A bathroom sink in Massachusetts Hall serves as an anchor for a Divest Harvard banner outside of the building.
Claudia Huang '18, a resident of Massachusetts Hall, watches a Divest Harvard rally from an upper floor of the building. Protesters held a "Faith Day" rally Wednesday morning as part of "Harvard Heat Week."
“The organizers from Divest were fantastic,” said Freshman resident dean for Ivy Yard Michael C. Ranen in an interview. “They reached out to every single one of the students and the proctor assuring them that they would be able to go in and out and offered to meet with them individually before it started.”
As Divest Harvard blocks administrators from accessing offices inside of Mass. Hall, the 14 freshmen who live in the campus’s oldest standing building have tried out a new routine.
While some freshmen say that Advising Fortnight is useful for exploring diverse concentration options, others say events are impersonal and inconveniently scheduled.
Typically held in Boston, the freshman formal for the Class of 2018 will be held in the Science Center Plaza following a banquet in Annenberg on April 29th this year.
The move will mark the first time that Harvard has hosted freshman formal on campus since at least 2007. In the past, the College has hosted the event at hotels throughout Boston.
If you’ve ever wondered exactly what types of people make up the freshman class, look no further:
Although Harvard admits student from around the world and offers generous financial aid to help them get here, some students who matriculate from under-resourced high schools struggle to find their footing once on campus.
Freshmen blocking group submissions were due at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, ending what was—for some—a time of drama and frenzy, despite efforts by freshmen proctors and Peer Advising Fellows to clear up misconceptions and offer advice throughout the process.
With stricter regulations during River Run, Harvard students sometimes resort to hopping the fences of upperclassmen houses, such as those behind Lowell.
