Welcome to the Yale Club of Germany

What we do:

  • We connect Yalies in Germany for networking and lifelong learning activities such as Stammtisch/FebClub meetings, lectures, community service events, etc. (sometimes in cooperation with alumns from other Ivy League schools)
  • We organize social and cultural events open to the public
  • We interview German applicants to Yale
