Class Day, a Yale College tradition, takes place on Old Campus on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. It includes the awarding of academic, artistic, and athletic prizes; the celebration of undergraduates; and an address by a notable speaker. Seniors wear academic gowns and headgear of choice and process from Cross Campus to Old Campus. The celebrated author Chimamanda Adichie is the 2019 Class Day speaker.
