    Re the late community-wide notifications regarding the snow, the real question is this: Why doesn’t Yale close like other colleges during such storms? All universities have to keep dining, medical and other essential services going; we are not unique in that regard. By staying open, faculty and staff are forced to try to get to campus, it is unclear whether libraries or other facilities are open, etc. It’s a complete free-for-all, with each school and unit doing its own thing. Does Yale remain open simply because the administration doesn’t have a plan in place like other schools, such as Columbia, Harvard, MIT, or the University of New Haven? All of these institutions and others have closed on days like today. Only Columbia was open today, but that was because the storm was not as bad in NYC.

    Its nice to know that Yale can give a nod to the surrounding community when it feels accommodating. Now if they could only do what 60 women’s colleges do in gender education and give Yale back to its men
