Yale Bulletin
and Calendar


Musical opportunities abound for students on the Yale campus -- whether playing an instrument or singing -- and some music groups welcome University employees as members.

Film, Music & Radio

Films -- both old and new, American and foreign -- are offered throughout the school year at campus sites. The Yale Medical School Film Society offers memberships that allow moviegoers admission to the film screenings throughout the semester. (Those without memberships may also pay for admission to the individual films.) Films are presented Thursday-Sunday. Check the "Calendar" section of the Yale Bulletin & Calendar for weekly film listings or visit www.yale.edu/ymsfs/.

A new campus film society, The Cinema at the Whitney Humanities Center, run by both undergraduate and graduate students, was created as a University-wide forum for the appreciation and discussion of film. Beginning with its opening gala on Sept. 2, the Cinema will present 35mm films on the big screen, ranging from the experimental to the classic to the popular. Two feature-length films will be shown each Friday, at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. The screenings are free and open to the public. For more information, contact miye.bromberg@yale.edu.

Films are also offered throughout the year by the Yale Center for British Art and the Yale University Art Gallery, and individual departments, residential colleges and programs also sponsor special film series. These are also listed on the "Calendar" pages of the Yale Bulletin & Calendar.

WYBC ofers volunteer positions in management, music, news, sports, marketing and many other areas. There is a professional staff and student management team on hand to maintain operations and train volunteers, which include Yale students and individuals from the surrounding community.

Both stations reach over 50,000 listeners every week, with WYBC-FM consistently ranking among the top radio stations in the New Haven market.
