However, I’m not writing to argue that this was scary because New Haven is dangerous and I’m afraid of it. The case of the broken gates and swipe-door shows that Branford, Yale’s signature college, needs a BAILOUT. AND WE NEED IT NOW.
Branford needs a bailout because two days ago, the toaster oven was completely broken (pictured above). Branford needs a bailout because its Residential College basement is by far the lowest quality residential college basement. Branford needs a bailout because my suite has cold spots from the ghosts of the Class of ’43 who dwell in it. Branford needs a bailout because everything in the dining hall feels like it was just dipped in a vat of maple syrup.
Branford is Yale’s oldest, most picturesque, and signature college. I love it. The people are great. Bail us out.
