Eliot House students tie on their spirit gear before storming the Yard on the morning of Housing Day.
An Eliot House student prepares to storm the Yard on the morning of Housing Day.
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.
The baby squirrel that has been frequenting Kirkland Courtyard of late does not appear to have made any strides in his development of self-dependency. In addition to continued displays of freakish domestication and unnatural levels of comfort around humans, the baby squirrel is now laying claim to backpacks and does not appear to be leaving any time soon.
Local hip-hop and soul artist Shea Rose and her band perform at a concert in the Eliot House courtyard. The concert was arranged as an alternative to the Yardfest concert featuring Tyga.
A small but supportive crowd came out to see local hip hop and soul artist Shea Rose perform at a concert in the Eliot House courtyard Saturday night that began at the same time rapper Tyga took the stage at Yardfest in Tercentenary Theater.
Tyga got you down? You're not alone. Eliot House is hosting an alternative to Yardfest, featuring a performance by the up-and-coming hip hop and soul artist Shea Rose. On Saturday, doors—or gates, rather—to the Eliot courtyard open at 6:30, and Rose goes on at 7:00.
Upperclass students cheer on freshmen as they walk through the house tables.
“If you were going to an LGBT drag party, who would you dress up as?”
The stakes were raised this Housing season, when most Houses put out multiple full-length videos (even if they weren't all official). And since there are still some two-odd hours before the first freshmen will receive their housing assignments - what better way than than to celebrate by rewatching all of the videos of the past weeks?
