Feature stories:

Should the Bowl Be Bulldozed?

Once the best in the world, many of Yale’s major athletic facilities are outdated and oversubscribed. The university is pressing forward with repairs and looking into how the financial burden might be shared with other users.


From Bedside to Biotech

Gerard Burrow knows as much about research as he does about caring for patients. As the new dean of the School of Medicine, he will be trying to bridge the traditional gap between those two areas, while expanding Yale’s position in biotechnology.


Cole Porter, College Man

From “Bull Dog” to “Begin the Beguine,” the songs of Cole Porter have become landmarks of American musical tradition. The discovery of several notebooks he kept as an undergraduate offers a unique glimpse of Yale life before the First World War.
