Tuesday’s Buzz: 9.21.10

THE NEWS

  • It’s a decision that haunts only the luckiest of college seniors: Harvard or Yale? Most cross-admitted students say the choice between the two schools was a difficult one. And admissions officers at both colleges work hard to woo prefrosh leaning toward their rival. And what do these cross-admits mean for Yale’s admissions policy, and even the identity of Yale’s student body? Reporter Carmen Lu investigates in tomorrow’s Up Close.
  • Tough times for budding journalists. Because of last year’s endowment drop, the Yale Institute for Social and Policy Studies has been forced to stop funding six undergraduate publications this year as a result of budget cuts. The loss of funding has caused some of these journals to question their futures.
  • Sterling Professor Emeritus Vincent Scully ’40 GRD ’49 is making his debut on the big screen. The Checkerboard Film Foundation screened its documentary, “Vincent Scully: An Art Historian Among Architects,” last night at the Yale Club of New York. Scully’s reaction: “Terrible subject but nice movie.”
