Feb Club Emeritus is a series of parties run by volunteers held around the world for Yalies and their friends.
In 2008, a group of Yalies were bemoaning the fact that their busy lives didn’t allow them the time to hang out with their Yale College friends anymore. What they needed was a stress-free, fun way to get together. What they wanted was an uncomplicated way to kick back and relax – no matter where on the globe they were. What they built was Feb Club Emeritus.
Now, every February, Feb Club Emeritus hosts around the globe through parties. Each night of the month, there is at least one party; on most nights, there are many. From Atlanta to Zanzibar and everywhere in between, over 100 events host more than 5,000 Yalies and their guests.
Each event is different, with the location, themes and festivities designed by local hosts. Some get together in homes. Others pick restaurants or night clubs. We’ve had Feb Club parties on beaches, in deserts, on boats, in a Mongolian mine, in an embassy, and all sorts of fun and interesting places. There really are just three rules to Feb Club: no speeches, no fundraising, it’s just a party.
