Welcome to Morse College

Welcome to Morse College!

Dear Class of 2023,

Woo hoo! You are a MORSEL! (It’s an affectionate term that will give you a warm fuzzy feeling every time you hear it from now until the end of time!) Today is a great day in which we welcome you to the club. There is much to introduce you to and we are so excited for the gates to be thrown open in August to bring you in and start acquainting you with the Lipstick (what?), the Walrus (huh?), Handsome Dan (yes, he’s ours), the BEST food on campus (yes, really. Voted #1), the wildly awesome first-year counselors (they’ll be in touch), your new suite mates (they’ll be in touch too), and 400 other Morsels who will make up your Morse Peeps.

August 23 is the big day: Move in. And it will blow your mind! It’s Morse spirit at its finest! There is food, flag waving, crazy hooting and hollering, Morsels lugging your bags, and, ultimately, the culmination of all your hard high school work finally paying off as you walk into Durfee Hall on Old Campus as a Yale student for the first time. Don’t forget to pause and soak it in.

Three things to do now: The first is for you to plug the Post-Move In Reception at Morse House, also known as Head of College House, at 4 PM on August 23 into your calendar. Come with all the folks who drove, flew, and walked with you to campus for a bounty of delicious treats and to meet more Morsels. The second, is to give anyone who needs to send you a package this address. If you don’t use this address your package could take a very long and unfortunate detour as it tries to find you. Third, if you haven’t already, activate your NetID and Yale email account then start checking said account. This is where lots of critical info will come to you that you’ll want to be on top of.

Oh wait, there’s a fourth thing…revel in the glory of being in the college full of LOVE and HAPPINESS, Morse!


Have a great summer; we’ll be together before you know it!

Alexa…you’ll be hearing from me a lot over the next 4 years! 

Welcome from Head of College Panter-Brick
