Andrew K. - 2009 Resolve To Evolve Scholarship Winner

Scholarships.com: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Andrew K: I’ll have graduated from law school by then, and pursuing a career I’m really not sure about yet at this juncture. Maybe I’ll do something in politics. As for law school, I really enjoy the constitutional aspects and the different ways that [the U.S. Constitution] can be interpreted, so I would also be interested in that kind of path.  More...

Yale to Ditch "Freshman", "Upperclassmen", Adopt Gender-Neutral Terms

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.
