Proceed to party. “Solo Cups @ Yale,” a Design for America project that matches participants with each other over meals, kicks off Tuesday in the Morse/Stiles dining hall. Given the number of times we’ve seen something like this come up (e.g., pear | yale,… Tinder), it seems that Yalies really like meeting new Yalies.
Simpler times. Tapping into a universal longing for the days when we were all less concerned about stock markets and presidential campaigns, people around campus have been selling Girl Scout cookies — one stand set up shop outside the Branford and Davenport dining halls on Friday. Either we’re all sentimental or the cookies just taste good.
You know the drill. We’ve been here before, Yale. The NCAA men’s hockey tournament kicks off today as your Elis take on Boston University at 2 p.m. If you’re not already halfway to Manchester, N.H., catch the game on a TV screen near you — we recommend the one in Payne-Whitney for the University’s official watch party this afternoon. Let’s party like it’s 2013.
Survive and advance. Such is the mentality of the men’s hockey team, which arrived in Manchester, N.H., on Wednesday to prepare for their first-round showdown with Boston University tomorrow. We’d imagine the survival instinct kicks in pretty strongly in the state where you either “Live Free or Die.”
