Legend has it that Feb Club started in the ‘70s, that it ended in the late ‘90s and that it was resurrected in 2006. Each year, a student, group of students or organization would be handed down the solemn task of organizing 28 (29) parties around the Yale campus, and spreading the word among the student population. In the early days, there was no e-mail, no web pages, no Facebook.... so word of the parties, their locations, hosts and themes were truly spread by word of mouth. Feb Club parties ranged from simple get-togethers in a dorm room to elaborate choreographed affairs involving multiple hosts and locations. In 1987, for example, parties ranged from 18 holes at Timothy Dwight College (i.e. 18 rooms, 18 themes), to a highfalutin affair at the Yale Yacht Club, to Valentine's Day red “special” jello at Zeta Psi, to a Manhattan road trip, to the annual upside-down kamakaze tradition at Morse College.
Community leaders are sought to judge for the upcoming Texas DECA State Career Development Conference on February 21st at the Sheraton Downtown Dallas hotel.
This year, we have over 4,200 high school students competing across 50 different competitive events, and we need business and industry leaders like yourself to evaluate the students’ performances and presentations. We have two shifts available: Role Play judges are needed from 7:00 am – 12:15 pm and Prepared event judges are needed from 7:00 am – 4:00 pm. We do provide meals, complimentary parking, and a thank you gift for your time, but the real reward is the students receiving an amazing experience and showing off their skills and acquired knowledge to volunteers like yourself.
I hope that you can join us in two weeks, and that you share this opportunity with your personal and professional networks. Signing up is incredibly easy – simply fill out the short form located at www.texasdeca.org/judge. There you will select which timeframe works best for you and which industry/events you would like to be paired with.
These students are tomorrow’s leaders. We have over 14,000 students and advisors as part of our organization across Texas, including 38% of our students preparing to graduate this Spring. Our students are geared to business, marketing, hospitality, finance, and entrepreneurship; however, many continue to pursue degrees in law, medicine, and education to name a few.
Dear Yale Friend,
I invite you to join the third in our series of quarterly presidential conference calls for the 2017-18 academic year. As with previous calls, this will be an opportunity to hear from President Salovey directly on a range of topics and for him to answer your questions.
Date: Friday, February 16, 2018
Time: 4:00-5:00 p.m. (EST)
Please plan to call in no later than 3:55 p.m. so that we can begin promptly.
To register, please click here.
Upon registration, you will be given the toll-free dial-in telephone number, the registration code, and a PIN. You will also be able to submit a question for President Salovey. He will try to answer as many questions submitted by February 8 as possible. At the request of many participants, we will also open up the line for live questions during the latter part of this call so it is possible he may not get to all pre-submitted questions.
I hope you will be able to join us on February 16.
Warm regards,Joan E. O’Neill
Vice President for Alumni Affairs & Development

After her remarks she will be delighted to answer questions from the floor.

For over 25 years, Vogel Alcove has provided free quality child development services for Dallas’ youngest victims of poverty: homeless children 6 weeks to 5 years old. Vogel Alcove is the only free comprehensive early childhood education program in the city of Dallas whose primary focus is to provide free childcare and case management for children and their families residing at 18 local emergency shelters, domestic violence shelters, and housing programs.
This is the perfect family volunteer activity - all ages can help!
Our activity will be focused on supplying and building “Bye-Bye Bags,” snack bags given to the children as they leave for the day when we know that it may be quite some time before they are able to get back to the shelter or their transitional apartment and have a meal. We can also use these when we have families just drop in with hungry kids in tow and when we know one of our families will not be receiving dinner.
The Importance of Cultural and Religious Literacy: The Case of Islam
The Harvard Club of Dallas warmly invites the Yale community to attend this event featuring Ali Asani, Harvard Professor of Indo-Muslim and Islamic Religion and Cultures.
Our world is marked by difference. The inability to engage with and understand these differences has led to polarizations, tensions and conflict in many societies. In recent decades, these conflicts have been particularly acute and tragic when they are framed in religious terms. Illiteracy about the nature of religion has led to political climates that are crippling intellectually and threatening to the pluralistic fabric of society. Looking at Islam as a case study, this talk will discuss the importance of promoting literacy about religion as one of the essential pre-requisites for the well-being of societies and the project of democracy globally.
Local Yale Alumnus and SMU Art Professor is opening an exhibition this Saturday, May 6 through June 10 at the Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden in Dallas. You are invited to the opening reception this weekend and the artist's talk about his works on May 20.
Barnaby Fitzgerald divides his time between teaching and painting in the United States, and painting and video work in Togo, West Africa, and Umbria in central Italy. He has shown in Italy, France, the United Kingdom and New York City. Currently he is represented by Meredith Long & Co., Houston, and Valley House Gallery in Dallas, Texas.
In 1979 Fitzgerald was a fellow of the Camargo Foundation in Cassis, France, where he painted and drew Provençal landscapes for a year. In 1985 he won an award from the Ingram Merrill Foundation, New York City.
“To enter Barnaby Fitzgerald’s Dallas studio is to enter a world of astonishing beauty, …” writes Frederick Turner, Founders Professor of Arts and Humanities at the University of Texas at Dallas. “In Barnaby Fitzgerald, the Texas sensibility is wonderfully married to the classical European tradition back through the Renaissance to classical Rome and Greece.”
Fitzgerald’s work is in several private collections and in the Yale Art Gallery print collection, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and other museums.
The Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies will have and exhibit at Earth Day Texas at Fair Park this coming April 21-23.

