On their first date, they talked outside of Crema for four hours. “We just got each other. We could totally be ourselves.”

Engagement: Joshua G. Wilson ’13 and Sorrel L. Nielsen ’14

A couple days ago, I invited Sorrel to take a walk with me down to the Radcliffe Sunken Garden. I said I needed to take a phone call. Then I took the ring out of my pocket. I came back and held her hand.

7. UPSETS BY THE KILLER P'S DENY FOOTBALL THE IVY TITLE

In its eight wins during the 2012 season, the Harvard football team outscored its opponents by an average of 29 points. The Crimson’s 394 total points set a modern-era Ivy League record, and Harvard's roster contained the Ancient Eight Player of the Year (QB Colton Chapple) and placed 18 others on all-Ivy squads. But at the season's end, thanks to two stunning road losses, Harvard was left with nothing to show for it. In week six, the Crimson held a commanding 34-10 lead over Princeton with 13 minutes to go. But a number of Harvard mistakes helped lead to four unanswered Tigers touchdowns during that span, and a Hail Mary pass with 13 seconds left gave the Tigers a dramatic 39-34 win. Despite suffering one of the largest collapses in college football history, Harvard still had the chance to win the title in the season’s penultimate week. But a physical Penn squad upset the Crimson, 30-21, to give the Quakers back the Ancient Eight crown.

Eight Crazy Nights

Adam Sandler explained it best: "Hanukkah is the festival of lights. Instead of one day of presents, we get eight crazy nights." That about sums up the holiday. But thankfully, there’s more music than just Sandler's humorous song to keep you humming as you spin dreidels and eat latkes (or, more likely given the timing of the holiday this year, as you pray for the miracle that one can of Red Bull lasts for all eight nights of finals period).
