Feature stories:

Library Time

Time and scholarship have taken their toll on the stones and books of the Sterling Memorial Library. With the first phase of a $100 million program of preservation and renovation now under way, the University plans to provide a healthier environment for the nearly 4 million volumes that reside in Yale’s “cathedral of learning.”


Playing for Yale


For those grieving over the decidedly mixed record of Yale teams in recent years, there may be some solace in recalling that in decades past Eli athletes dominated not only the gridiron, but much of the nation’s parlor game industry.


Law Students in Action

The School of Law has long been known for its skills at training future CEOs, powerbrokers, and U.S. presidents, but it is also arguably the best place for students bent on careers in the unglamorous world of helping the less fortunate. And as legions of oppressors—from New Haven landlords to heads of state—have discovered to their discomfort, these students learn by doing.