Alex Golubiewski, SY '11, together with Caleb Smith, SY '11, have produced a film entitled The Spearhead Effect, which has been fortunate enough to be selected for multiple screenings at the Dallas International Film Festival. Academy Award nominee Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life) executive produced the film.
Alex and Caleb have been working together on various projects since their days at Saybrook and the Yale football team, and Caleb has had success acting in film and television (ABC's The Catch; Modern Family), but The Spearhead Effect represents the first joint project to garner any attention. Together with a number of friends and colleagues, including a few Yalies, they were able to gather up what resources they could and craft an intelligent thriller that focuses less on special effects and more on sparking the viewers' imaginations. They would be honored to share this achievement with the greater Yale community.
They would appreciate your support by way of attending one of their film's screenings, either on Thursday, April 6, at 9:30pm, or, preferably, on Friday, April 7, at 10:00pm, both screenings at the Angelika Film Center 5321 E. Mockingbird Lane, Suite 230. A link to the tickets page follows: https://secure.dallasfilm.org/festivalfeature/id/24796391416828466

The Yale Club of Dallas Annual Dinner will be a reception of wine and hors d'oeuvres at 6pm followed by a dinner at 7pm prepared by the Dallas Petroleum Club and features a talk by Yale Law School Sterling Professor Akhil Reed Amar. Prof. Amar's presentation is entitled:
“The Constitution at a Crossroads”
This year, for the first time in our lifetimes — and for one of the few times in modern history — all four major federal institutions of power are in play, electorally speaking. Come January 2017, Democrats could control the House, Senate, Presidency, and Supreme Court; or Republicans could control all four; or we could continue with divided government. We are sure to have a new president, and the Supreme Court could shift away from Republican control for the first time in nearly half a century.
In this Yale Club of Dallas lecture, Sterling Professor of Law & Political Science Akhil Amar, one of Yale’s most popular professors, will discuss the constitutional significance of all this, with particular emphasis on Texas’s role in our modern constitutional conversation.
Tickets are available for Yale Alumni and the Yale community. There are prices for graduates in the past decade, Alumni who graduated before 2006, and couples.
The cost includes parking, hors d'oeuvres, wine and beverages, 3 course dinner and presentation.

Volunteer at the Vogel Alcove or St. Philips Community Center
Launched in 2009, the global Yale Day of Service is one of a number of service opportunities for Yale alumni to lead by sharing their time and talents to make a difference.
Many alumni give back by working in the non-profit sector, sitting on boards of foundations and organizations, serving at the highest levels of government, becoming elected officials, volunteering for Yale, and sharing time, experience and energy with volunteer community projects. And the Yale Day of Service is a chance for alumni around the world to come together on one day to celebrate this tradition of service. On the Yale Day of Service, alumni and their families and friends work side by side to make communities better because Yale alumni live there. Many Yale Day of Service projects are part of ongoing service efforts by local Yale Clubs or other Yale alumni organizations, a good number of which have grown out of a first Yale Day of Service effort. The Yale Day of Service is a wonderful way for members of the Yale community to meet and reconnect with alumni who share this commitment to giving back. And for many alumni, the program provides the opportunity to share this value with their children (and grandchildren) through example – and fun! – as they work together on projects where they live.
