Exams Be Damned: Bulldogs Had Better Not Pout, Better Not Cry

Joelreen_santa

The Bullblog indicates that Yalies have Santa fever. Yale is stuck somewhere between a lump of coal and a stocking full of chocolate and a new Xbox on the “Christmas glee” scale. They’ve got both brands.

NICE: A giant Santa hat disrupting the Microeconomics exam.

NAUGHTY: The slightly more sinister Santacon bringing drunken, loutish Fathers Christmas to the streets of New Haven.

As end of semester distractions go, this beats Columbia’s Orgo night—advertised this year with fliers promising attendees camera time in Spider-Man 4—but still can’t quite measure up to naked, careening Harvard men. Is it Christmas break yet?

    “but still can’t quite measure up to naked, careening Harvard men.”

    That’s what we have the naked library run for. I mean, not nearly as big or crazy as the Harvard thing seems to be, but it involves nudity and the beginning of finals, and then the naked runners hand out candy to everyone in CCL, so it works for me.

    I’m pretty sure no one who graduated/ will graduate in this century calls it CCL.

    annnnd I’m pretty sure you’re wrong. keep in mind that it WAS CCL until partway through the 07-08 school year, which means that anyone who graduated/will graduate from 01-11 has been at Yale pre-’Bass’.. and anyone up until the class of ’14 will have fro-cos that could call it CCL as well. (I’m ’11 and I call it CCL because my fro-co ‘introduced’ it to us as that, as it wasn’t opened as Bass until after the year had started.)

    Oh CCL. Neon lighting, grey interiors, leaky ceilings, crazy-colored furniture… Such fond memories. The whole Bass thing doesn’t do it for me – so nice and comfortable that you’ll fall asleep instead of studying your ass off.
