It’s Thursday! In honor of Throwback Thursday, here are some songs from way back when (you know, when we thought Heelys were the “it” item and we all predicted who would grow up to be a good parent based on their Tamagotchi’s) to help get you to the weekend:
Both Huge chunk of your life gone before you know it Empirical and Mathematical Reasoning required The closer you are to being done, the more you play with your phone in class Causes mass hysteria Won’t be relevant in two months
But for many, the true challenges begin only with entrance through Widener Gate on the first day of freshman year. The past year has seen efforts by students and alumni alike to bridge a possible disconnect between administrative enthusiasm to attract first-generation students, and weaker support and outreach once they arrive on campus. For the students, part of this process has included the development of a “first-gen” identity as something to be embraced.
Happy Wednesday! To brighten your Wednesday today, here are a couple of unusual holidays that you can celebrate today:
The Harvard Islamic Society launched its Muslim Life Fund campaign last Friday and hopes to raise $30,000 in 2014.
