  • Recruitment Drive @ Georgia Institute of Technology!

    Georgia Tech YAL kicked off our semester last week with our first recruitment drive for the semester! We came, we saw, we passed out Constitutions, we started a buzz on campus. While Spring semester recruitment is usually slower than Fall, we still did fairly well on sign-ups. We had solid conversations with students as they …

  • Ashland University Involvement Fair

    The involvement fair at the beginning of this semester was a complete success. Our table hosted a number reading materials, free books, merchandise, and a political compass quiz. I had the opportunity to have political conversations with many of the incoming freshmen while they took the quiz. It was nice to hear about what the …

  • University of Wisconsin-Madison Membership Drive

    Every fall, the University of Wisconsin-Madison hosts a two day student organization fair at the Kohl Center (our venue for basketball and hockey). We filed into the Kohl Center with over 900 other student organizations and eagerly awaited the crowds of (mostly) freshman to come see what YAL is all about. Both days, we collected …

  • University of Wisconsin- Whitewater Involvement Fair

    YAL-Whitewater had a great start to the year with an amazing first meeting and a fantastic table at the involvement fair. Our table was covered in constitutions that we had to keep restocking because of the multitudes of people asking for them. We also had ‘Liberty Pong’ which was a huge hit and provided us …

  • Active Recruiting

    On Wednesday, State Chair Lisa Di Giovanna and I had an active recruiting campaign at East Los Angeles College.

  • Status Report on Forming NKU Chapter

    First day back at Northern Kentucky University. Noon. Three courses over for the day… That’s when the real fun began. I hit the space in front of the Student Union–the area that receives the most traffic throughout the day–and start pitching liberty. With the help of good people like Abe, Nathan, Sebastian, and John, we …

  • Bringing Harmabe and Liberty to Bristol Community College

    With all the recent controversy over at UMASS Amherst over Harambe memes and free speech, I decided it would be a smart tactic to include Harambe at my YAL Chapter’s table at the BCC Annual Club Fair. I went and printed out some “Saving Private Harambe” Memes, grabbed my materials, and set up shop (Which …

  • Updating an Old Classic
