THE NEWS

  • Researchers in departments from architecture to forestry to literature all want in on the new cartography. Find out why Global Information Systems is all the academic rage in WEEKEND.
  • Students wishing to soon switch their Yale Horde email to Yale’s Gmail service may want to reach out to their friends who have already been using the new system. Student techs and about 70 early adopters, who volunteered to try the email service this fall, will each nominate up to 10 other students to transition to EliApps, Yale’s version of Google Apps for Education, applications designed for schools and universities that includes Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Sites, Google Chat, and Google Docs features.
  • In an effort to broaden its campus appeal this year, the Yale Women’s Center board is revamping its physical office at 198 Elm Street. The renovations include painting the walls orange, buying new furniture and decorating the space with memorabilia from the Center’s previous events and former members — updates aimed at transforming the Center from a meeting spot to a welcoming hangout.
