With this in mind, here are a few DOs and DON'Ts for making the most of having your belongings searched:

Campus Currencies: A Detailed Breakdown

I’ve spent time recently in Lamont Cafe, Annenberg, and Pennypacker basement, despite not being a freshman (extenuating circumstances for each, I swear!), and I’ve overheard way too many conversations to this effect: “Did you know Harvard gives us money to buy burritos??” “I heard that, but I want to save money to do laundry…” Actually, that's not quite how it works. Here’s a detailed breakdown of our campus currencies—not that we should need it, but we evidently do.
