• Nearly 60 years after his graduation from Yale, James L. Buckley ’44 LAW ’49 returned to campus as the only living person who has held a high office in each of the three branches of the U.S. government. At a Pierson College Master’s Tea co-sponsored by the William F. Buckley, Jr. Program on Wednesday afternoon, Buckley reflected on the balance between state and fedearal power and its origins in the Constitution, drawing a diverse audience of over 50 undergraduates, graduates students and members of the New Haven community.
  • As of October 1, underage drinkers can get Connecticut property owners charged with a misdemeanor offense.
    Under the new law, any state property owner who permits underage drinking in his or her household “recklessly or with criminal negligence” could face a minimum of $500 in fines or one year in prison if it is a first-time offense. Serious offenders can now face charges of a class A misdemeanor — only one step below a felony — which calls for a larger fine of up to $2,000 as well as a possible one-year prison stint.
  • Seniors gathered around the back room of Viva Zapata Bar on Wednesday night for “SWUGLIFE: A Colloquium,” an informal panel discussion on issues seniors tackle in their final year on campus. The event was organized by the Communication and Consent Educators program, which was created in part to foster organic, informal discussions about Yale’s sexual culture.
