Yale Wiki had a snafu with the web host a while back, and it was down for quiiiite a while.

Curious about What Happened? Or who runs the wiki?

You'll probably notice some things that are out of date. Help fix it?

Have a NetID? Then you already have a YaleWiki editor account :)

Where

Local venues

  • Toad's
  • Box 63
    • According to this article in the YDN, Box 63 offers a "milder, Yale-only setting compared to Toad’s louder, more crowded parties."

Frats and a capella houses

  • Profiles of frats (get frats to write their own: incentivizes participation, and we can accept some editorial bias)

Residential college parties

  • Safety Dance (Silliman)
    • Annual 80's-themed dance in Commons that happens mid-October.
    • The biggest party at Yale. Over 2000 people regularly in attendance.
    • CANCELLED as of October 2012 according to the YDN[1]
  • Inferno (Pierson)
    • Annual Halloween party. It's the most important party and has the highest budget of any other Yale event.

Spring Fling

One of the highlights of your Yale experience. Every April, Old Campus is turned into a mosh pit as the Spring Fling Committee and the YCC bring in a big name act. For 2012, the Spring Fling headliner will be T-Pain.

Safety guidelines

Register
  • Official Yale policy is that parties should be registered at your Master's Office at least 48 hours in advance. Not doing so risks your party getting shut down.
  • You can find the party registration forms on your college website.
Water
  • If you have alcohol, also put out water. Have a pitcher or two and keep them full.
Healthy choices
  • The legal drinking age in Connecticut is twenty-one.
    • If you do drink, eat a big dinner and drink water throughout the evening.
Emergencies
  • In case of an emergency, call for help. See: Emergencies.
  • If you are worried about walking home late at night:
    • Use the Nighttime Campus Shuttle (formerly known as Minibus). For off-route pickups, call 203-432-6330.
    • Request a Yale Security walking escort. Call 203-432-WALK.
