Spring break just bid adieu, leaving us with only about seven more weeks of classes. So naturally all that’s left for us to do is bite our nails, pull our hair, and constantly scroll through the OCS website worrying about summer plans.
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.
Successful Harvard grads follow well-tread paths that lead from campus to New York, Hollywood, and across the globe. If they go where the existing university network shapes their trajectory, it is too easy to remain within the Harvard bubble—obscuring the possibilities that exist outside of it.
Students speak to professionals working in the federal, state, and local government on Friday in the HGSE Gutman Conference Center. The Harvard Government Careers Student/Employer Meet-Up thinking about the shutdown was open to all students who are considering government jobs, internships, or fellowships.
Students gathered in the Graduate School of Education’s Gutman Conference Center on Friday for a fair on careers in federal, state, and local government—an event which would have been scaled down had the government shutdown not ended Thursday.
An OCS informational session on careers in government scheduled for next Friday has not been altered in light of the shutdown, though the attendance of some governmental office representatives at the meet-up may be affected.
It's Tuesday, which means it's not Monday but it's also not Friday yet. Hang in there—it's almost hump day! Here's what going on at Harvard today.
Ah, Monday—we meet again. Let's all roll out of bed and get this over with. To make the beginning of the week a little less painful, here's a summary of what's happening on campus today.

The government may be shut down, but Harvard’s still chugging along (for now, at least). If you're feeling disgusted by American democracy today, you're not alone (see: "Dollarocracy"). If you're looking to be inspired by hearing about people who actually made change, head to a screening of "Left on Pearl," a documentary on the historic events of International Women's Day 1971 at Harvard. And if you're looking to forget about politics altogether, munch on a farmer's market apple in the sun.
