Beyonce’s new song, “***Flawless” samples Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TEDx talk “We should all be feminists.” 
Adichie received her masters degree in African Studies from Yale in 2008—the same year she was awarded a MacArthur Genius Grant. 
Just another way Queen Bey is connected to this Blue Ivy.

This is excellent.

Hey Yale 2017, welcome to Yale! As freshmen, most of you will be settling into the freshman halls on Old Campus, but here’s a look at your residential colleges, which you’ll move into in your sophomore year. Enjoy!

Sillman College Facts:

1) Silliman College won the intramural Tyng Cup (which is awarded for excellence in intercollege intramural games) in 2006, 2007, and 2008, making it one of the only colleges to claim the prize three years in a row.

2) Every single Yale residential college has facilities such as libraries, dining halls, and libraries, but each also college has something special that sets it apart. Silliman is the only college with its own movie theater, called Silliflicks. Sillamanders are able to reserve the theater to watch movies with friends.

This intense cover of David Guetta’s “She Wolf” comes by way of student pop/rock a cappella group and International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella finalists, Yale Out of the Blue.

Yale has a long tradition of a cappella singing, going all the way back to the founding of the Whiffenpoofs in 1909. There’re no less than 18 a cappella groups on campus covering a diverse range of musical styles - everything from to jazz to traditional slavic music.

Branford College at Yale University

A bit of Yale lore: judging from where this photo was taken, the photographer is probably standing on the stone circle that you encounter when you enter from the courtyard from the right.
The thing about that stone circle is that legend has it if you stand on it, you don’t graduate. While this is highly unlikely, some Yalies carefully step around it whenever they walk by. Just to be on the safe side, you understand.
The more you know, etc.

Wish I hadn’t avoided the stone….
