Monday’s Buzz: 1.24.10


  • According to the most recent Yale Dining survey, only 1.3 percent of Yale students identify as having a vegan diet, yet vegan dishes represent one of six or seven entrée options at each meal. Some non-vegan students are questioning whether the resources to provide vegan food could be better spent increasing the variety of other dishes.

  • If you weren’t at last Saturday’s men’s hockey game against Clarkson, there’s only one statistic you need to know: three Yale goals in 51 seconds. “We’re a team that feeds off of momentum and once we got that second goal I think guys started to believe a little bit,” right winger Sean Backman ’10 said.
  • Starting Monday, events kick off for Haiti Week, a series of educational panels and social events designed to raise awareness and funds for the on-going relief efforts for earthquake-struck Haiti.

      I am vegan. If a smaller percentage of Yalies are vegan than the percentage of vegan entree options, fine. There are also people who eat vegan occasionally as a ‘cuisine among many’ without considering themselves vegan. I really appreciate having food options, and I know many friends who choose to eat vegan from time to time that might be ending up outside the statistics!
