Cross Campus: 10.28.10

“Glorious consensual sex?” In an e-mail about safety over Halloween weekend sent Wednesday by Dean of Student Affairs Marichal Gentry, the Sexual Harassment and Assault Resources & Education (SHARE) Center reminded Yalies how great consensual sex is. “Glorious consensual sex is something given, not taken, something shared not endured: something that makes you smile the next day, not something that hurts psychologically, emotionally or physically,” the e-mail said.

Pierson Dean Amerigo Fabbri also had some deep thoughts for All Hallows’ Eve. He wrote to Piersonites: “The will to dream and the will to poetry; the power to capture in a moment just eternity. Your youth is just this much: dream, poetry and eternity; a treasure whose limits reach above the sky and below the sea. Please, hold on to it dearly this weekend, thinking how precious you are to your friends, to me, to your Master, and to your loved ones.”
