Don’t forget that Yale Alumni College offers opportunities for engagement beyond the classroom! This past spring we took an exclusive behind the scenes tour of Grand Central Station. This semester’s outing is expected to be a special tour of Governor’s Island. Other trips have included an architectural boat tour around Manhattan and a Yale exclusive tour of the Cloisters, specially guided by two Yale Ph.D. students. All our campuses unite for these outings.
