The Upperclassmen Guide to Visitas


Enjoy awkward silences and endless introductions? We've compiled a list of the highlights of this year's Visitas weekend.

"Slow Dancing" presented by Office for the Arts, Friday, April 20, 7-11 p.m.

Although this video project, which will run nightly in the Yard through April 29, is described as a stunning visual display of dancers practicing their art, we're hoping that it incorporates a lesson in dance floor etiquette for the upcoming freshman. For example, if all your dancing peers drunkenly tumble off the table, you should too.

Crimson Key Practical Campus Tour, Saturday, April 21, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.

If this tour accurately follows the paths of current freshman, then "practical" stops include Annenberg, Lamont, the Yard, and…that's it. Current freshmen may want to hop on this tour, which begins at the John Harvard statue, just in case the guide decides to venture to the elusive Union dorms. If you've never been to Greenough, does it exist?

"What I Wish I'd Known," a panel by the Senior Class Committee in Sever 113, Saturday, April 21 8-9 p.m.

And a bonus tip from Flyby:

If you fall asleep in Lamont, someone will take a picture of you.

Panel: What It's Like to be a Harvard Freshman, Sunday, April 22 10-11 a.m.

The truth? Late nights in Lamont, busted dorm parties and putting everything you own on a lanyard. Join Dean of Freshmen Thomas A. Dingman '67 in Science Center B to hear otherwise.

Pre-Frosh Palooza: A Night of Entertainment, Sunday, April 22 9-11 p.m.

This collection of performances is bound to inspire, but the real "night of entertainment" comes afterwards when we watch eager prefrosh wander Mt. Auburn St. in search of the real college experience.
