We're on a Boat?

When Harvard begins its systematic renovation of the House system, known as House Renewal, the College will need to find space to hold more than 300 students while their dorms are under construction. Harvard-owned apartment buildings around the Square have been tapped for the residents of Old Quincy, where construction is slated to begin this June. But Harvard could take a cue from St. Mary's College of Maryland, which The Washington Post reported has hired a 286-foot cruise ship as a temporary dorm for the 250 students displaced from their mold-infested dorms. Who needs an Allston campus when we have the Charles River?
