  • For the first time in decades, Dwight Hall is undergoing a major overhaul to update its organizational structure. Following the retirement of former Executive Director Alex Knopp in September and former Financial Director Ray Bendici last spring, the organization hired an interim director to allow for a “time of reflection” in which Dwight Hall could complete structural and organizational changes.
  • Undergraduate Career Services will ramp up the number of its international internship programs this summer, providing work opportunities in new fields and geographic areas. UCS, which currently offers the World Fellows and International Bulldogs programs as structured, Yale-sponsored summer work opportunities, will expand both programs to include more locations and also debut a number of new positions to students in fields such as engineering and global health, said Jeanine Dames, director of UCS and associate dean of Yale College.
  • Last weekend, Trumbull College’s Nick Chapel theater was host to an unusual collaboration, “the river don’t flow no more,” written and directed by Klara Wojtkowska GRD ’13. Unlike most shows on campus, “river” brought together graduate and undergraduate students, as well as an actor from Quinnipiac University. Wojtkowska said her project initially ran into obstacles, from recruiting actors to finding a performance space, which made her realize how limited the performance resources available to graduate students are.
