It's not your home. It's not your work. It's the "Third Space." On Friday, in the basement of Cabot House, a new art space will open. Third Space, the brainchlid of co-founders Sarah A. Moon '15 and Sammy G. Young '15, started out as a simple plan to get a pottery studio in the faraway Quad. But the space opening up tomorrow will be far more than just a pottery studio. "We're really hoping to have a collaborative environment," Young said. "We're hoping that the people who are more experienced will be able to assist and help out those who might be new."

Throughout the history of Flyby House Rankings, Cabot House has been nowhere near the top five. In fact, the House has typically ranked in the bottom two—so what's changed? Not much, as it turns out. After our careful research, it comes down to this—Cabot has simply been underrated. Yes, it's in the Quad. But Cabot's large singles, abundant facilities, beloved House Masters, and overall pleasant atmosphere make it one of the more appealing Houses on campus.
