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.

Housing Day Videos 2013: The Ultimate Roundup

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?
