  • Scholarship Description
  • Born and raised in Long Beach, Marion (Mimi) Deatherage practiced law and loved the game of golf. She attended Wilson High School, and obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering from the University of Colorado before attending Southwestern School of Law. After graduation from Southwestern, she joined her father's law office. During the seventeen years she spent practicing law, Mimi found time to engage her passion for the game of golf. Members of Virginia Country Club dedicated their 2005 golf fund raising event to Mimi, a fellow member who broke ground for women at Virginia by becoming its first female member in 1994. Mimi's passion was golf, and members thought it appropriate to create a scholarship supporting an aspiring law student who reflects Mimi's dedication to the practice of law and to her great love of golf.

September 19, 2017

by Susan Dutca

In an effort to modernize, Yale will no longer use the terms "freshman" and "underclassmen" and will instead adopt gender-neutral terminology, such as "first-year" and "upper-level students." University officials still anticipate students and faculty to use the old terminology, since they're "deeply ingrained in our everyday language and in Yale's history."

The new terminology can be found in the Undergraduate Regulations and the First-Year Handbook and is expected to appear in all Yale College's publications and communications by the start of the 2018-2019 academic year. The effort to phase out the older terminology is "a piece of a larger movement to reflect the diversity of college campuses" and also in part because the "two words in particular are gendered," according to Jennifer Keup, Director Of the National Resource for the First-Year-Experience and students in Transition.
