Marking a historic high, 18 percent of first-year students in Yale’s class of 2027 are Latine.
There was a four percent increase in matriculating Latine students in the 2023-2024 school year than in the 2022-2023 school year, according to numbers released by the University’s admissions office. With the increase in Latine representation on campus, several students told the News that there is now a greater need for a wider net of support for student clubs from Yale and affinity groups including La Casa.
Eileen Galvez, director of La Casa and assistant dean at Yale, said she commends the growth in the amount of Latine students on campus.
“I’m actually quite excited to see how much space Latine students are taking up at not just La Casa, but at Yale overall,” Galvez said. “The growth of this year is certainly a major accomplishment for our current students and future generations to come.” MORE
