Probably depends a bit on the partner :-)

Wife/Husband - definitely (if they are interested and comfortable going, which I hope they would be)

GF/BF - depends on how serious you are. You don't want someone you are not going to stick for long change your influence your decision long term

Same Sex Partner - it is probably fine and almost the same as two buckets above but you don't want the most memorable thing about you being your orientation and people tend to notice/focus on these things, so I would introduce/bring them after you had a chance to establish your reputation and feel comfortable in the group.

Ultimately the choice is yours if you are not married. The choice is theirs if you are :-D

I will be bringing my GF (hopefully soon to be fiancée). She will be moving to New Haven as well so it just made sense for her to come to Welcome Weekend.

Great, thanks. My BF won't be moving with me the first year, so it's less straightforward. But, he'll be there a lot and likely moving there in year two so I think it would be good for him to come as well.

Back when I attended, my GF joined me in traveling from Europe as it made us more comfortable diving into a long-distance relationship. She had a great time and spent some time with a diverse group of partners, ranging from GF/BF to same sex partners to present-day and future wives and husbands. So fully agree with all of the below, except for saying that the "Same Sex Partner" section remark is true for all categories - noone gets singled out for who they bring.

Bring whoever you want of importance to you and your bschool decision. You want them to feel comfortable too if they're going to hang around you and your new friends for the next 2 years. They'll have a chance to meet other partners too (husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, super good friends, everyone's welcome).

Off topic, but is the Partners Club open to people living outside New Haven? My gf will be living in NYC and has expressed interest since she will be around plenty of weekends.

I can't imagine the rules are hard and fast for the social aspect of the club, but just wondering if anyone has perspective on that.

Great question. The partners club is open to all partners (married, not married, kinda sorta a thing) -- as long as you consider the person your partner, everyone's welcome. This is regardless of sex, gender, orientation, age, location, etc, etc.

@blackcoffee - Your gf will be in great company. There are a lot of partners in the general DC to Boston region due to proximity so they'll have chances to come to campus ANd they'll also hang out together without you all who have to be in school! When I was at SOM the partners in Boston and NYC were super active and they'd all hang out and make us jealous haha
