What is Class Day?

Answer: 

Class Day, a Yale College tradition, takes place on Old Campus on Sunday at 2:00 p.m., and includes the awarding of academic, artistic, and athletic prizes; the celebration of undergraduates; and an address by a notable speaker. Seniors wear academic gowns with headgear of choice and process from Cross Campus to Old Campus. A colorful, informal event, Class Day lasts approximately two hours and takes place outdoors rain or shine.
