Part of a free conference series put on by Action Institute, we invite all CU at Yale members to apply for a free ticket to this conference. Here is the summary from the Action Institute website:
One mark of impoverished or autocratic societies is a lack of inviolable property rights. Conversely, all free societies have developed schemes of property ownership for individuals and institutions. "Toward a Free and Virtuous Society: Life, Liberty, and Property" is a conference that provides an in-depth, interdisciplinary examination of private property as a necessary component of a society marked by religious, economic, and political liberty.
Space is limited and participants will be accepted on a rolling basis. All accepted applicants will receive lodging, conference meals, conference materials, and a travel stipend from the Acton Institute.

See you on Friday!
Just before classes begin, we’ll be making the trip to Camp Wightman in Griswold CT, in order to reconnect with teammates and friends, prepare and plan an array of events for reaching the incoming frosh class, and build the fabric of our community through worship, prayer and recreation.
