Love @ctually?

<p>Harvard is like Hogwarts in so many ways—we’ve got the house system, we’ve got Annenberg, we’ve even got Quidditch—but one thing notoriously absent is any form of love potion. </p> <p> </p> <p>Harvard is known for a lot of things, but for better of for worse, a thriving dating scene is not one of them. </p> <p> </p> <p>Sanyee Yuan ’12 hopes to change all this with the new-and-improved second season of Harvard’s premiere dating show, “Love@Harvard.” </p> <p> </p> <p>“Upperclassmen always say freshman year was the best for meeting people and the dating scene becomes a little nonexistent after that,” said Yuan, the host and executive producer of the show. “When people talk about their futures here, they talk about concentrations and jobs, never about finding a significant other.” </p> <p> </p> <p>The HUTV reality show, created last year by Emma Coleman ’09, hopes to bring love back into the picture by catalyzing relationships in ten minutes or less. More after the jump. </p>
