Eliot House Courtyard View

Eliot

<p>Maybe it is the picturesque views of the Charles River, or the close quarters that inspire a deep sense of solidarity, but for whatever reason, Eliot has consistently been one of the most spirited houses. As one of the original seven houses, Eliot has a rich tradition at the College. Throughout much of the twentieth century, Eliot maintained an exclusive reputation and selected only the most elite members of the student body with an application and interview process. Today, Eliot is beloved by all types of Harvard students. An additional claim to fame: Eliot has been the House most featured on the silver screen, appearing in movies such as Legally Blonde, Love Story, and The Social Network.</p>

Housing Day Shadow: Eliot

The ice crunches beneath my feet as I follow my roommates out into the middle of Eliot courtyard. It’s surprisingly bright out for 6:30 a.m., and some combination of adrenaline and the traditional Housing Day mimosa I consumed in one of the party suites robs the frigid wind of its sting. We stand with our backs to each other and shout at the surrounding walls. “Good morning Eliot! It’s Housing Day! It’s Housing Day! Get up, get up, get up!” We stand still for a moment, watching as lights start to pop on in the windows that line the courtyard. Eliot is waking up.
