Feature stories:

The Patriarch

Vincent Scully '40, '49PhD, is controversial, combative, the consummate insider but a fighter by nature. He is one of the most influential voices in architecture today—and maybe the greatest lecturer Yale has ever seen.


Lux et Privacy

A public defender makes a Freedom of Information Act request, and suddenly Yale’s campus police force finds itself the center of a debate about the meanings of “public” and “private.”


Your Dream College Here

Undergraduate life at Yale is built around the residential college. What would you do differently if you could build a new college from scratch? With two new colleges likely in Yale’s future, it’s a good time to ask.
