[Non-YCLA Event] The Yale Humanist Community's End of the Year Reception
   

Please Join Us in Celebrating Our First Year at Yale!

It has been a great year and we have so much more planned! 

We've had a enormous range of speakers, from Pulitzer Prize nominee Susan Jacoby to Rutgers Asst Humanist Chaplain David Yaden.  Later this Spring Semester we'll be hosting world renowned Primatologist Frans de Waal, plan to help kick off the new SMART Recovery program locally, and will be co-hosting several other events with other Yale and New Haven organizations.

This April 10th we hope you will join our Board of Directors, Yale Faculty Advisers, Student Leaders, and other Special Guests in remembering our recent achievements and announcing our future plans. 

Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM
