KHAN: Contextualizing Hirsi Ali

September 22, 2014 • 0
By portraying Islam as an inherently dangerous, unstable doctrine that must be contained and quieted, Hirsi Ali reinforces Islamophobic ideologies — ideologies which have dire consequences for Muslims.

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.

POSNER: Quitting is a virtue

September 19, 2014 • 0
When we set up a model of behavior that understands and accepts — even welcomes — the conscientious choice to quit an extracurricular or leave a job, we create a climate that values student wellbeing, focus and passion over minimized sleep schedules and maximized resumes.

One could argue that eating mangosteen or lakoocha starts the year off with the intention to be adventurous and try new things, but really novelty is the clear objective of this ritual.

MORRIS: The pay gap starts at graduation

September 17, 2014 • 0
The pay gap between men and women is real. It starts with the first job right out of college and it’s widest in many of the highest-paying professions.

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.

ROSEN: Raffle the tickets

September 16, 2014 • 0
Yale should convey to its students that every field of study adds value to the College; setting aside privileges for specific segments of the population by major does not help accomplish that goal.

HALL-PALERM: Facing the ugly truth

September 12, 2014 • 0
We as a society have a systemic inability (or unwillingness) to face the ugly truth of rape and assault.

OHAYON: Smoke and mirrors policy

September 22, 2014 • 0
Last winter, when I was a senior at Yale, I was sexually assaulted. I wasn’t strangled or choked, I wasn’t pinned down. I didn’t say “no.” But I was so drunk that I can’t remember most of it.

KONG: The meaning of Yale Blue

September 19, 2014 • 0
Within weeks of arriving at Yale, I found myself with half my face painted, marching into Payne Whitney for Yale’s first-ever freshman pep rally, Yale Up. Because somehow, without even realizing it, I had let myself be swept up into the sea of Yale Blue.

ARBUTHNOT: Twenty four hours in Dusseldorf

September 19, 2014 • 0
Airports are interesting places. Dusseldorf is primarily a business city, so you’d assume that most of the people passing through are unfriendly men in suits. Not at all.

KOHRMAN: Testing ourselves

September 18, 2014 • 1
I was waiting at a new clinic in a new city. The clinic, which filled the first floor of a small house just east of downtown Denver, still bore vestiges of a home; a wrought iron fence, a little yard and a mailbox.
