In the second installment of the residential college council roundup — a new column that reports on the goings-on of residential college councils — Calhoun College is leading the way in brains: Master Jonathan Holloway announced at Monday’s meeting that the college won the 2009-’10 Sheffield Cup, which rewards the college with the highest GPA in math, science and engineering. This is the third time Calhoun has won in the past 11 years.
Hounies may be bright, but Saybrook College is much brighter, at least after Master Paul Hudak and his wife have recently been spotted drilling holes in Saybrary tables to install new lamps.
In Davenport College, though, the famed Waterford crystal chandelier has gone “askew.” Master Richard Schottenfeld urged students to be patient while the person who originally restored the million-dollar fixture can be located to repair the problem.
Ezra Stiles College students anxious to make a grocery run will not need such patience. The council is working to organize shuttles to take students to Stop & Shop (or a comparable grocery store) every two weeks, now that downtown New Haven has had no grocery store since Shaw’s closed last spring.
Also doing some shopping will be Trumbull College students, whose council plans to sell new college gear. While the college has immediate plans to sell hoodies and sweatpants this fall, at least one meeting attendant expressed interest in purchasing some “Trumderwear.”
Should that underwear be red or green, Trumbullians can plan to wear it to Calhoun’s annual Trolley Night. The college’s council is planning the carnival-themed party — where students wear red, yellow or green according to their relationship status — for Oct. 1 this year. Those hoping to attend should prepare to hear “lots of Jason Derulo,” according to the council meeting’s minutes.
