Lucky numberLast week, the one-thousandth student applied for one of TUD’s Master of Science degree programmes. The TUD awarded lucky number 1,000, Zhangh Yu from Wuhan (China), with 5,900 euros, which is the equivalent of one year of tuition.

This September, Zhang Yu will study management of technology at the TU%s faculty of Technology, Policy and Engineering. But first Yu must complete his Bachelor’s degree in computer science and technology at Huazhong University.

Harvard

Harvard is going to raise its tuition fees by 5.5 percent. It’s the biggest raise in ten years, and the university says it’s necessary due to higher costs and the poor performance of the US economy. For the academic year starting next September, one year of study at Harvard University will cost $37,928, compared to $35,950 this year. This fee includes housing and food. The actual academic tuition fee (less housing and food) is $26,066. At Harvard, two thirds of all students receive scholarships, grants, loans, or other forms of financial aid. Harvard has a fund with a 100 million dollar annual budget that it uses to provide some students with financial aid.

Corps members damage control box DTO

In their efforts to transform the old TBM building into a Lustrum-worthy party paradise, members of the Lustrum committee of the student society Delftsch Studenten Corps roughly removed a glass fibre control box at DTO (TU Delft’s technical support department). The result: for one day all phone and data lines were down at Museum of Technology depot and at some smaller companies nearby. ,,The damage is fairly minor,” says Dunet manager Rico de Stefano of DTO. Another ‘victim’, Rob Korving, depot manager at the Museum of Technology is more cynical: ,,Luckily, corps members who live in the building had to do without Internet too. Maybe that will improve their study results?”

Calvin Klein

‘One’. Can you still smell it? Calvin Klein realized that its perfume was passé.What to do next? Calvin’s perfume department asked the advertising agency Baron & Baron to restyle its perfume. Baron & Baron then asked former Industrial Design Engineering (IO) student and graffiti artist Boris Tellegen (alias ‘Delta’), and two street artists from New York, to restyle the perfume bottle. Graffiti artists often use an alias, a relic from the past when as street graffiti artists they would illegally paint on buildings, walls, etc. ,,Why do I call myself Delta? Well, when I was 13 years old I saw the Greek letter D. I thought it’d be cool to have a name from the alphabet,” says Tellegen, alias Delta, who has his own design studio in Amsterdam. He has designed record covers, snowboards and magazine covers.
