Last Updated: Aug 09, 2017 11:31:28 am Message ID: 156192

Dear Yale Faculty, Staff, and Students,

The second annual Opening Night Ceremony Presented by Yale at the Connecticut Open tennis tournament will take place on the evening of Monday, August 21. All Yale affiliates are eligible for half-price tickets to this event using the offer code “CO17YALE,” and special Yale Shuttle service will run between central campus and the stadium throughout the evening.

If you are planning to attend the tennis on opening night, I invite you to join me for a Yale reception at 6:00 p.m., before the ceremony begins, in the court-side club overlooking center court. We will have light refreshments, musical entertainment, and some special visitors including our beloved mascot, Handsome Dan XVIII.

For more information and to register for the reception, please click here.

Opening night is a fun and festive way for us to ring in the new academic year as a university community. I hope to see you on August 21!


Peter Salovey
