Anderson Cooper '89 returned to campus on April 22 to receive the Yale Undergraduates’ Lifetime Achievement Award. The Yale College Council (YCC) and the President’s Office established the award last year with the goal of bringing prominent college alumni back to campus to interact with undergraduates both en masse and in smaller, more intimate settings. Cooper was honored for his lengthy career in journalism, establishing himself as a celebrated voice in international media.
