Professor David J. Malan lectures on the role of the binary number system in computer science at the first CS50 lecture of the school year in Sanders Theater.
Much as we love to display the (many) ways Yale cannot (and will never) match up to Harvard, you can’t begrudge the incredible opportunity at Hirschhorn’s disposal.
I roll out of bed at 8:45 on game day (you know, The Game), ready to document the event for posterity. First stop: the pancake breakfast in Annenberg to meet up with my fellow game-day warriors. We then head to a sad pregame in a freshman dorm. The theme of the pregame is “Too many Cooks.” Libations are poured to Smarf, the picaresque anti-hero of the 11 minute video. I’m offered some alcohol. I don’t take it for reasons of journalistic integrity, obviously.
Harvard’s approval was the final step necessary for a joint Harvard-Yale CS50 venture, which was first reported in The Crimson in October and approved by Yale faculty in early November.
The interuniversity trade routes between Yale and Harvard opened earlier this month by the proclamation of CS50’s export to Yale College, which is in Connecticut. This is no small step. CS50 is the best bioweapon we have engineered. With its t-shirts and free stuff, we are hopeful that it will divide the Yale campus into two groups: those who wear the “I took CS50” T-shirts, and those who do not. But this export should not be the last one by any means. FM considers other authentic items that Harvard has to offer to this time-honored rival for its betterment:
Hi, Yale friends. It can be hard navigating the Harvard social scene (though not as hard as navigating the New Haven crime scene). FM came up with some tips that should help you have a good time after The Game.
Last year, On Harvard Time surprised Yale with a wildly successful YouTube prank appropriately titled “Harvard Tours Yale.” This year, vigilante Yalies were not so unsuspecting.
Establishments in Harvard Square and throughout the U.S. look to Harvest as a leader in the local food movement.
The course proposal was already approved on Oct. 16 by Yale’s Course of Study Committee for a three-year trial period, but the vote at the monthly faculty meeting officially completes the approval process on Yale’s end.
If approved, Yale's proposal to adopt a version of CS50 could lay the foundation for a new model of inter-university curricular partnerships in an era of institutional experimentation with online education.
If the proposal is approved, Malan’s CS50 lectures would be streamed to Yale, where an on-the-ground instructor and support staff will hold standard sections and office hours, according to Yale Computer Science Department head Joan Feigenbaum.
Throughout the month of August, both The Crimson and the YDN, the daily student newspaper at Yale, surveyed incoming students about their backgrounds, interests, and future plans.
