New UGLE Recognitions and University Lodges

At its Quarterly Communication held on 12 March 2008, the United Grand Lodge of England resolved that recognition be accorded to:

* The Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Texas (That's Squire Bentley's GL)
* The National Grand Lodge of Romania
* The Grand Lodge of Congo
* The Grand Lodge of Bosnia and Herzegovina

In looking at the UGLE site today, another item caught my eye. The United Grand Lodge of England runs a program promoting and encouraging Freemasonry among students and staff at universities around the country.

  1. Funny you should mention this - I just heard about some people who were trying to get a lodge started at University of Connecticut

  2. Chris,

    I don't know if you remember him, but W.Bro. Matt Lowe who is PM of Riley Lodge attended both Isaac Newton and Apollo Lodge while studying at Cambridge in England.
