In the span of one week, three college masters and deans announced that they would be stepping down from their posts, and WEEKEND suspects we're yet to see the end of this exodus.
A leap from the brink
All this is to say that here at WEEKEND we’re not about to deny the future. It’s coming, not just the drift of seasons and the march toward graduation, but the big moments: our first issue, our first time on the masthead, our first (hopefully not fatal) errors on K4.
The future may seem scary, but up in the lounge we’re perched and ready.
Time to Go
Last May, the class of 2013 donned their gowns and funny hats, gathered on Old Campus and said au revoir to their bright college years. They dispersed to myriad adventures and identities in a place called “the real world.” Or did they? WEEKEND profiles the stragglers that never quite got the message: 2013, time to go.
An ending, a beginning
Since its conception, WEEKEND has carried a message at its core, a sentiment that has fueled the long hours in our perch at 202 York: everyday is WEEKEND. And indeed, we have spent every waking moment thinking of the issues, thinking of the trends, thinking of you: the artsy and the living.
You’ve had a cold for a week. A website has told you that you have a sinus infection. You will not go to a doctor.
The title of Red Grooms’s installation at the Yale University Art Gallery is telling: Larger than Life.
Hungry? Broke? Desperate? Don’t worry – restaurant Week is here. WEEKEND explored 4 classy, popular and up-and-coming restaurants in New Haven and dished out what good deals and meals are out there. Masticating yet? (look it up, you philistine.)
The Story of You
This past Monday, the Peabody Museum of Natural History held ID Day, inviting visitors to bring in their own objects and learn about their histories. Ever wanted to carbon-date objects from your own past and discover just how convoluted their journeys have been? WEEKEND writers did just that.
Pux et Victorious
Last Saturday, for the first time in Yale hockey history, the Bulldogs defeated Quinnipiac 4–0 to win the NCAA Division I men’s hockey championship. But you already knew that. This week, WEEKEND brings you what you don’t already know. What were the players thinking moments after the final buzzer rang? If it took Yale this long to win, then what were we doing for the past 120 years? Three hockey players offer the details on what this momentous victory means; a Yale history professor gives us a crash course in Yale hockey history; a devoted hockey fan tells us about the Pittsburgh viewing experience; and for the first time in the News’ history, a Quinnipiac student offers his take on the Yale-Quinnipiac rivalry. Take a moment and read their words — because this is what it feels like to go to a school that’s good at sports.
WEEKEND WANTS DEMOCRACY
Don’t you dislike one-man elections? Don’t you think they decrease the legitimacy of the institution at stake? The saying goes, “Vote or DIE!” but here at WEEKEND, we just cannot take the Yale College Council elections seriously this year. We were hoping for the first female YCC president in recent memory, or a Brandon Levin »
