Study card day is upon us, and it's pretty much a measure of how on top of our lives we are. Get it handed in, avoid the obnoxious fine, and then voilà! School is officially in session. It might even be time to start actually doing the reading (just kidding!).
IN THE ATMOSPHERE
With a high of 78, this might be one of the last warm days of the year, but don't get too excited—it's going to be windy and cloudy as well. Welcome to Boston.

On the Dinner Menu:
Normandy Style Pork Loin

Portobello Mushroom with Quinoa Stuffing
A lot's going on today! And by a lot, we mean free food.
Study Cards are due by 5 p.m. to your houses (or to University Hall for freshmen).
No, not the final club. Like actual bees. In the plaza. With an inflatable beehive. From 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. there will be organic honey tastings in the Science Center Plaza at the weekly farmer's market, followed by a film screening of "More than Honey" at 7 p.m. in Science Center C.
Opening of the Year Event, 4 p.m., Sanders Theater. President Faust will deliver a State of the University, followed by a Q&A, followed by live performances and food samples in the plaza. We're really getting a use out of that space.
If you're bummed or otherwise uninspired after Faust's public address, consider heading to the Knafel Center (formerly known as Radcliffe Gymnasium) to hear Jill Lepore discuss Benjamin Franklin's sister Jane Franklin, the subject of her forthcoming Book of Ages: The Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin. 5 p.m.
Postgraduate Fellowships in the U.K., 4 p.m. - 5 p.m., Harvard Hall 102.
