Are you a sophomore premed already disenamored with Chem 17? What about a freshman who already failed to finish his first CS 50 problem set even though students receive an extra 10 days this year? If so, have no fear. Though the first Add/Drop deadline has tragically passed, Harvard students still have until the Fifth Monday (October 3) to finalize their course schedules for the fall semester (and even then, why is everyone so scared of the dreaded W?). For the steep price of $10 a course (and the next 60 seconds of your life, which is all Flyby can really ask for at this point), we’ll will give you the lowdown on which courses to pick up to repair your broken semester.
Freshmen in Weld cheer at the Freshman Convocation on Tuesday as their dorm was called and officially welcomed to Harvard.

Freshman Formal quickly approaching (read, it’s tomorrow) and Flyby’s here to help prevent you from making a fool of yourself.
Award season is in full swing at Harvard. In addition to the usual slate of Fulbright and Rhodes scholars, this spring will bring with it a new set of prizes for freshmen, along with a cohort of advising award winners announced Thursday.
Although director Mitch B. Polonsky ’19 and producer Henry M.N. Brooks ’19 agree that “All’s Fair!” prioritizes comedy, the show also looks to highlight the weighty themes of its story. “I want people to be able to walk away and have a new lens for themselves to think about their own dreams and their own expectations and the compromises they’ve had to make in their own lives,” Polonsky says, “and I think [‘All’s Fair!’] provides a framework to do that.”
