Is it? Yes it is. It is indeed Chicken Tender Thursday. Load up your plate at a dining hall near you.
Step 1: Be a good person. Despite the efforts of the Whiffs/Whim ’n Rhythm to convince us otherwise, experience matters on applications.

Do you love Yale? Another major application due tomorrow is for a shot at joining the Yale Tour Guides, who collectively form the face of Yale for visitors. If you’re sweet enough to make ’em swoon, give it a shot.

Back on track. Literally. The Wednesday evening derailment of a Harlem-bound train in Grand Central tangled up an entire slate of Metro-North New Haven-bound trains into the night.

Our heroes. Somehow, it has just come to our attention that Karaoke Heroes on Crown Street hosts Student Thursdays every week from 7:30 p.m. through midnight. Get a head start on the weekend (with discounted drinks) for us — we’ll be stuck on York Street producing Friday’s paper.
Everything is awesome. For anyone looking for a more constructive, kid-friendly way to spend the evening, the Wilson Branch of the New Haven Free Public Library is hosting a LEGO Club meeting at 4 p.m.
