Knife to a gun fight. Something called “The Yale Letter” was sent out to the University community last night before being retracted by its senders for invading student inboxes. But we’re still around. Take note: There’s only room for one kind of snarky bulletin about the various happenings across campus in this town.
Not for long. A post on the Yale Undergraduate Admissions Facebook page listed the best spots on campus to stay warm — coffee shops, libraries butteries, one’s own bed… This might all be moot, though, because it seems to be heating up outside. Go step in a puddle for proof.
Heating up inside. The Chinese American Students Association of Yale’s Hotpot Night event takes place this evening at the Asian American Cultural Center on Crown Street. Promises of “high quality, amazing [and] tasty” food, plus a 60-seat cap, is absolutely a recipe for frustration for those unable to secure a spot.
Sigma Quick. With just two days until Spring Break, most of Yale is either completely done with work or very much still buried in it. Those of you lucky enough to be in the former category should be able to find something to pass the time — perhaps Sigma Chi’s “Thirsty Thursday” event tonight. They sure don’t miss a beat, do they?
x_O. Alternatively, DJ BL3ND, whose odd performance mask resembles the “x_O” emoticon found all over his Twitter page, will be playing a concert tonight at Toad’s in a prime opportunity to show the Spring Fling Committee that they should have chosen him instead of Klingande.
Before takeoff. Students flying home (or elsewhere, for that matter) on JetBlue will have the chance to thank the airline’s founder in person today. Also the creator of Brazilian company Azul Airlines, David Neeleman is the guest of honor at a Pierson College Master’s Tea this afternoon at 4 p.m.
Throw them an apple. A message from the Teaching, Learning, and Advising Committee to the undergraduate community invited students to nominate their best instructors — ranging from graduate student TAs to tenured professors — for teaching prizes. We’d imagine these writeups will be more personal than the typical course evaluation.
THIS DAY IN YALE HISTORY 1954 Yale’s Freshman Prom event draws roughly 1,200 people (550 of them being females from other schools). And to guard against presumed debauchery on campus, the University has fourteen extra officers from the Yale Police Department on duty.
