When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.
Located in a Gothic-style building on York Street in the heart of Yale University’s Old Campus, Gryphon’s Pub has been run by the school’s Graduate & Professional Student Center since the 1970s. This members-only club is managed by Yale graduate students and features several lounges, a big-screen TV, pool tables and nightly drink specials. Membership dues, which were $20 in 2014, are considered a bargain, given the $2–$4 cover charge (which members are not required to pay) and the frequency with which students tend to find themselves at Gryphon’s!
