We are so excited to be your Branford College executive board for 2021–2022! BCC works throughout the year to organize Branford-wide events and activities. We usually have a good balance of larger events — big dances like Branford Swing and Crushes & Chaperones and courtyard celebrations like I-Day — and smaller (sometimes weirder) activities like animal husbandry trivia night, an Oscars screening party, assassins, and movie nights. We also have lots of ~food~ events! In fact, our study breaks attract the likes of rival residential colleges. The rest of the events are up to you! We welcome all suggestions, and we will help you fund/organize any events you want to host for the college.
During our weekly BCC meetings, we also often explore and envision the larger values of the Branford community. BCC plays a vital part in making Branford a fun, safe and welcoming space. That could mean debating Branford-specific issues like whether or not our dining hall should have a Senior Table, conveying our thoughts on school policy to our YCC representatives, or voicing our opinions about how to make life at Yale more enjoyable (all while enjoying delicious food).
We’re excited to see what 2021–2022 has in store, and we hope you’ll come share your ideas with us. If you’re interested in helping decide what will happen in Branford College this year, come join us in the Trumbull Room on Monday nights!
There will be spirited conversation, free food, and also maybe some productive college-council-ing. Joining BCC can be as large of a commitment as you want it to be. Whether you decide to spearhead new events or simply swing by on Monday nights is entirely up to you. BCC is ultimately an inclusive space to meet some great members of the Branford community. We hope to see you there!
