Harvard Today: March 24, 2014

Happy Monday, Harvard, and welcome back from Spring Break!

Whether you spent the break on a sunny beach, on the slopes, curled up in bed watching Netflix, or one of the many other types of spring breaks, we’re sure it’s tough to come back to campus and start going to classes again. Fortunately, there are some amazing things to look forward to, including warmer weather, later T hours, and YardFest in a few short weeks. And before you get too depressed by the return to a HUDS-centric diet, be sure to check out some of the offerings during Boston’s Restaurant Week. See, the big return doesn’t have to be too bad. You’re going to make it.

IN THE ATMOSPHERE

Today will be sunny but chilly, with a high of 32 and a low of 22. Weather gods, if you’re listening, we’d love some spring weather right about now.
