THE NEWS

  • The newest fraternity on campus is seeking to strengthen the Christian community and provide a social alternative to traditional Greek activities. Unlike existing campus fraternities, the new group — Beta Upsilon Chi (BYX) — will host only non-alcoholic social events and work to help Christian students at Yale develop their faith, said Victor Hicks ’15, the chapter’s founder and president. Members must be Christians.
  • Marking another step toward City Hall’s goal of creating a “college-going culture” in New Haven, city and state school officials are announcing a college preparatory and scholarship program on Wednesday, which will serve approximately 3,000 seventh grade students in New Haven, East Hartford and Waterbury. What will the program entail? Find out in tomorrow’s News.
  • The Street Outreach Worker Program, established by the city in response to rising youth gun violence in 2007, asked the Board of Aldermen’s public safety committee Tuesday night to accept their application for a $200,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Greater New Haven.
