Monday’s Buzz: 9.12.01

THE NEWS

  • Read our coverage of the campus vigil to commemorate 9/11.
  • Yale College Dean Mary Miller said Yale College Publications would no longer offer the Blue Book course catalogue because many students now prefer to search for courses online. She said she hopes the College can soon provide an enhanced version of the current Online Course Selection (OCS) system.
  • Yalies in need of groceries or a late-night slice of pizzacan use Yale Transit’s new set of weekend shuttle routes, developed in conjunction with the Yale College Council. YCC President Brandon Levin ’13 said the council began talks with transit officials in April and continued planning through the summer, working to adjust the routes to reflect where students go most often. Weekend shuttles now operate on two schedules: a daytime route visits distant off-campus locations such as Stop and Shop, and a nighttime route transports students among popular weekend hangouts, such as Gourmet Heaven on Broadway and Alpha Delta Pizza on Elm Street, with a central drop-off point at Phelps Gate on Old Campus.
