Yale’s SCSY Lives Up to its Name

by Sabrina on October 9, 2012

Crisis came to New Haven as delegates from 32 schools and three continents descended upon Yale University for the 35th session of the Security Council Simulation at Yale.  Four stimulating days of dynamic crises and animated debate pushed Yale’s dedicated Crisis Staffers to their limits, keeping delegates on edge with fast-paced crisis developments.

After rescuing the Chilean miners, reanimating the dead, and bringing the entire galactic empire back from the brink of disaster, and dying from a worldwide pandemic of Aligot drug, delegates put the parallel world on pause to ring in the weekend at SCSY’s acclaimed late-night events.

This year the SCSY team engaged in a series of video crisis updates, both prepared prior to the conference as well as in the midst of it. The vast majority of committees had the pleasure of witnessing Yale’s acting talents, an endeavor the Secretariat is planning on maintaining and expanding in years to come.

Another point of pride at this 35th edition of SCSY is the international diversity of attending delegations. This year, Yale campus welcomed delegates from all corners of the world

When the gavel came down and SCSY XXXV wrapped up, delegates and staff alike heartily applauded as a fitting tribute to a very SCSY weekend!

Congratulations to all delegates! Only time will tell if the following delegation awards set the tone for the MUN season to come …

  • Best Large: University of Pennsylvania
  • Outstanding Large: Georgetown University
  • Best Small: United States Military Academy at West Point
  • Outstanding Small: Clark University
