Back to reality. Forgive the juniors stumbling back to campus over the course of this morning, for they know not what they’ve done — Thursday night’s tap events, after all, will forever remain veiled in secrecy. Welcome back to real society, 2016, where the costumes aren’t that colorful and biographies are just the subject of a Gaddis class.

Let freedom ring. Today marks the 150th anniversary of General Ulysses S. Grant’s Union victory over Confederate forces at Appomattox. To honor the occasion, bell towers (like our very own Harkness Tower) across the country will ring for four minutes, beginning at 3:15 p.m. Mayor Toni Harp and professor David Blight will be on-hand to make remarks on the significance of the anniversary.

And White House staff interviewed didn’t paint a very pretty picture.

Close to home. Yale Police Department Chief Ronnell Higgins’ latest email went out a little past midnight Tuesday, alerting campus to a robbery that took place at the York Street-Chapel Street intersection. Neither of the victims, both undergraduates, reported injuries, but still: That Google Maps location was far too recognizable.
