Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)
And in the learning of another’s story, share your own. Because if I’ve discovered anything in the last four years, it’s this: when two or five or 10 people meet for the first time, and sigh and drop their shoulders and say, “Ok, this is who I am,” that — that — is the moment that everything turns wonderful.
Yale goes like this
I’m not sure when I became obsessed with singular perfects, those moments that the whole world seems bottled within. I collect them, catalogue them with the precision of the girl who used to be me, the seven year old with the hundreds of stamps set in the laminated pages of a blue binder.
Pretty soon, getting scened will amount to more social capital than an Andrew Goble photo.
CCE: The New Insiders
For Yalies, confusion with the Communication & Consent program is rooted in an inability to separate the seemingly dual identities of CCEs: on the one hand, CCEs are viewed as well-educated students, their perspective offering a sense of relatability to the general student body. On the other, CCEs’ position as paid employees leaves many students feeling suspect, as they’re unable to determine which advice is genuine, and which directives are merely a scripted subset of University policy. And most troubling of all, for some, is that CCEs do not seem able to determine which is either.

At Yale, where only about 20% of students play on an intercollegiate sports team, students that play on more than one team are an anomaly. This year, Charles Cook ’15 will become one of those rare individuals. When Cook signed as a football player for the Bulldogs in 2011, he had no idea that less than two years later, he would find a second home on Yale Field.
