THE NEWS

  • For one week starting Wednesday, Yale students can pass up Broadway’s chain retailers in favor of clothing from a bygone era. Wednesday marked the relaunch of {Cut.Cloth}, a New Haven-based vintage pop-up boutique that has opened three times in storefronts around New Haven and once in New York’s TriBeCa neighborhood since its establishment in December 2011.
  • Five years after the creation of the Elm City Resident Card and the controversy it generated, City Hall is seeking to expand the program, which provides identification and access to financial services for New Haven residents. In a Wednesday afternoon press conference at JUNTA for Progressive Action, a New Haven-based Latino rights advocacy organization, Mayor John DeStefano Jr. announced a survey designed to gauge the Elm City Resident Card’s success and plan for its future expansion.
  • Students who found their shopping lists for this term clustered within the same time slots were not alone. This fall, as in past years, seminars and large lecture classes are concentrated in the middle of the week during the late morning and afternoon, despite past efforts to get departments to assign course times more evenly. Administrators said the trend is driven by students and professors alike, who often prefer concentrating their class time in the middle of the week and avoiding early morning classes.
