You know the drill. We’ve been here before, Yale. The NCAA men’s hockey tournament kicks off today as your Elis take on Boston University at 2 p.m. If you’re not already halfway to Manchester, N.H., catch the game on a TV screen near you — we recommend the one in Payne-Whitney for the University’s official watch party this afternoon. Let’s party like it’s 2013.
Finest against Bravest. With the Bulldogs on the road, Ingalls Rink will host a game between the New Haven Police Department and their counterparts from the Fire Department. They might not be playing for a national title, but the pride that’s at stake just might be worth more.
It’s a revolution. Today, some students plan to take activism a step further with Unite Yale: Rally for Student Power, an organized protest calling on the University to resolve campus unrest over every one of the year’s most talked-about issues — mainly divestment and mental health policy — in one fell swoop.
All grown up. But student protests are so college. If you’re looking to balance things out by channeling your inner middle-schooler later, you’re in luck: Crushes and Chaperones is tonight. We still don’t think “Sweet Caroline” was ever a dance floor song, despite the Branford College Council’s insistence otherwise.
Job freeze. As it turns out, the brutal winter that we endured was more than just inconvenient. Amidst persistent snowfall and frigid temperatures, Connecticut lost 3,700 jobs in February, bringing state officials, labor economists and Yalies all to the same conclusion: We want warmer weather.
Romanticism is dead. Actually, we’re not quite sure what Romanticism is (and neither do the real experts, apparently). Fortunately, the YUAG is hosting a talk on the subject this afternoon. You’re welcome, HSAR 115 students.
The Utopia. In an attempt to create a “happier, healthier Yale,” the YCC is inviting students to participate in “Recharge Yale” this Sunday by shelving their cell phones and computer screens for some sun and sky. If only it were that easy to just unplug.
Ring by spring. Class ring, that is. For the first time, the class of 2017 received an email from ASA YaleClassRings on Thursday inviting them to order now. Isn’t it a little early to be thinking about that?
THIS DAY IN YALE HISTORY 2014 Admissions decisions are released to the 30,000 high school students applying for a spot in Yale’s class of 2018. Ultimately, 1,935 are accepted for a 6.26 percent admit rate.
