Notes for Graduating Seniors: Greetings!  Thanks to all who attended the Senior Class Reception last week--it was a great turnout!!  Two follow-up notes from the YDS Alumni Office to graduating seniors:

1.  FREE GIFT FROM YDS!  At the reception last week, most of you were able to pick up a free gift from YDS.  If you have not received your framed photograph (photography a la the lovely Jenny Miller!) you are invited to stop by the Alumni Office (2nd floor, north side--ask for Erin) between now & graduation to do so.

2.  GIFT DEADLINE FOR INCLUSION IN COMMENCEMENT PROGRAM Contributions to the Class of 2008 Gift will be accepted up until the end of the fiscal year, June 30th.  HOWEVER, if you are making your gift in honor or in memory of someone and *wish to have this designation included in the Commencement program*, you must make your gift by MAY 15TH, 2008! Gifts will be happily accepted after that point and the honoree or next-of-kin will still be contacted to inform them of your gift designation, but gifts must be made by MAY 15TH in order to be included in the Commencement Program Insert.

3.  GIFT DESIGNATIONS Several people who have *already participated* in the Class Gift have asked whether they can make their gift in honor or memory of more than one individual.  If you would like to acknowledge an additional individual, please email Erin O'Roak (erin.oroak@yale.edu) of the YDS Alumni Office BEFORE MAY 1st, 2008 to make this addition.  Many thanks!  Rachel Lyle, Chair, Class of 2008 Gift

Dr. Ruth at YDS!  Dr Ruth Westheimer will be coming to speak to us at YDS this Monday, April 21 from 11-12 in Niebuhr Hall.  In honor of her good friend and our fellow student Linda Lader, Dr. Ruth has agreed to come talk to us this Monday about whatever questions we may have about sex. We know that 11am-12pm is not the easiest of times for Divinity students, faculty, and staff, but please make sure to come down after chapel and participate in the discussion. It is going to be awesome.  In case you don't know, Dr. Ruth Westheimer is a world renowned psychosexual therapist who helped to pioneer the field of media psychology with her radio program, Sexually Speaking. Check out her website: www.drruth.com for more information.  Please email any questions you may have for her to ydscoalition@gmail.com (avoiding anything medical, she's not a medical doctor). Your questions will be kept anonymous as we ask them to her on Monday. She will also take questions from the floor (if you feel comfortable asking them publicly) and if she can handle Howard Stern, you know she can handle anyone else.

I am already involved up at the Div School (I am a member of the Yale Forum on Faith and Politics and many of my friends are Divinity school students).  I will be here over the summer (working at the Bioethics Center and in hospice care) and I hope to reach people before the semester ends - to generate interest for the group this summer.  Please feel free to ask any questions.  Thank you, Alissa Wassung (alissa.wassung@yale.edu)

Community Living in the Blue House: Interested in living together with other divinity school students in community?  "Blue on Orange" is a div school community house (a blue one, on orange street) started by a group of students a few years ago, and committed to active community living.  The house is currently home to 7 div school students from a variety of different backgrounds, church affiliations and with many different interests.  Community is built around regular house dinners, but much of what it means to live together comes from how each year's residents engage with each other and commit to being part of the community.  Beyond dinners the house will decide together for next year on ideas for other intentional living commitments, such as sharing some food, organizing the common spaces and house prayer.  The Blue House is looking to fill three rooms in next year's house with folks (female or male) interested in living openly and actively together.  If you're interested in learning more about the community, please email justin.haaheim@yale.edu by Monday, April 21st.  Hope to hear from you.  Peace and blessings,  The folks at Blue on Orange  Meghan Young, Justin Haaheim, Christina McRorie, Sandra Valdez-Lopez, Travis Weber, Cambry Pardee and Choron Ryan

Soccer Coach Needed: YDS family seeks athletic individual to assist with teenage daughter's soccer training:  We are looking to hire someone at typical Yale work-study rates (exact pay rate will depend on experience and recommendations) to work with our 15 y.o. daughter three to four afternoons per week (Tuesday through Friday, approx. 4:15p - 5:15p)to help her in working on her soccer ball handling skills and to give her some assignments for her training on other days.  She is an enthusiastic learner and very eager to improve her skills to prepare for next season.  We live relatively close to the campus, just over half a mile from YDS and about half a mile from Payne Whitney Gym.    We do not need a professional trainer, but hope to find someone who has some experience playing soccer and so has some knowledge about foot work and other relevant skills.  She is ready to begin right away. If you are interested, please e-mail me at michele@cumming.com.  Thanks!
