Beyond the MBA Classroom: Lounging at Yale’s Gryphon’s Pub - mbaMission

Gryphon’s Pub

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 Graduate and Professional Student Center at Yale (known more commonly as simply GPSCY) since the early 1970s. This members-only club is managed by Yale graduate students and features several lounges, a big-screen TV, pool tables, and regular drink specials. Membership dues ($20) are considered a bargain, given the $2–$5 cover charge (which members are not required to pay) and the frequency with which students tend to find themselves at Gryphon’s!
