75th Anniversary Schedule

2009 marks the 75th anniversary of the Political Union’s founding, and we will be celebrating in fine style. Join eight decades of Union members for our reunion and gala weekend, October 23rd-25th, 2009.

Enjoy    toasting at Mory’s, a lavish banquet, and various party events.

Experience    presentations by Yale faculty, campus tours, keynote addresses by prominent alumni, and – for old time’s sake – a Political Union debate.

Connect    with old friends, current students, and the traditions of the Political Union.

If you would like further information about the gala weekend, or if you have programming ideas, contact Kevin Hu, the Chair of the 75th Anniversary Committee at Kevin.Hu@yale.edu.
