Michael B. Broukhim ’07
Editorial chair
Drew Gilpin Faust becomes president of Harvard and renames it Radcliffe. Harvey C. Mansfield says Harvard has lost its “manliness” and bemoans “the rule of the less wise over the more wise.”



Matthew S. Meisel ’07
Editorial chair
Now that Harvard has official plans to house undergrads in Allston, the Quad will secede from the University and be annexed by Canada. Curling, anyone?



Piotr C. Brzezinski ’07
Associate editorial chair
Announcing his return via a CUE reminder e-mail, Larry Summers inspires skyrocketing student participation, as well as a subsequent faculty CUE boycott led by Judith Ryan—and suddenly the January Faculty meeting is reinstated.

Associate editorial chair
The Curricular Review will be completed.



William C. Marra ’07
Guest predictor: President
