This week’s news in opinionated little graphs and figures
Why write when you can draw?
The search for the next SEAS dean [Story]
Dean Goldfarb has a rapport with faculty that Peña-Mora never had. However, Goldfarb’s presence in the undergraduate community is badly lacking. He transferred undergraduate student affair responsibilities to SEAS vice dean Soulaymane Kachani and he has yet to attend an ESC meeting. Three questions:
1) Has Goldfarb participated in a single undergraduate event aside from the class of ’13 reception?
2) Has Goldfarb been interviewed more than zero times in a Spec article since he became dean?
3) Do more than five percent of non-IEOR majors in SEAS know what Goldfarb looks like?
No, no, and no.
The Barnard pool is closing [Story]
254 dollars—that’s the amount of money every Barnard student would have to pay for the next five years to keep the pool open. You can frame the pool closing as a sign the administration isn’t prioritizing wellness, or you can frame the move as a tuition cut of $254 per student for a resource at most 20 percent of Barnard uses. That’s good money management.
The 114th St. Brownstones are up for grabs [Story]
This chart does not represent the groups I hope the Brownstone Committee picks. If I got to choose, I would go with Alpha Chi Omega, Psi Upsilon, and ADI. But, I don’t get to choose so here’s my rationale behind the above graph.
Of the four current panhellenic sororities, Alpha Chi Omega is the only sorority without a brownstone. With two new sororities coming in, I think, by far, the fairest and most politically correct move would be to give Alpha Chi Omega a brownstone.
As for the “drug bust” fraternities, one of them had been on probation prior to the drug bust. That fact, plus this reasoning, plus the fear of a misguided article from the New York Post, makes me believe that (unfortunately in my opinion) neither AEPi, Pike, nor Psi Upsilon will get its brownstone back.
Mikey Zhong is wondering if there are any good “what font is that” apps. This post was inspired by this.
