We already know that Harvard students can't name the capital of Canada, but surely they know how to spell, right?
University administrators plan to dissuade freshmen from participating in Housing Day Eve 'traditions' by keeping them out of upperclassmen houses and providing alternative activities.
The Housing Portal has opened and closed for 2017’s freshman class, but the friendships (or awkward avoidances) and memories between blocking and linking groups have only just begun. While the portal was seemingly impossible to navigate at some points (s/o to all group leaders for getting it together!), there was one step that proved to be the gift that just kept giving. When trying to link up with another blocking group, freshmen were presented with a list of every, and I mean EVERY, other unlinked blocking group.
Upperclassmen who applied to the first round of the interhouse transfer process received the results of their applications last week and some have since voiced concerns and complaints about the process.
It looks like all the fanfare surrounding Housing Day might turn into a battle of the Beyoncés—because not just one, but at least two, Houses are throwing around the idea of making a Yoncé-themed Housing Day video this year.
Over the years, Harvard's housing has drastically changed. With Housing Day coming up, here's a look a back at the biggest events in Harvard housing history.
Like most things media, Housing Day videos are all about the spin. To do students a service and set the record straight, we’ve come up with a few suggestions for more honest Housing Day displays.
Adams House Committee Co-Chair Rob C. Gunzenhauser '15 presents his proposal for a post-Housing Day field day for freshmen at Sunday night's Undergraduate Council meeting in Sever Hall.
Members of the UC discussed a proposal to ease the transition of freshmen into upperclassmen Houses, provided feedback to guests from the Office of Career Services, and approved legislation specifying the roles of different Council members in their general meeting Sunday.
This semester, the UC sought to fill twelve seats—three in Cabot House, two in Kirkland House, and one each in Oak Yard, Adams, Currier, Dunster, Eliot, Leverett, and Mather Houses.
Dunster House residents had the opportunity to view the rooms they may inhabit next year during a walkthrough of several suites at 20-20A Prescott Street Friday afternoon.
As the newly released plans for the Dunster House renewal take shape and construction on Leverett’s McKinlock Hall continues to progress, University President Drew G. Faust said on Tuesday that Harvard’s focus for House Renewal, at least for the time being, remains on the river.
Administrators, alumni, and students celebrated the 100th birthday of Persis Smith Hall, the main structures of Kirkland House on Feb. 7.
