Students and Alumni of Yale (STAY) 

What Is STAY?

STAY logoSTAY 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, the Yale College Council, the Graduate and Professional Student Senate – and even other institutes of higher education – STAY hosts events and supports channels to unleash student-alumni time and talent, to transfer career and life wisdom, and to form long-lasting, meaningful student-alumni relationships.   

How Can I Get Involved?

STAY welcomes students and alumni who want to transform student-alumni relations at Yale. Whether you're a student or an alum, here’s what you can do to get involved:  

  • Attend our biweekly gatherings at Rose Alumni House, home to the YAA, for food, facts, and fun.
  • If you're an alum, volunteer to mentor a Yale student. If you're a student, get advice from a Yale alum.
  • Get early access to Careers, Life, and Yale events.
  • Interact with Yalies at student-alumni events, both on and off campus.
  • Suggest a speaker for a STAY Alumni Tea, during which alumni share their life and career stories with current students.  
  • Suggest topics or venues for STAY-sponsored events.
  • Nominate candidates for the Yale Jefferson Award for Public Service.
