Friday’s Buzz: 12.03.10


  • The 20-day “Save It or Shave It” campaign for Hyungmi Lim ’13, who is battling ovarian cancer, culminates Friday with a party called “Reading’s Weak,” held by the International Students Organization. Lim, an international student from South Korea on full financial aid, is juggling three classes, chemotherapy and an on-campus job at the Morse Buttery to pay for her medical expenses. To help her meet her financial costs, Liz Asai ’13 and Timothy Pham ’13, two of her friends in Morse, organized the campaign.
  • Though some “visitors” to the Yale University Art Galleryhave to wear hard hats to do their work, the on-going construction has not kept professors or students from doing theirs. In fact, more faculty are using the space now than did before the renovations brought cranes and scaffolding to Chapel street. Data collected by gallery staff shows the gallery was used more for teaching last year than the previous year, and this year’s numbers are also on the rise.
  • Students and administrators are still uncertain about the future of education courses at Yale. Kaitlyn Newell ’12, who organized a public gathering yesterday to raise awareness about the end of the certification program, said she is discouraged that students have not been given clear information about what courses will remain and why the program has to end before juniors can complete the two-year certification. Both Yale College Dean Mary Miller and Associate Dean of Undergraduate Education Joseph Gordon said they do not know which specific courses will be cut, though professors in the program said they have some idea.
