Flyby Matchmaker, Part Four: Picasso and The Office

​Angelina Massa is an Applied Math concentrator living in Quincy House. She is in search of someone “fun,” “smart” and who has “good arms.” We sent her to visit the café and go on a tour at The Harvard Art Museums with Mark Goldman. He is a joint Chemistry and Physics concentrator who lives in Pforzheimer House. He will “maintain conversations at any cost” and was hoping his date would be “talkative” and “funny.”

Op-Eds

The Flyby Matchmaker is Back (With New Improvements)!

Op-Eds

Change You Can Acknowledge

If courses other than Expos can teach writing effectively, why not create more of them so that more than a few dozen students can experience the new teaching format?
