Hey prefrosh, this one's for you. You're obviously smart enough to get into Harvard, but are you smooth enough to pass as a current student? Here are some key terms to help you sound like a true Harvardian during Visitas. Study the words and phrases below before you get to campus and no one will ever know you're a prefrosh.
Anns (Annz): The freshman dining hall (short for Annenberg).
The Crab: The most poorly named, yet exclusive finals club on campus.
The Facebook: It's not just Facebook here. Note our tribute to Zuckerberg's original concept.
"I'm getting a Froyo to go-yo 'cause yolo": What students say when they get a frozen yogurt to go from the dining halls.
The Rad: The Radcliffe Quadrangle. Really far away, prefrosh probably won't end up there.
Owl me: What students say instead of "text me". We're pretty big Harry Potter fans here.
Ochios: The late-night pizza stop, whose official name is Pinocchio's.
Roach Row: The nickname for the upperclassmen Houses that border the Charles River, named so because of the high number of roaches.
Swipies: The Harvard IDs we use to swipe into buildings.
Wagons: An endearing name for our shuttle system, which has routes running all over campus from Anns to the Rad to Roach Row.
