YaleWomen trip to the San Francisco Ballet

Join a small group of YaleWomen to see a triple act performance that includes Yuri Possokhov’s uproarious Firebird, Christopher Wheeldon’s gripping Ghosts©, and the spellbinding classic, The Kingdom of the Shades from La Bayadère, Act II. We’ll plan on a drink or two afterward to discuss the performances and enjoy one another’s company! If you are interested, please contact us at to help coordinate ticket purchases. More information on the performances at:
Please visit this eventbrite page to purchase tickets.
We decided on the $65 seats ($67 with fees). If you would prefer less expensive seats (or better seats that are more expensive), I recommend purchasing them separately and then we can re-join following the performance (location TBD). Just let me know that you plan to meet up with us and I will be sure you have all the details!

A trained historian, Megan will offer a historical snapshot of Russia's imperial strategy in the Caucasus and beyond. An intelligence analyst with a passion for Russia, Shoshana will expand the dialogue to reflect on human rights and contemporary geopolitics.

Volunteer at PAWS Chicago in Chicago, IL

Volunteer at PAWS Chicago

Sign up to volunteer at PAWS Chicago Adoption Center! This service opportunity is capped at 20 volunteers, so sign up as soon as possible below.
The PAWS center is a 13,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the adoption of Chicago's homeless animals.  It is cage-free; the only cage-free facility in the Midwest.  Daily, PAWS has between 35-50 dogs in the 25 dog rooms and 50-70 cats in the 10 cat rooms. Since the Center opened in September 2007, over 15,000 dogs and cats have found forever homes.
The volunteer experience will include a brief orientation to PAWS Chicago followed by cleaning duties (folding laundry, cleaning windows or doing dishes) or miscellaneous projects (assembling adoption folders or information packets, putting together cones needed for spay/neuter surgeries, etc.). After your hard work, you will get the opportunity to socialize with a few of the homeless dogs and cats!
Because volunteers will have animal contact, rubber-soled closed-toe shoes and long pants/sleeves are a must. Volunteers should avoid wearing dangling jewelry, as well as perfume/cologne since some pets react negatively to new odors. Volunteers must be 18 years of age and are required to sign a waiver of liability.
