R: Yalies Should Go Home

Thursday, December 2nd at 7:30 pm in the Morse Gallery

Please join us for a debate on the ivory tower, home, and the holidays. Does the meritocracy simply encourage us to run away? In American, stable, wealthy families make it easier for their kids to live mobile, career centered lives far away from their families. Why in America do we find such a perverse pattern? Should we support initiatives such as New Haven Promise, which Yale supports, or discourage the "brain drain." Surely, we should all go home for the holidays at least!
