This Saturday: pizza party at the
Haltzel-Haas residence in Frankfurt

Pizza!For the Frankfurt branch of the Yale family in Germany this month, instead of our usual 4th-Friday-of-the-month restaurant stammtisch, we will be meeting this Saturday evening, March 24, at the home of long-time faithful Yale Clubber Rebecca Haltzel-Haas (Yale College ’90, Timothy Dwight). Rebecca and her family — husband Rudolf and sons Nathaniel (9), Jacob (6) and Elijah (5 months) — are kindly opening up their home for a pizza party. The time will be 6:45 p.m., and everyone is invited. We’ll split the cost of the pizza, and anybody who wants to bring a bottle of wine or other beverage will be a hero!

The Haltzel-Haases are is just two blocks west of the Alte Oper, and even closer to Fidelio, the wine pub where the Yale Club meets most months. The Alte Oper U-Bahn station is on the U6 and U7 lines, one stop west of Hauptwache. For their H-Hs’ address and directions (which we have e-mailed to Yale Club members but prefer not to post on the Internet), please check with Bob Bonds ’71, tel. 0170-9720-168, or send him an e-mail.





A warm welcome to Diana Kahle (Yale College ’06), who graduated last May after majoring in Sociology and Russian and is now doing her Master’s in translation in Germersheim, near Speyer and Mannheim.




Campus mapExplore the Yale campus, on line

A state-of-the-art interactive map that has just been added to the Yale University website allows you to explore the campus and zoom in on points of interest.

You can select any area of the campus and then go in closer for greater detail. You can also click on almost any building on the map and see a photo of it and a list of the Yale programs that go on inside it, with links to their websites. It’s fun!

The new map is available at http://business.yale.edu/map.

To contribute, please arrange a bank transfer (Überweisung) to the Yale Club’s account.
