Floating dance parties
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
