Yale Wiki had a snafu with the web host a while back, and it was down for quiiiite a while.

Curious about What Happened? Or who runs the wiki?

You'll probably notice some things that are out of date. Help fix it?

A gut class is a class that is known to have a light workload, easy grading, or both. Many students take these classes for these reasons. Lists of gut classes are often circulated among undergraduate during shopping period, including among sports teams. Certain classes are often taken by entire teams. Others, especially those in the sciences, are highly demanded by the general student body to fulfill distributional requirements.
