A Typical Week

Below is what a typical week with the Federalists looks like. Everyone is most welcome to attend any of our events!


Dinner with the Federalists, 5:30-7:30 pm in the Branford Pit. We gather around to talk about current events, the upcoming debate, and life.


Yale Political Union Debate, 7:30-9:30 pm. The seven parties of the YPU meet for a debate, typically featuring a prominent guest speaker.


Federalist Party Debate, 7:30-11:00 pm. This intraparty debate is the highlight of the Federalist week. We debate a resolution that divides the sentiments of the body, members give multiple speeches, and a bit of revelry ensues. After the debate we go to Yorkside for pizza and moosetrack milkshakes.


Lunch with the Federalists, 11:30 am-1:30 pm in Benjamin Franklin Dining Hall. Lunch provides a way to unwind after a long week. We talk, read the newspaper, and plan weekend adventures.
