STERN: The Emporium DNA Prize

January 12, 2015 • 0
It seems to me that if the prize did not want to give a huge advantage to kids with money, it would not give any weight to the rarity or quality of the books, it would not privilege hardbacks over paperbacks and it would not mandate that collections be extracurricular.

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.

STERN: Old colleges, new names

October 27, 2014 • 0
Let’s name the new colleges after more diverse individuals. And let’s rename some of our old colleges after more diverse individuals.

STERN: The politics of profanity

October 20, 2014 • 0
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’s follow Chicago

October 6, 2014 • 0
Chicago has instituted reforms to help support students. Yale should follow suit.

STERN: Make Yale free

September 30, 2014 • 0
Big news: Yale is extremely well endowed.

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.
