Cross Campus Celebration

Come join the Yale Community from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for a fall celebration on Cross Campus and celebrate Founders Day! Festivities will include musical entertainment, a photo booth, and remarks by President Salovey. There will also be harvest treats available.

This year, Founders Day coincides with the Chaplain’s Office celebration of  90 Years of Chaplaincy at Yale. The Chaplain’s Office will have displays and a public art installation and will be giving away seltzer water from Foxon Park,  a beverage company that was established in 1922 in East Haven, CT. 

In partnership with Niman Ranch and Chef David Kuzma of the Yale School of Management, Yale Hospitality presents the Bone-In Prosciutto contest! Head over to the Founder’s Day festivities to find the Bone-In Prosciutto table. Vote on your favorite of four prosciutto pairings - then go to Instagram to post a photo of your favorite. Niman Ranch will give a prize pack away to the two most creative photos during the day! Tag @Niman_Ranch and @yale_hospitality, and #NimanOnTheRun #FollowTheNimanLeg #YaleHospitality on Instagram and Twitter. The contest link is here.
