YCC plans adventures

Feeling adventurous? A new initiative by the Yale College Council will give Yalies a chance to attend free trips and activities this spring, from Broadway shows and ice-skating in New York to dinner at popular New Haven restaurants.

The initiative, called Eli Adventures, aims “to give people opportunities to meet others who they might otherwise never meet,” the YCC wrote in an e-mail announcing the program.

Students can sign up for trips online subject to a lottery system. Those selected to attend will be notified by e-mail, and will have up to 24 hours to decline or accept the offer. This semester, each student may participate in only one trip.

The first Eli Adventure will be a trip to Broadway musical Wicked on Thursday, Jan. 27.
