THE NEWS

  • The Yale Tomorrow conclusion celebration, held this past Saturday, gave donors who returned the campus the opportunity to visualize, literally, the impact of their gifts to the University.
  • When the dust from the primaries settled, many familiar characters in the city’s politics had been ousted — notably 20-year incumbent and Board of Aldermen President Carl Goldfield and, closer to home, Ward 22 Alderman Greg Morehead. But in a year when an unprecedented number of candidates have registered as independents for the general election, several who fell short among Democratic voters will try their luck in November.
  • Chabad at Yale, a Jewish organization dedicated to welcoming people of all faiths, kicked off a $6 million renovation of their new building with a groundbreaking ceremony on Sunday. The new Chabad House, located at 36 Lynwood Place, is eight times larger than the current building. Construction begins next month and looks to finish by 2013.
