QuadTalk, a new initiative aimed at expanding mental health resources to Harvard’s Radcliffe Quad, opened its doors Sunday night in the basement of Pforzheimer House.
Results of a recent Crimson survey indicate that most students are generally satisfied with House resources, although they may not be involved with their residences day-to-day.
According to House Masters Richard Wrangham and Elizabeth Ross, the change is an “attempt to make easier the challenges of living in the quad.”
The former Dunster resident tutor was widely regarded as an ally to BGLTQ students in the House but was not asked back to the position last spring.

<p>It’s not a secret that Currier is often considered in the bottom of housing– it’s in the Quad, its dining hall is often compared to a “retirement home,” and it doesn’t have the classic Harvard look. However, Currier is a very unique house with a cohesive community, in fact, it has the smallest population of any house. Currier is also frequently ranked the highest among Harvard dining halls in terms of food quality. So when people clad in green swimsuits storm your dorm chanting “Fear the tree,” there may actually be a few reasons to get excited.</p>
The email included explicit language and sexual references addressed to another student in the House whose account had recently sent a short message over the list referencing Currier’s Ten-Man suite.
