The Reading, Of Course

Even at Harvard, one of the most intellectual institutions in the world, few students read as much as they should.

Freeing Prisoners for Political Gain

For our system to work, the fundamental principle must be that criminals will be equally and appropriately punished for their crimes regardless of who they are. Justice needs to be applied both blindly and uniformly.

Monomania: Now What?

When I turned in my thesis last month, the world seemed to exhale deeply. A great monomania had evaporated, leaving a gaping hole that one’s supposed to think of as room to explore. And yet aside from the standard-grade senioritis, I found myself at a loss for what to do with my freedom.

Macondo on the Mind

Vonnegut lampooned the world’s absurdity for me, Fuentes laid the sometimes-sordid foundations of power bare to me, but Gabriel García Márquez taught me how to dream.

400 Years a Slave

I will not equate the injustices of slavery with that of current prisons’—doing so trivializes and understates the horrors of the slavery system. It is important, however, to acknowledge the weight that slavery held in shaping the current mass incarceration.

The Meaning of 'Boston Strong'

The Diversity Report

The time is now for the University to recommit to fostering a more supportive campus. This fall, the most racially diverse class of freshman in Harvard’s history will arrive at our gates. We cannot let these students down.

'Leading in Learning'

I’m sure that all of these proposals reflect well-developed and thoughtful plans on the part of Harvard University. But in my four years here, the rigidity of Harvard’s furniture has never seemed a major roadblock to my learning experience. In fact, I have had little to no interaction with technology in the classroom.
