Be a Yalie - and host a student on the night of the national round (18 April).
The motion for YHD 2014 has been decided.
Globalization diminishes the significance of ethnicity.
वैश्वीकरण में जातीय सांस्कृतिक पहचान का महत्व कम हो जाता है|
Come see it be debated - defended staunchly or torn apart - in the Luce Hall Auditorium, on 4 April (Prelim) and 18 April (National), at 6 pm.
Couldn't make it to the information session, but still interested in participating? Happens all the time, doesn't it! Never fear. Below, you can go through the slides from the session. Contact us if you're interested in participating, or if you have any questions that need answering. Hope to hear from you!
Info session tonight! 8pm, CLS (Dow Hall, 370 Temple Street).
The cat just wasn't enough. If you stepped out today, then this was you:
No matter how cold it gets, we sure can extend a warm welcome to our friends from warmer climes on the day of the national round. Who's on the list this year? Well, you'll have to wait to find out...
Congrats to all the Yalies that braved the storm today. If you weren't among the lucky few who had their classes cancelled, then you know exactly what this feels like:
"Oh my! That poster sure is bold! I must follow its directions to a tee (for it is bold)."
4 April . 18 April . 6pm . Luce Hall Auditorium
Otherwise you will need consoling.
The first Indian Miss America, Nina Davuluri, spoke to Yale on 4 February, 2014, at Battell Chapel. She spoke candidly about her past, and the backlash she received - first as Miss New York, and later, as Miss America. As articulate as she is beautiful, Nina addressed matters including beauty, race, religion, and even dating.
Listening to her, one can't help but think about ethnicity in the context of a globalized world - where distances between people are shrinking, while barriers between them continue to persist. For the Yale Hindi Debate, the mixing of cultures is of paramount significance. Perhaps YHD 2014 could debate this issue. We haven't decided on a topic yet - and this certainly seems ripe with potential.

Well, why not?!
Now that's just silly.
Come one, come all!
2013-14. They're making history. Go to 'people' to contact them.
The first poster for the 2014 debate is ready to take the campus notice boards by storm! Much like flowers, it will be up as the Spring semester starts. Is that why it's so colorful?
