Welcome back, Jumbos! It’s going to be quite the week, so let’s keep abreast of what’s happening on campus.
IN NEWS: Tufts Community Union (TCU) Senate on Nov. 17 unanimously passed a resolution calling for late-night dining options in the Dewick-MacPhie or Carmichael Dining Hall between the hours of 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. As a result of the resolution, the Commons Deli and Grill will accept the meal plan on Friday and Saturday evenings as of next semester.
IN FEATURES: On Friday, President Obama paid a visit to activists who have been fasting on the National Mall for weeks in an effort to move progress on an immigration reform overhaul. On the Hill, a new student group called United for Immigrant Justice (UIJ) has sprung into action this semester to reinvigorate the discussion of these issues on campus.
IN ARTS: Simulcast in 94 different countries and in more than 1,500 theaters to millions of viewers around the world, the BBC’s “Doctor Who” 50th Anniversary special, “The Day of the Doctor,” was an absolutely spectacular treat for the show’s dedicated fans. This record-breaking special has certainly earned its place as one of the greatest science fiction episodes of all time.
IN SPORTS: After a successful season opener against BU in mid-November, the Tufts men’s squash team has struggled to find its stride. Prior to Thanksgiving break, the Jumbos played MIT before taking on Bowdoin, Brown and Bryant a few days later on Nov. 23. The Jumbos kept the match close against MIT and Bryant but fell decisively against the rest of the field.
