For many Harvard students, last Monday's hurricane translated to nothing more than a rainy day in pajamas and an extra day to work on that Stat pset. But for those who have family and friends in New York or New Jersey, Hurricane Sandy left destruction in its path—and two Harvard students are doing something about it.
Last Monday night, students across campus watched Bob Schieffer question Barack Obama and Mitt Romney on their respective foreign policy agendas.
Ah, Halloween, the magical time when every cheap creative costume idea you’ve brainstormed in the last year goes out the window and you end up as some sort of sexy baby animal. Lucky for you, FM’s here to make sure your budget’s no excuse for being the seventh person to show up to the costume party in cat ears, a tail, and not much else.
Many students fled from parties this weekend, after Cambridge police officers showed up at final club parties and asked club officials to keep the noise down.
When Sandel announced in his first lecture that the course would introduce a Friday class this year, roughly half of the 800 students went back to their shopping lists to look at other course offerings.
Students muddling through their first day of shopping period encountered a change when several professors chose to highlight collaboration policies while introducing their courses this Tuesday.
Students who took Government 1310: “Introduction to Congress” in recent years describe a course with a noted culture of collaboration, a practice that eventually led to alleged widespread cheating after the professor added a difficult short answer component to the course’s take-home exams.
Large-scale cheating scandals at the University of Virginia, the U.S. Naval Academy, and Dartmouth may offer insight into the approach Harvard may take in doling out punishments to students found guilty of academic dishonesty in Government 1310: “Introduction to Congress.”
An inside look at an old church aside Methoni castle, near Pylos, Greece.
Just as Greece is plopped between East and West, developing and developed, that gypsy girl sits astride poverty and stability. Both oddly comfortable but forced to beg, they know they have a right to something.
Though Margaret E. Atwood’s time at Radcliffe was littered with obstacles—from gender-based discrimination to cut-throat competition within the English department—she was, and has remained, an unfailingly positive and patient woman.
Starting Wednesday, students will be able to submit designs for the new face of my.harvard.edu to the Harvard Student Information Technology Advisory Committee.
