• All you other Ivies, be jealous: Yale is the only college in the Ivy League that has two weeks of spring break. The extended break, which was first introduced in 1867, gives students one week of vacation time and one week to catch up on work, University officials say.
  • Like many Yalies, Felix Raspall ARC ’10 is looking forward to spending some of his spring break catching up on an unfinished project for a class — a project that centers on building a piece of furniture. According to School of Architecture administrators, furniture design has been a key component of the Yale’s architecture curriculum.
  • Forget your “Civil War” reading. Tomorrow’s Friday Forum features spring break book recommendations by Yale professors from a wide range of academic fields. The perfect read for your 10-day vacay in Cancun — check.
