A Day in the Life…

Calling all Prefrosh! My name is Matthew Tran and I am a freshman in Davenport, which is obviously the best residential college on campus. YDN says so. Even look at freshman Olympics last weekend. What better way to end Freshman Olympics than to OWN EVERY OTHER COLLEGE AND TO TOTALLY HUMILIATE PIERSON BY STEALING THEIR FLAG (we got DQed, but that’s I could go on). Oh I’m sorry you wanted to know about my life? Sorry I thought it was time for FACTS. Davenport greatness aside let me welcome you child-ren into a(n) (a)typical day of a Yalie.

新春快乐!

Happy Year of the Rabbit, everyone! Well, it’s not technically until tomorrow, but many of the “New Year’s Eve” festivities are just as important, and since Asia is nearly a day ahead of us, many of the celebrations are already under way.

Here’s a look at some related events happening for the occasion: Yale Dining brings forth their annual Chinese Lunar New Year Dinner in Commons on Thursday. On Saturday at 7 pm in Woolsey Hall, the Association of Chinese Scholars at Yale is hosting a Chinese New Year’s performance. Organized primarily by international and graduate students, the event is generally poorly advertised among the undergraduate student body. AASA has tried to bring its cultural groups into the mix as well, with “A Taste of Asia”, an all-you-can-eat food event featuring delicacies from different cultures the following week.

So on this holiday welcoming the arrival of a new spring, enjoy the food, remember to give your families a call, and stay dry!
