Bulldog Buzz Week of 4/25: Last Buzz! :(

College Days Multiple colleges celebrated their College Days last week, include Timothy Dwight, Trumbull, Berkeley, and Pierson. Students relived their childhood days with inflatable obstacles courses and slides, played games, and basked in the sun.  Pierson had an epic Jell-O Wrestling match, which started between Dean Fabbri and Master G and escalated to a free-for-all among Piersonites… and some people who weren’t in Pierson (ahem Trumbull crashers).

Controversial immigration bill passes in Arizona.

Spring Fling is for Lovers: A Musical Alternative to the Ying Yang Twins, featuring music by Juliet Buesing, Tina Colon, and J Prophet, will take place in the Trumbull courtyard or the Af-Am House (rain) during and as a protest against the performance of the Ying Yang Twins at Spring Fling tomorrow. The inclusion of the Twins in the Spring Fling line-up sparked various degrees of outrage across campus due to their explicit, misogynistic and all-around offensive lyrics.

Numerous security guards were stationed at the entrances to old campus in preparation for Spring Fling to check people’s student ID’s when they entered and to ensure that no one was trying to smuggle in alcohol for the event. Various people report being accosted by security even though they were merely returning to their dorms on old campus. Entrances through LC and the post office, however, remained unguarded.

About Catherine Dinh

My name is Catherine Dinh. I'm a freshman in Pierson. I'm from Fremont, which is in the Bay Area, California. I am considering majoring in English or Psychology. I enjoy reading, writing, watching movies with friends, shopping, graphic design, taking walks, eating, imagining, and learning new things. I'm a member of ViSA and TAS, but I joined the APA blog because I wanted to reach out to more of the Asian American community here at Yale. In short, I hope this blog will be a huge success and am looking forward to seeing it grow.
