I. Trash Rooms
 
Morse College has trash rooms in the basement level floors of entryways E, H, and I. Students should deposit all trash and recycling in these rooms, NOT in the courtyard trash receptacles. Leaving trash in the courtyard trashcans, stairwells, or hallways of the college can and will result in fines for the responsible party. Please use the trash rooms provided and keep Morse’s common property free of your personal garbage.
******************************************************************
II. Security
 
It has unfortunately come to our attention that Morse’s security has been somewhat lax lately. Please do not prop your doors open, and do not let unauthorized persons into the courtyard or building.
******************************************************************
III. Return Dishes to the Dining Hall
 
Please return any dishes you have taken from the dining hall.
******************************************************************
IV. Morse Bike Racks, Stickers for IDs and Bikes
 
Morse has several designated bike racks to park bikes. Please park your bike at one of these racks. Any bike not parked on a bike rack will be subject to removal. All bikes kept in the college must have a Morse sticker as well.  Please come to the Master’s Office ASAP to get a bike sticker if you do not already have one. All Morsels must also have a Morse sticker on their Yale ID, also available in the Master’s Office

Our Math/Science Tutor is Francisco Munoz
 
Tutor Hours: Tuesday 8 – 11 PM & Wednesday 7 – 9 PM in the Guard House study located near our front gate.

VI. Smoking Area
 
Smoking is not permitted anywhere in Morse except for the smoking area. The smoking area is behind the hammock near the Sabbath gate. There is a bench and an ashtray there. Please refrain from smoking elsewhere in the Morse Courtyard.
******************************************************************
VII. No Food or Drink allowed in the Underground Common Spaces
 
There is no food or drink allowed in the Underground area. The Underground includes the Slipper Tunnel , the Sunken Courtyard, gym, theater, fiber arts studio, recording studio, the practice rooms, the computer cluster and the hallways that connect them. Please respect the spaces and the need to keep them clean of food stuff and clean of the nasty pests or the rodent and insect variety that are looking for crumbs.

IX. Yale Investments Office Opportunity
 
Are you excited by the prospect of traveling the world and meeting equity managers, wind farm owners, venture capitalists, and hedge funds?  Are you intellectually curious, analytical, and personable?
 
The Yale Investments Office, which manages the nearly $24 billion Yale Endowment, is seeking analysts who answer yes to any of the above questions.  Past and current analysts possess varied academic backgrounds – we’ve hired natural science, social science, humanities, and engineering majors.  We look for intelligent students eager to attack new challenges and work for a meaningful cause.  Over the last 20 years, the Yale Endowment has contributed $12 billion to the University’s operating budget, contributions that have enabled Yale to maintain its place as a world-class haven for aspiring students, brilliant professors, and cutting edge research.  Working to generate these billions of dollars for the University is the Yale Investments Office staff, which, over the same 20 year period, has produced the highest annualized returns of any college endowment (and better returns than Warren Buffett).
