Finally. At long last, the Yale College Council will announce the performance lineup for this year’s Spring Fling at Woad’s tonight. We’ve essentially confirmed Klingande, but things are pretty much up in the air otherwise. Let’s hope it’s worth the wait, YCC.
Pound-for-pound champ. Forbes Magazine’s annual article on the world’s richest people profiled 16 billionaires from Connecticut, including (everyone’s favorite) Bridgewater Associates founder Ray Dalio. With Dalio’s other, very powerful friends, the Nutmeg State boasts the nation’s highest number of billionaires-per-capita, though most of them are Greenwich financiers. Is anyone surprised?
He’s got a blank space. We tried to warn you, O Grand Strategists. But despite the News’ best efforts and those of professor Jeremy Friedman last week, one of Yale’s finest neglected to write his or her name on a proposal for a Grand Strategy summer project. Let’s hope the student can bounce back from Friedman’s “sternly” worded email to the class on Friday afternoon. Honestly, this is becoming pathetic.
To balance it out. “Speed networking,” however, is just the snobby proverbial older brother of the more fun, more flirty thing known as “speed dating.” Fortunately, some will have the chance to do the latter as well, with the 2017 Class Council’s “P.S. I Crush You” event and Calhoun Screw also taking place this weekend.
Terrible strategy. Yesterday, students in the infamous, highly selective, fiercely competitive and all-access “Grand Strategy” class received a stern reprimand from professor Jeremy Friedman for not … writing their names on their work. “Also, and I can’t believe I need to say this, whenever you submit something, please remember to put your name on it.” Please. For the sake of Humility.
