THE NEWS

  • Conflicting accounts have emerged over former quarterback Patrick Witt’s ’12 candidacy for a Rhodes Scholarship last fall. Witt has denied that the charges put forth in a Thursday New York Times article, which claimed that the Rhodes Trust suspended his candidacy after learning of an informal complaint of sexual assault filed by a female student.

  • While Yale students interested in degrees in math and science can choose between 23 majors, such students at the Yale-NUS College in Singapore will have only three majors to consider: “natural sciences,” or “physical sciences,” or “mathematical and computational sciences.” Yale-NUS students will be able to select tracks within one of the three majors, which administrators said will encourage a liberal arts approach to science when the school opens in the fall of 2013.
  • Though two new residential colleges are tentatively scheduled to open in 2015, it is not yet clear how the University will adjust its academic resources to accommodate the influx of students. The new colleges, which will house around 800 additional undergraduates in total, will require Yale to find more classroom space, offer more courses and hire more faculty members and teaching fellows, administrators said.
