STERN: On gratitude

December 2, 2014 • 0
We should not express “gratitude” to Yale for allowing women through its ivy-covered gates. To discuss coeducation in such a reductive manner is to disregard both the work that went into forcing Yale to admit women and the continuing efforts toward gender equality on this campus.

I think that avoiding swear words for the sake of respectability, even in print, even in a newspaper, is ridiculous.

STERN: Farewell, grade deflation

October 13, 2014 • 0
Especially considering how close Yale came to almost enacting a similar — or even more draconian — grading policy two years ago, we should pay close attention to our neighbors to the south.

STERN: Let them eat humanities

September 22, 2014 • 0
If I were applying to college again, I wouldn’t list history as my prospective major as I did four years ago. I hope this doesn’t sound paranoid, but I think listing that today could actually hurt my application. And that’s a problem.

STERN: Not a liberal bastion

September 16, 2014 • 0
I don’t mean to parody conservative thinkers. I mean to parody the platitudinous whiners on the left and center who seem to think that a center-left coalition at American universities is some sort of problem.
