Michael Herbert ’16: Freshman Frat-Star(ter)
A freshman from a suburb of Denver, Colorado, Michael Herbert ’16 first stepped onto campus as a student last fall. In the middle of his first semester, Herbert began thinking of re-establishing a chapter of the Chi Psi fraternity at Yale, which dissolved in 1963. Chi Psi at Yale is now an officially registered fraternity — in fact, the only registered fraternity on campus — and boasts 26 new members, including 4 juniors. How did a freshman start up a successful Greek organization in less than a year? What are the next steps? Herbert tells WEEKEND how he initially got interested in the idea of starting a new fraternity, and how he hopes the organization will develop.
