Welcome to the YCSD

Since 1964 the Yale Club of San Diego has committed itself to bring together alumni, students, faculty, parents, and spouses of Yale College as well as the Graduate and Professional Schools. Come share the Boola Boola spirit to socialize, network, educate, and serve our community as members of Yale’s Finest Alumni in America’s Finest City.

I encourage all Yalies in the San Diego area to get involved.  The YCSD is always looking for volunteers and ideas to make the Club a more rewarding experience for you.  Please contact us at yaleclubofsandiego@gmail.com

Highlights from the 2019 YCSD Annual Brunch “Journalism in the Trump Era” 

During a picturesque and delightfully sunny San Diego city backdrop, the YCSD welcomed our guest speaker Ms. Katharine Mieszkowski ’93, senior reporter for Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting.  Her multimedia presentation introduced the audience to how traditional journalistic precepts have changed during the Trump administration affecting not only the public but also the reporting journalists.
During Q&A the audience addressed what should be done to properly recognize and hold accountable sources of media and information.  What is “fair”, “fact”, and “fake”?  Should government censorship be an option?  Should the free market be left to sort it out?  Is there another way or is this history repeating itself using different media?  Regardless of one’s opinion(s) a great discussion was had by all.  In true Yale spirit the afternoon was insightful and respectful while tackling a provocative topic.  Thanks again to Ms. Mieszkowski for visiting the YCSD.
