ROSEN: Yale’s low ranking

If Yale wants to keep up with its peer institutions on low-income accessibility, the University must continue making changes.

ROSEN: Raffle the tickets

Yale should convey to its students that every field of study adds value to the College; setting aside privileges for specific segments of the population by major does not help accomplish that goal.

ROSEN: The need for $15

This perception, that a $15 per hour salary is somehow too high for a traditionally low-wage job, must be altered.

ROSEN: Rethink charter schools

As the Booker T. Washington Academy scandal develops, it is evident that we need to re-evaluate the expansion of charter schools across the state.

ROSEN: Keep pushing

These last several semesters have shown us that when students express their concerns, the administration is pushed to listen and act.

ROSEN: Time for change

The groundwork for progress on the issues students care about has been laid. Next semester will reveal whether administrators are serious about changing their policies in response to student criticism.

ROSEN: An admissions experiment

It’s good to see a well-respected institution acknowledging that the current college application system is flawed. It may not have found the perfect solution, but proposing an alternative is a good start.

ROSEN: A simple survey

The responses received by the YCC so far are thorough and touch on a wide range of student issues, but there’s a problem — only 16 responses were submitted as of last week.

ROSEN: For equal summer opportunities

The student income contribution is an important financial consideration for over half of the student body, so it stands to reason that fellowships should be able to cover it.

ROSEN: Yale’s rising cost

The cost of attending Yale College has increased by nearly $20,000 in an eight-year period. This is a problem for students across the socioeconomic spectrum.

ROSEN: Hold YCC accountable

Beyond my disappointment, I left the meeting with a strong conviction that non-YCC members need to start attending YCC meetings.
