Sometimes, clichés are accurate: midterms are indeed a pain in the neck.

After hunching in front of laptops and straining over textbooks, everyone could use a tender touch. Tomorrow in the Junior Common Room in Leverett, 14 lucky House residents will get just that, as they join Dawn E. Slack, a licensed massage therapist from Harvard's Center for Wellness, for cupcakes, Berryline, music, and massages. Spots filled quickly for this program, which the Leverett wellness tutors organized to help ease their students' tensions.So what about the other six thousand or so stressed undergrads who can't attend?  "Sleep and eat well!" advises Leverett wellness tutor Melissa Leger in an email. Not quite as glamorous as a massage, maybe, but your mother told you right.

And you may just have to get that cutie from Leverett to fill you in on what you missed—you know, for your health.
