THE NEWS

  • Three months after all undergraduates were invited to convert from Yale Horde email to EliApps, Information and Technology Services is still waiting for the majority of students to switch their accounts. Sixty percent of undergraduates have yet to transition from Horde to EliApps, said Loriann Higashi, manager of the Student Technology Collaborative. Students have received multiple emails from ITS reminding them to make the switch before the end of the academic year.
  • Construction has begun on a $6.5 million project to build a design and innovation studio for Yale’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. The Center for Engineering Innovation and Design, planned to open in the Becton Center on Prospect Street, will serve as a hub for engineering students from different disciplines to collaborate in developing ideas and producing designs. The 8,500-square-foot studio will be outfitted with group work areas, conference rooms, and fabrication facilities for metal, plastics, wood, biomedical material and electronics.
  • Sex Week 2012 organizers said the administrative ban on corporate sponsors led them to change their fundraising strategies and planned list of events to accommodate the financial restrictions.

    The biennial event, which concluded Tuesday, secured $13,000 out of its original target budget of $20,000 after soliciting support from administrators, student groups and outside donors, said Sex Week co-director Connie Cho ’13.
