• The Yale College Council is pushing for Yale to give undergraduates an extra three weeks in the semester for deciding whether to take classes Credit/D/Fail.

    The YCC submitted a proposal to Yale College Dean Mary Miller last week that would allow students to elect to take courses Credit/D/Fail up to five weeks into the semester — three weeks later than the current deadline at the end of shopping period.

  • Paul Desan MED ’93, director of the Winter Depression Research Clinic at the Yale School of Medicine, recently submitted an improved version of a light box — one of the most popular treatments for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) — to the Food and Drug Administration for review. If approved, the device would be the first ever light box to be federally recognized for SAD, greatly improving the light box market for consumers, Desan said.
  • In a rare appearance outside its reservation in New Mexico and Arizona, the Supreme Court of the Navajo Nation came to Yale to meet with students and hear a case on campus Monday evening.

    About 250 people watched in the Law School Auditorium as the Court judged the case Navajo Nation v. RJN Construction Management, Inc., Robert J. Nelson and The Home for Women and Children, which involves a dispute over land ownership.
