Students and Alumni of Yale (STAY) 

What Is STAY?

STAY is all about student-alumni relations!

Partnering with on- and off-campus partners such as the Yale Alumni Association, Office of Development, Dwight Hall, the Office of Career Strategy – and even other colleges – STAY hosts events and supports channels to unleash student-alumni time and talent, to transfer wisdom, and to form long-lasting, meaningful student-alumni relationships.   

How Can I Get Involved?

STAY welcomes alumni and students who want to transform student-alumni relations at Yale. Here’s what you can do to get involved:  

  • Volunteer to mentor a Yale student.
  • Suggest a speaker for a STAY Alumni Tea, during which alumni share their life and career stories with current students.  
  • Nominate candidates for the Yale Jefferson Award for Public Service.
  • Suggest topics or venues for STAY-sponsored on- or off-campus events – or host an event yourself!
  • Organize, or serve as a panelist, for a STAY-sponsored event.
  • Attend a STAY-sponsored event.

Yale-Jefferson Award for Public Service
