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 β€œto 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.
