THE NEWS

  • Although most college-age students who work on campaigns generally spend most of their time in entry-level positions, calling voters or inputting data, a number of conservative Yalies were able to achieve high-ranking positions in this year’s presidential primary. Read their stories in tomorrow’s News.
  • Though Sex Week 2012 organizers are searching for alternate sources of funding after administrators banned corporate sponsors, coordinators acknowledged that the restrictions will limit their ability to attract high-profile speakers.

    Connie Cho ’13, one of the Sex Week directors, said organizers have turned to “grassroots fundraising efforts” — including soliciting residential college masters, students, alumni and the Yale College Dean’s Office — in an attempt to meet their target budget of $20,000.

  • Weeks before hosting a symposium titled “Is Drawing Dead,” the Yale School of Architecture’s current student exhibition takes a step back to honor the basics. Composed of approximately 24 pieces hand-drawn by students last semester, “Visualizing Form” went up on the third floor of Rudolph Hall. The show runs alongside the symposium in February, which Architecture professor and symposium co-coordinator Victor Agran said aims to answer the question: “what value does drawing still have in architecture?”

    How about fried rice fried with chicken fat instead of oils that don’t have a place in the poor man diet.
