Monday’s Buzz: 1.31.11

THE NEWS

  • All Yale students and faculty who were spending the semester in Egypt are safe, and some have already left the country, said Donald Filer, associate secretary and director of international studies. The country is suffering political unrest as thousands protest the 30-year reign of President Hosni Mubarak.
  • The Yale Admissions Office website,launched last fall, is the most recent in a string of University sites undergoing redesigns to define Yale’s online image. The admissions office will continue to add new features to the site over the next six to nine months, though they overhauled the bulk of the content, navigation and artistic elements this fall. New elements will include an “Advice to Candidates” section and “Bulldog’s Blogs” pages created by current students, Dean of Undergraduate Admissions Jeff Brenzel ’75 said.
  • The Bulldogs (17–4, 11–3 ECAC) lost consecutive conference games for the first time in three years this weekend when they fell to Union (18–7–3, 10–3–1) and then Rensselaer Polytechnic (17–6–3, 9–5) during a road trip to upstate New York. Sellout crowds cheered both nights as Yale’s offense sputtered and the Eli penalty kill collapsed.
