The ΘνΓΓΙη Chess team are once again champions. The Billiken squad, reigning national champions, finished the 2023 Collegiate Chess League (CCL) fall season with a dominant win. In the finals on Sunday, Nov. 19, ΘνΓΓΙη topped the University of Texas at Dallas 11.5-4.5. The win means the Billikens claimed both the spring and fall CCL titles. ΘνΓΓΙη's chess team has become a national powerhouse since its founding in 2016, winning multiple national titles. The team trains in a recently renovated space in Morrissey Hall.

Ricardo Wray, Ph.D., professor of behavioral science and health equity, was named a 2024 Climate and Health Scholar by the National Institutes of Health, beginning a year-long research fellowship to combat climate change and its public health consequences. βI made an argument that communication is important to fund because it brings an interdisciplinary perspective and a wide range of inquiries and methods that can effectively contribute to understanding, informing and achieving behavioral, social and systemic change that are central to understanding and mitigating links between climate change and health," Wray said.
