The Best $10 You'll Ever Spend

​Are you a sophomore premed already disenamored with Chem 17? What about a freshman who already failed to finish his first CS 50 problem set even though students receive an extra 10 days this year? If so, have no fear. Though the first Add/Drop deadline has tragically passed, Harvard students still have until the Fifth Monday (October 3) to finalize their course schedules for the fall semester (and even then, why is everyone so scared of the dreaded W?).

Flyby's Predictions for Housing Day Anthems

​Some Houses have already released previews of their 2016 Housing Day videos, but we are not yet convinced that the Dark Side (or long and drawn-out scrolling lines of text fading into the vast expanse of outer space) looks good on Dunster, or that Eliot really needs to apologize for anything (or maybe it should – see below).
