It’s all happening. Rising star Allison Williams ’10 was on campus Monday evening for a 7:30 p.m. screening of the first episode of “Girls,” the HBO series she’s starring in. Williams held a question-and-answer session after the screening ended. “Girls” — directed by Lena Dunham and produced by Judd Apatow — premieres this Sunday.

We knew it first. Yale College Council President Brandon Levin ’13 was included on an email of five “campus cuties” sent out by the women’s interest website Her Campus on Sunday. Levin, who according to the website is single, was selected from “among the cuties at all 200+ of our campus chapters,” according to Her Campus.

Taking shape. Robert A. M. Stern Architects officially completed the technical designs for Yale’s 13th and 14th residential colleges on March 30. To see the renderings, check out a slideshow posted to yaledailynews.com.

Parodied. Next Media Animation, a Taiwanese website that creates CGI parodies of recent news stories, released a video on Monday depicting the controversy surrounding Yale-NUS. Highlights include University President Richard Levin helping Singaporean students do a keg stand, the Yale faculty wielding torches and a surprisingly detailed depiction of the Sterling Memorial Library’s front steps.

Winners. Six Yale College teaching prizes for 2012 have been awarded to professors in departments ranging from history to psychology to geology and geophysics, the Dean’s Office announced Monday. The following professors won awards: George Chauncey, Laurie Santos, Andrew Casson, Anne Fadiman, Ronald Smith and Moira Fradinger.

A little confusion. The Yale College Council on Monday sent out an email enumerating how much summer storage students in each college could access — Silliman students get six boxes, Berkeleyites get five, Stilesians get zero — but it turns out the email contained a few errors. The numbers of boxes for Saybrugians and TDers alike were misstated.

It’s coming. Dean of Student Affairs Marichal Gentry sent an email to the student body on Monday reminding everyone that Thursday is tap night for senior societies, that hazing is against state law, that underage students cannot consume alcohol and that blindfolds are not allowed. OK.

THIS DAY IN YALE HISTORY

1969 Harvard University students voted to strike after 300 students were arrested and 22 were hospitalized when police broke up a protest in front of Widener Library.
