THE NEWS

  • With a year left before he steps down as New Haven’s longest-serving mayor, Mayor John DeStefano Jr. delivered his final State of the City address Monday night at City Hall. Speaking to a crowded chamber, DeStefano focused on four areas in his speech: education, the economy, public safety and the budget. Read more about his speech in tomorrow’s News.
  • Representatives from Yale College, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the 12 professional schools are collaborating on a proposal for a University-wide student center. The proposed student center would add new spaces to the University, help connect undergraduates and graduates, and offer late-night activities for students seeking dry nighttime options.
  • Students visiting the Yale University Library home page will now see a very different website from the one available online over the past decade. The new home page, launched this semester, aims to help students and faculty find research materials quickly and easily, said Andrew Predmore, web operations manager for the library. Predmore added that the new page will work better with mobile devices and represent all of Yale’s libraries rather than just the largest ones.
