Thursday’s Buzz: 2.04.10

THE NEWS

  • While President Levin has not yet decided whether the University will continue to provide free copies of the New York Times in Yale College dining halls, he says he was taken aback by the intensity of student response at the idea of discontinuing the service: “I only asked an innocent question,” he said. “I didn’t threaten to stop anything.”

  • Now is not the first time the University has experienced difficult financial circumstances: in the ’70s, even the most basic services — like heating in residential colleges — were subject to budget cuts.
  • When Patricia Melton ’82 concluded her four years on the University’s track and field team, she had set records in every single indoor and outdoor running event at Yale. Now, Melton is being honored by the NCAA in its new exhibition to celebrate black athletes.
