Harvard in the City

Home Sweet Shelter

It’s tucked on the corner of Dunster and Winthrop Streets, bright and inviting. Plush couches surround a TV, and a re-run of Family Guy provides background noise for bantering guests.

The Reversible Collar Company

Mt. Auburn Street offers so much more than Boloco and final clubs. Tucked beside a parking lot, a large red brick building with the hanging sign "Harvard Square Shiatsu" goes unnoticed.
