WEEK OF 5/1/2023
Believe it or not we are in Reading Week! So this week’s Notes and News will be all about our TD study breaks schedule.
But first our “photo of the week” is from TD senior, Megha Joshi, who shared this great photo of her FroCo group having their final dinner of this year at September in Bangkok!
I also received these photos from Demi Lee ‘24, TD Photography Aide, who took this great picture of last Friday’s TD Day. Please go to this link for more.
Here is our list of study breaks for the next two weeks. All food study breaks take place in the Thompson Room unless otherwise noted:
Monday 5/1 10pm SAC Study Break with Insomnia Cookies
Tuesday 5/2 10pm SAC Study Break with Koon Thai (Thompson Room)
Wednesday 5/3 9:40pm Ten Minute Courtyard Dance Party (Lower Courtyard)

Please note that our TD Aides will serve up pizza every night at 10pm until the last night of finals.
And I will be putting out a new TD Puzzle!!!
Without further ado, here is a word from Dean Mahurin…
If you find yourself half naked
and barefoot in the frosty grass, hearing,
again, the earth’s great, sonorous moan that says
you are the air of the now and gone, that says
all you love will turn to dust,
and will meet you there, do not
raise your fist. Do not raise
your small voice against it. And do not
take cover. Instead, curl your toes
into the grass, watch the cloud
ascending from your lips. Walk
through the garden’s dormant splendor.
Say only, thank you.
DATES AND DEADLINES
||Reading period ends 5:00 p.m.
||Final examinations begin, 7:00 p.m.
||Deadline for all course assignments, other than term papers and term projects. This deadline can be extended only by a Temporary Incomplete authorized by the student’s residential college dean.
||Examinations end, 5:30 p.m.
||Deadline for all term papers and term projects. This deadline can be extended only by a Temporary Incomplete authorized by the student’s residential college dean.
END OF TERM POLICIES
Remember that, in addition to being the last day of exams, May 10 is also the final possible date for the submission of term papers and term projects. Of course, individual instructors may set deadlines for earlier than this date, even as they have full discretion to set deadlines as late as this date. Beyond May 10, coursework may be submitted only with a Temporary Incomplete from me; your instructor cannot set deadlines or issue extensions for beyond May 10, even in graduate or professional school courses. Yale College considers such deadlines and extensions invalid, and the work will not be counted toward your grade.
As with Dean’s Extensions, the Academic Regulations permit Temporary Incompletes in only a limited range of circumstances; contact me right away if you anticipate needing one so that we can discuss your situation. Postponements of scheduled final examinations (via ABX: “All But eXam”) also require my intervention, and may be authorized under the same set of circumstances as Dean’s Extensions and Temporary Incompletes. As always, if you find yourself in any kind of trouble relating to the submission of work or the taking of exams, let me know right away – I’m very happy to consult on these points.
