Taking a break from the world’s most pretentious rivalry, the Yale Club of Boston hosted a summer networking party at Harvard’s Fly Club. An extensive wine list from a February 2013 dinner was found in the house, with drinks ranging from a $600 Bordeaux to a $38 Sauterne–for the few poor members who have to live in the real world.
If you’re devastated that you missed the chance to network, fear not! Yale Boston holds its weekly Alumni softball game, every Friday.
What’s he hiding under all those layers?
According to a new interview in Out Magazine, Harvard alum and New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson has 4 tattoos, including a “T” that stands for the prestigious Times newspaper and an “H” for Harvard — the “two institutions that I revere, that have shaped me.”
Quite why Abramson chose to reveal this is a mystery, but it does confirm that Times editors were at least once young and wild. Plus, Abramson shows some class, opting for the simple “H” over a full back portrait of the Harvard skyline.
“And now I feel like shooting myself for spending, like 10 minutes, talking about such a trivial thing.”
We reached out to current Crimson president Samuel Weinstock to ask about his upcoming alma-matter-associated tattoo plans. Perhaps unsurprisingly he declined to comment, saying that he “[didn’t] really have anything to add.” Tattoos and Crimson presidents don’t seem like they mix at any rate. Ah, to be young and wild.

Here’s hoping it saves money for freedom fries.
After weeks of often extremely heated debate amongst students, Dartmouth College administrators finally released a statement responding to demands set out by the “Freedom Budget.”
“Diversity is one of the cornerstones of our academic community,” the statement, written by President Philip J. Hanlon and Interim Provost Martin Wybourne, (and as generic and vague as you can expect from college administrators) read. “We, as the administration, must engage in campus more effectively in current and future actions to achieve our shared vision for Dartmouth.”
Amanda Childress, coordinator of Dartmouth’s Sexual Assault Awareness Program, is facing backlash over comments made earlier in the month where she argued that a sexual assault allegation should be enough to see a student expelled.
Speaking as part of panel on sexual misconduct at the University of Virginia on February 11th, Childress is quoted as asking, “Why could we not expel a student based on an allegation?”
“If we know that a person is reasonably a threat to our community,” Childress said, “why are we not removing them and protecting the safety of our students?”
