOM Alumni Relations Office in advance of the event. 

Registration for this event does not include tickets to the Yale Harvard game itself or parking onsite. Additional information about where attendees can purchase tickets for the game and onsite parking is included below. Space for this event is limited and registration closes on Wednesday, November 8th. We hope you’ll join this Yale SOM student life committee event for the entire Yale SOM community.
