Harvard Today: March 7, 2014


It’s Friday! You're almost done with midterms and there's just one week left until sweet, sweet freedom. You can do this!

Start off your weekend by checking out some of the Housing Day videos that have been released so far: WinthropQuincy, Pfoho, Dunster, Cabot, and (kind of) LeverettLowell, and Adams. If you’re a freshman, you can obsess and fall in love with something that will most likely never love you back (story of our lives, am I right?!), and if you’re an upperclassmen, you can loudly promote your own house’s video while secretly admiring all the others. It’s okay, everyone does it. No matter your year, make sure to check out Flyby’s profiles of all the houses over the next week for a fun and thorough evaluation!
