Greek Life Timeline

Though Final Clubs, fraternities, and sororities are long-standing staples of the Harvard social scene, their presence is anything but static. Last year, sorority Alpha Phi set down its roots in Cambridge, while fraternity Kappa Sigma reinstated its Harvard chapter last week after an eighty-year hiatus. FM digs into the archives to create a chronology of Harvard’s dynamic Greek life.

Food, Frats, Sex, and Malia Obama

The quick and dirty about what's been going on around the Ancient Eight (and other schools too). Students at Columbia have been over-indulging on Nutella lately, and it’s turned into quite the hot topic. While reports originally claimed the university spent $5000 in a week on the stuff, the figure has now been reduced to a more modest $2500. Apparently students have been filling cups full of Nutella, or just taking full jars back to their rooms, meaning around 100lbs was disappearing each week. Lucky for students, there are no plans to take away the delicious hazelnut treat any time in the future, leaving us at Flyby extremely jealous but also kind of relieved we don’t have easy access to unlimited Nutella. That 100lbs has to go somewhere, guys…
