Tuesday’s Buzz: 11.9.10

THE NEWS

  • Operation Nightlife, the New Haven Police Department initiative that resulted in the Oct. 2 raid on Elevate, will soon affect another facet of Yale nightlife. The initiative is shifting focus from bars and clubs –such as Elevate– towards package stores, said Lt. Rebecca Sweeney, the NHPD downtown district manager. The change has already resulted in at least two liquor license suspensions, but four out of five under-21 Yale students said the crackdown will alter the way they go out.
  • At a Faculty of Arts and Sciences meeting last Thursday, Yale College Dean Mary Miller announced the creation of the new Visiting International Student program.The University will bring 24 students from three of its partner institutions — including the National University of Singapore — to Yale College for one year. The students will live in residential colleges and “participate fully in the life of the campus,” Miller said in a written draft of the announcement.
  • The Sophomore Class Council has been notorious for its inefficacy,but this year’s council is trying to breathe new life into the organization. SCC President Omar Njie ’13 said the group’s goal is to set up more class bonding opportunities and help their peers navigate a year known for its “slump.” To increase its impact, the council has doubled in size and undergone a series of structural changes, but 12 of 20 sophomores interviewed still said they did not know what purpose the council serves.
