Housing Day 2015

Mather

<p>When we think about Mather, we think of its “unique” look and its signature boast that residents get singles for life– which they really do, and some freshmen may be looking forward to it after a year of the bunkbed life. The youngest house of Harvard’s residential colleges, Mather was first opened to students in only 1970. While it’s often referenced in conversations about how unattractive it looks (especially juxtaposed with Dunster), and also deemed as one of the farthest River houses you can get, there are some cool perks to living in the concrete jungle that you may not want to overlook.</p>

In The School of Tyrannus

If you haven’t heard of Nathaniel Eaton, Harvard’s first head of school, it’s not because he’s one of the University’s buried treasures. Described by one student as “fitter to have been an officer in the inquisition, or master of an house of correction, than an instructer (sic) of Christian Youth,” Eaton’s disastrous year-and-a-half-long tenure, from 1638 to 1639, ended in a court case in which he was ordered to step down and pay a fine. The school closed down for the subsequent academic year. The affair was such a scandal that in 1940, some students argued that 1640 should be seen as the real founding year of Harvard College. Here are just a few things that made Nathaniel Eaton and his regime, well, shitty.
