Feature stories:

Back to the BAC

After a year-long $4.3 million “facelift,” the Center for British Art reopened its doors to the public with a smashing exhibit of work by Henry Moore, Lucian Freud, and Francis Bacon. The “new” BAC features a restored roof, a refurbished interior, and a reconfigured collection.


A Very Special Saloon

As the “place where Louis dwells” celebrates its 150th anniversary—a bit early, but who’s counting?—its members and governors strive to “keep Mory’s Mory’s” in a fast-changing world.


Some Freshman Perspectives

Pollsters, pundits, and alumni loyalists may rank Yale College No. 1, but how do the “customers&rdqip; feel these days? In search of clues, we asked four members of the newest class, 2002, how it’s going after six months on the campus. The students come from very different backgrounds, and all are exploring widely varied and highly demanding programs, both academically and extra-curricularly. They seem to like what they find.
