A lot was touched upon tonight and TONS of students showed up in comparison to other town hall meetings. Issues that were brought up at tonights meeting include: sexism and homophobia on campus, the counseling service on...
Jonathan Kozol Speaks Tomorrow
For anyone who’s ever taken an education class at Vassar, the name Jonathan Kozol stands out. One of the leading voices for the “savage inequalities” of the American education system, Mr. Kozol will be speaking in the Vassar Chapel tomorrow (November 3) at 5:30 pm. We’re not sure how well publicized the event has been, but this is a pretty incredible chance to hear...
Davison Faces Slurs Once More
Many students staying caught up on their Vassar controversies will remember the homophobic messages sprawled over a Davison bathroom earlier this semester. Horrified by the anti-gay messages, the Davison house team went well above and beyond to assure its residents that homophobia was not a sentiment to be normalized or encouraged. Their efforts included hosting an open discussion about the issue...
Changes in ResLife Practices: A Danger to Campus?
So… we’re not sure if any of you checked your e-mail this week, but what we all received from Luis Inoa was a little disturbing. In case you didn’t read the cute little italicized comment on the bottom of the e-mail it reads: …you should be aware that a logical consequence of causing a disruption along the lines of an unauthorized party in the houses may be reassignment...
State of Emergency Lifted, Dutchess County Still...
As of 12 pm today, the State of Emergency has been lifted in Dutchess County, but warnings about safety remain in place. Power lines, fallen trees, and non-operating traffic lights are some of the issues mentioned in a forwarded message from Dean Roellke this just a little while ago. Several parts of the county have been left without power, but road crews are making their best efforts to...
Well, if you’re looking around campus today you will probably notice that campus looks more hungover than you do. Aside from the fire alarm pulled in Main Building, rumored to have occurred on 5th floor, the Haunted Hollow presented by the Class of 2012 seemed to go swimmingly well. Students still made it out of their dorms (unless lucky enough to live in Main) to celebrate the holiday....
BREAKING NEWS • Dutchess County is now in a State...
As of now, Dutchess County is in a state of emergency. Events in UpC and Villard Room are still moving forward. Power loss is a very possible outcome before the night ends. Too much of this event mirrors the panic and fear that hit campus during Hurricane Irene for our comfort. Stay safe! yV
Snowball Fight: 9 PM Tonight!
We’ve heard through the grapevine that tonight at 9 PM there will be a GIANT snowball fight on the Quad. Hope to see you there!
Vassar's Halloween Costume: Winter
In case none of you noticed, its SNOWING. A lot. Looks like Vassar is trying to disguise itself tonight, too. Here’s hoping that tonight’s events don’t get put on hold! On a side note, our followers and hits have been skyrocketing (thanks to someone’s post on Say Anything, we guess) and we’re almost at 500 in just a few days! You’re the best, guys! Happy...
SAVP Coordinator Position Finally to be Re-Filled,...
For almost three years, the Sexual Assault Violence Prevention Coordinator position has remained empty, despite an agreement by the College to continue funding the job once a grant from the Department of Justice ran out. Since then, numerous individuals and campus groups have prodded the administration to refill the much-needed position, especially since the coordinator’s duties were split...
Security in Strong, Not Strong Enough?
I think most of campus (if you have not you should be a little ashamed) has heard of the incident in Strong that occurred earlier this year, in fact over a month ago. But why is it now that the Miscellany News is reporting about this? Not that we are claiming to have reported it before the Misc [we love the Misc], but that is because we’re just starting up here. What we’re reporting...
HALLOWEEN COMES TO VASSAR
…and the world, but Vassar’s what we care about. Vassar’s Halloween weekends have traditionally been a campus spectacle over the years, and this one should be no exception. We’ll see the festivities beginning on Friday night with SCARY TALES, the annual haunted house put on by Raymond House. The event will take place on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Rocky from 8 pm – 11 pm and...
BREAKING NEWS • ViCE Fall Concert Announcement
Well the time of the year has arrived: ViCE has yet again unveiled a series of musical artists that no one has ever heard of. With that, we have high hopes for this show— many an unknown artists have gone on to put on great performances at VC. After much anticipation (and people rumoring that Arcade Fire was coming), ViCE broke the news on WVKR this afternoon. The artists for this years...
Welcome to yourVassar, the new unofficial voice of Vassar College. We are here to revitalize the online news community at Vassar College.

Although it is a tad late, welcome back to Vassar everyone, this year is bound to...
