The Cyrus Infection: Miley Crashes Math 21a

To quote the wise poet Jay-Z, "Somewhere in America, Miley Cyrus is still twerking." To be even more specific, somewhere in Harvard, Miley Cyrus is not only twerking but is also taking over any and all aspects of college life.

But haters cannot deny that from the incessant appearance of "We Can't Stop" on seemingly every final club's playlist (we all see your ploy to get girls to twerk) to Miley references in, dare we say, the classroom itself, we at Harvard really just can't stop.
