Yale has "Dance Music and Nightlife," New York University has "Occupy Wall Street." The downtown college will offer both an undergraduate- and graduate-level class on the demonstrations in the spring semester, aiming to "explore the history and politics of debt and take a deeper look at the economic crisis the movement is protesting," according to the student newspaper. NYU's own short-lived occupation almost three years ago is basically guaranteed to come up, and not just because of the topless protesters.
