Communiversity Day Set for April 25 at Yale

Communiversity Day 1998, on Saturday, April 25, 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. on Yale University’s Old Campus, High Street, is a free, public festival that will be highly visual and camera-friendly. Nearly 2,000 people are expected this year.

More than 20 campus groups will host booths giving children a chance to try beadmaking, cupcake decorating, hands-on science experiments, pie throwing and a host of other activities. Student vocal and dance groups, live bands, storytelling, improvisation and children’s theater will be featured through the day.

An inflated MoonBounce, giant slide and dunk tank will provide physical humor. Local businesses will showcase their wares at a vendor bazaar.

In conjunction with Communiversity Day, Jumpstart’s second annual Children Across New Haven will take place on the New Haven Green, with a “learning fair” for children, ages 3-6, and their families.

Started in the early 1980s, Communiversity Day has grown into an annual festival hosted by Yale students to celebrate the friendship between the University and the Greater New Haven community.

Coordinated by the members of Alpha Phi Omega (APO), a national service fraternity, Communiversity Day is sponsored by JumpStart, Dwight Hall, the Ethnic Community Race Council (ECRC) and the Office of New Haven Affairs.
