Listen Up!: Housing Day Special Edition

When Abigail K. Fiedler ’16 and Lynn Miao ’16, our wonderful Flyby Blog Editors, approached us about writing a special Housing Day-themed column, we were absolutely excited about the opportunity. After all, writing about Housing Day (or at least inserting the phrase “Housing Day” as many times as you can in an article) seems to be the perfect way to really boost your readership.

The Silent Studios

Six years after its opening, the SOCH recording studio has fallen into disuse. Despite its goal of unifying campus musicians, the musical community at Harvard is as incohesive as it was when the space first opened. What happened to the studio and the vision that inspired it?

Cabot House
House Life

Cabot House

Every day between now and Housing Day, Flyby will release two new House rankings. The top two Houses will be revealed on Wednesday, March 13. Check back daily for updates! The phrase, "I can see the SOCH from my House!" is not generally considered a good thing among Harvard undergraduates. Throughout the history of Flyby House Rankings, Cabot House has been nowhere near the top five. In fact, the House has typically ranked in the bottom two—so what's changed? Not much, as it turns out. After our careful research, it comes down to this—Cabot has simply been underrated. Yes, it's in the Quad. But Cabot's large singles, abundant facilities, beloved House Masters, and overall pleasant atmosphere make it one of the more appealing Houses on campus.
