RecycleMania Week 5 results have been posted, with Yale holding its own in many categories. Yalies’ top score came in the “Gorilla Prize” competition — collecting the highest gross tonnage of recyclables — with a ninth-place ranking among 343 participating schools. The Elis are also 22nd in the “Per Capita Classic” — a measure of recyclables gathered per person.

But Yale could definitely be greener on the whole, as the Blue ranks 148th out of 264 schools qualifying for the all-encompassing RecycleMania category of “Grand Champion” with a cumulative recycling rate of 23.98 percent.

A study break for the strong-stomached. Morse will host a pre-med study break in Swing Space tonight at 8:30 p.m. with pizza, but squeamish aspiring doctors should beware — undergraduates are heading over to the Medical School at 9 p.m. to watch current medical students dissect a cadaver.

A silent candlelight vigil for the victims of the earthquake in Chile, organized by the Chaplain’s Office and the Latin American Student Organization, will be held Thursday at 8 p.m. in Dwight Hall Chapel.

Correction: March 3, 2010

Cross Campus contained several errors. The Ward 22 co-chair election occurred Tuesday, not Wednesday. Another item neglected to note the Latin American Student Organization’s role in organizing Thursday’s vigil for the victims of the earthquake in Chile.
