Lowell House Opera Brings ‘La Grotta di Trofonio’ out of the Dark

Lowell House Opera's production—the U.S. debut of “Trofonio”—succeeds despite vocal and other challenges due to an abundance of energy, enthusiasm, and good-natured humor and makes a convincing case that Salieri’s operas are worthy of further attention.

Lowell House Renovation

Lowell

<p>Lowell is home to weekly tea parties, lovely Faculty Deans, and… towering cranes? Yep, by summer of 2017, Lowell will commence its renovation. With the project spanning a total of two years, freshmen can expect to spend their first year in Lowell and their subsequent two years in swing housing. How will this renovation project affect house life? While we don’t have any answers yet, future Lowellians can expect to at least spend a single really great year living within Lowell’s walls. </p>

Quincy House: Stone Hall

Quincy

<p>If the dining hall restrictions of no freshman and strict “+1 guest only” rules at Quincy’s popular dining hall are any indication, this house is in many ways the center of dining life on the River. Old Quincy, known as Stone Hall, has been renovated in recent years and reflects the traditional Harvard look of many of the houses along the River, while New Quincy boasts fully-furnished singles within a duplex that are popular for juniors and seniors within the House. New freshman penguins (the house mascot) will enjoy late night treats at the unrivaled Quincy Grille or at the comfortable, renovated “Innovation Space” in Stone Hall’s basement. Despite some controversial dining hall murals, freshman placed in Quincy on Housing Day have plenty of reasons to celebrate. </p>
