HALL-PALERM: Challenging our convictions

December 5, 2014 • 0
If the other students in the class were anything like me, they took this class not to fundamentally shift their perception of inequality. They took the class precisely because they were already aware of the problem.

TRAMONTE: Baring it all

Those seeking a spectacle will always find one underneath the Saybrook flag at the end of the third quarter of the Yale-Harvard game. Responding to the rallying cry, “shoeessss!” the students remove their boots and derbies and wave them around in preparation for the Saybrook Strip.

AROUTIOUNIAN: For an end to columns

The proliferation of Wikipedia, other “free access, free content” sites and now smartphones will continue to revolutionize the way people around the world access information.

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.

DANIELS: Competing for stress

December 2, 2014 • 0
What we are seeking when we talk to our peers about our stress is not comfort or guidance but validation in the knowledge that our workload is more unmanageable than everybody else’s.

BLACKMON: What’s a white person to do?

November 26, 2014 • 0
I give my thoughts here from the perspective of a white American who lives in an overwhelmingly white part of the South in the hopes that others in similar settings might find how I have proceeded helpful.

On the wall next to my bed, I’ve pinned up a thank you note from my best friend from high school that may actually be the best love letter anyone will ever write me.

KIM: Not the solution

November 20, 2014 • 0
Do I think that abandoning affirmative action — that “forgetting” about race in the application process — is the route colleges ought to take? In short, no.

HERBERT: Caroling for the calendar

December 5, 2014 • 0
I call upon the members of Yale College to join us on Beinecke Plaza today at 3 p.m. for caroling in support of the YCC’s calendar initiative.

HARVEY: Why our hands are still up

December 5, 2014 • 0
People of color in this country perpetually live with their hands up, incessantly trying to prove themselves equal citizens worthy of respect. We defend ourselves against racialized police brutality, a result of deeply rooted discrimination within the political and justice systems.

STANFORD: A lack of leadership

Worldwide supporters of Palestinian resistance, including those at Yale, need to make sure their message excludes violence, and be sure to condemn violent actions when they occur, rather than waiting to condemn an Israeli response.

EZE: The perils of scalping

December 5, 2014 • 0
Scalping contradicts the inclusive spirit of this campus. While scalpers themselves are not bad people, the practice takes advantage of students’ desire to engage in campus traditions.

As a tennis player, I think I can speak for most athletes and say that we greatly admire and respect fellow students, but it hurts to hear comments stigmatizing the athletic community.

The football team fought hard in Cambridge last week. They battled every play and never gave up. It was the best game of college football I’ve seen in a long time.

KOHRMAN: The other stories

December 4, 2014 • 0
Amid heightened attention to sexual assault, we must remember that these misdeeds do not always unfold as variations of the same story. The antagonists are not always men, and the victims are not always women.

GREENBERG: The worst Friday

December 3, 2014 • 0
Consumerism and excess are attractive to the global elite for the same reasons they are attractive to Yale University, for the same reasons they are attractive to Black Friday shoppers. Consumption is driven by status, recognition and instant gratification.

Three specific recommendations give Dean Holloway the opportunity to claim sexual misconduct as the issue that defines his deanship.

NEWS’ VIEW: Holloway, make sexual assault your issue

Three specific recommendations give Dean Holloway the opportunity to claim sexual misconduct as the issue that defines his deanship.
Holloway must ensure undergraduate education does not suffer with expansion.

NEWS’ VIEW: Before colleges, show us the numbers

November 10, 2014 • 0
It's one thing for the University to centralize decision-making. It's a whole other matter to keep the facts so close to the vest that faculty and students cannot even debate or question the decisions being made.

NEWS’ VIEW: On sexual climate, opacity

November 4, 2014 • 0
Yale will survive an embarrassing front-page story in the Times. A hostile sexual culture and work environment are permanent scourges.

NEWS’ VIEW: Malloy for governor

November 3, 2014 • 0
In a second term, which we hope Malloy secures tomorrow, the governor should move beyond superficial reforms and address some of the structural reasons Connecticut lags behind the country in economic recovery.

NEWS’ VIEW: DeLauro for Congress

November 3, 2014 • 0
From her role in founding Congress’ Progressive Caucus to her staunch defense of labor unions, DeLauro has solidified her position as a stalwart of the left.
As the University prepares to expand undergraduate enrollment, administrators must acknowledge that current facilities are inadequate.

NEWS’ VIEW: Facilities must expand with colleges

October 27, 2014 • 0
We are unanimous in the belief that, as long as other facilities do not expand, a 14-college Yale is less desirable than a 12-college Yale.
