Welcome Reception for New Admits, Scholars, Interns and New Arrivals
Saturday, June 27th, 3-4pm
Please join us in welcoming the newly accepted students and scholars (including undergrads, graduate and professional students and Yale World Fellow) entering Yale this fall, as well as new Beijing arrivals, the Richard U. Light Fellows and Bulldog in Beijing Interns. The newly elected officers of the Yale Club of Beijing will also be present for a meet and greet. We look forward to meeting new members and all those who are interested in participating in the Club this year. YCB’s primary charity, Project Kickstart (PKS), will also be represented by the organization’s leaders as well as current students and alumni of the program.
Alumni: do come out to meet those who are entering your chosen field and give them your words of wisdom.
Immediately following this reception, Dr. Catherine Bond Hill, President of Vassar College and Yale Corporation Alumni Fellow will deliver a speech entitled American Higher Education and the Liberal Arts. This event is jointly sponsored by the Yale Club of Beijing, Yale Center Beijing and Vassar College alumni. Please see below for details. You’re welcome to join that talk as well.
