Feature stories:

Welcome to Yale, The Restaurant

Roughly 10,000 students swell the campus during the academic year, and they all have to eat. For those who choose the Yale dining halls, the variety is extraordinary, and the quantity is daunting. The challenge for the university is to stay ahead of student tastes without going broke.


Beyond Women’s Studies

After 20 years, it’s not just about women anymore. Renamed women’s and gender studies, the interdisciplinary undergraduate program now encompasses all manner of investigations into questions of gender and sexuality, and not everybody is happy about the changes.
