Harvard Today: April 14, 2014

Happy Monday, Harvard!

We hope you had an excellent weekend, and a fabulous time at Yardfest. Semi-Serious, Hot Breakfast, and most of all, the incredible Janelle Monáe absolutely rocked it (in our objective opinion), and hopefully that put all of you in a great mood for the upcoming week.

 IN THE ATMOSPHERE
Today’s high is 77 degrees! There’s a 10% chance of rain, and it’ll probably be windy, but any of that matter? It’ll be 77 degrees!



IN THE D-HALLS
Lunch:
Maple and Chipotle Chicken
Pork Sausage Sub with Peppers and Onions
African Jollof Rice with Seitan

Dinner:
Roast Turkey Breast
Five Cheese Tortellini with Spinach and Mushroom
