THE NEWS

  • Beginning with the class of 2015, low income families will receive more financial aid, while those on the higher end of the income bracket will receive less. Families that earn between $130,000 and $200,000 annually will pay a greater share of tuition than they have in the past, Director of Financial Aid Caesar Storlazzi said, with the “parent contribution” rising from an average of 12 percent of annual income to 15 percent.
  • New Haven’s growing budget gap led to the elimination of sixteen New Haven Police Department officers Wednesday night. In response, nearly 250 officers took to the streets Thursday.

    This protest, which began at the NHPD headquarters on Union Ave. and ended at the foot of City Hall, represented the culmination of weeks of budget tensions that began with Mayor John DeStefano’s call to reevaluate the city’s pension plan and ended in the dismissal of 16 officers.
