It is located on High Street, between Chapel and Elm, directly across from the Old Campus. The Guild is the student organization responsible for ringing the bells in Harkness Tower. It is a self-perpetuating group: each fall, the current members give lessons to freshmen and sophomores (and sometimes graduate students) on the practice carillon, and, after auditions, elect new members to the Guild. They take song requests, and they also offer tours to the Yale community!

    The tour will last 30 minutes total. There will be another tour in July as well. Open to the Yale community. Please let us know that you're coming by clicking here:

  • Join us on this classic team-oriented activity! It requires minimum or no prior knowledge of paddling skills. The Parks and Rec team of certified instructors and canoe leaders will be there to provide you with ample opportunity for learning basic paddling techniques, and for wildlife observation!

    Details:

    We’ll meet outside the Trowbridge Environmental Center, located in East Rock Park. The Parks and Rec Rangers have reserved a couple of tables close to the center for us. They will have some identifying marker saying “Parks and Rec”.

    Feel free to bring snacks, blankets, books, sports items, and comfortable clothing. We’ll have to take turns as groups of 12-13 people, so plan on bringing something enjoyable to entertain yourself with in case you need to wait for a short period of time (30 mins. max). 

    The OISS will bring a soccer ball and a (potentially) a frisbee, but more sports items are welcome. Please don’t bring valuables that are hard to keep an eye on, as there will be tons of movement at the site.

    It should be a beautiful day!

    Registration link will be provided soon. All sales final. Open to the Yale community.
