  1. So glad we don't have to worry about undergrad and grad school anymore. Got mine through mostly with scholarships.

  2. Should have be titled "Shots from Yale"; there is much more to my home town than the Yale campus.

    1. Are we talking the West & East Rock vistas?
      To say nothing of “ah-beets?”
      Salut to the Elm City !

  3. Calls to rename "Yale," for obvious reasons, are intensifying (see "Calhoun" college). Does the community have any suggestions for Yale's new name? I think Clinton University would be splendid.

    1. I have officially withdrawn from all affiliation with Yale. I suffer great pain knowing that the University was named after a known 17th century slave trader and that Ezra Stiles, for whom one of the elitist "Residential Colleges" is named also trades slaves. I am appalled at the University's failure to stop senseless, racist, heterocentric, paternalistic, patronizing fund raising.

      Now, for the new name of the University you run. Let's see. I've got it! Hanan Daoud Khalil Ashrawi University! She is Palestinian. Muslim. A woman. And a communist. Wow, that is what, like four PC points without even trying, you know, kind of, sort of!

      RENAME YALE!

    3. Will the university then teach how to be mean, corrupt, and racist?

  4. he Bible was once highly valued in the curriculum of the first universities founded in America. Harvard’s original motto which can be seen in the front room on the third floor of the Harvard Club in New York was “Veritas pro Christo et pro eclessia” (Truth for Christ and the Church). Yale’s motto is “Lux et Veritas” (Light and Truth). Up until the 19th century, knowing Hebrew and ancient Greek was essential to get in to Harvard found in 1636 and Yale founded in 1701. The Congregationalist ministers who founded Yale wanted that “Youth may be instructed in the Arts and Sciences who through the blessing of God may be fitted for Publick employment both in Church and Civil State.” Furthermore, students had to “live religious, godly and blameless lives according to the rules of God’s Word, diligently reading the Holy Scriptures, the fountain of light and truth; and constantly attend upon all the duties of religion, both in public and secret.” In the mid-18th century, approximately two-thirds of the graduates of Yale University went into the ministry.

  7. Alas, we bemoan also Barrie’s, the Doodle, George & Harry’s, Cutlers, Whitlock’s and the New Haven Arena. There “the glory and the glamour accrued to hockey” (RIP bred in The Glen Donald Hall).

  8. No one can really right all the wrongs that were done in the past. We can remove statues, change names and even pay reparations to descendants who weren't the actual victims or we can move on and do better NOW -- I think the course of action is obvious.

  9. Well Connie, it's like this...….screaming over what happened in the past and demanding we wipe history off the face of the planet is way easier than actually doing something that would make the world a better place for those who continue to be disenfranchised by circumstances- or as Voltaire said, "Common sense is not so common." Life is short and the psychotic herds are plentiful. Scary.

  10. Yale itself was named for a slave trader.
