Harvard Today: October 13, 2014

By Y. Kit Wu

Good morning, Harvard! We’ll keep this one short and sweet so you can make the most of your 3-day weekend. Whether this means vaguely checking the time on your phone and then rolling back into bed, cramming for the slew of midterms you have this week, or ignoring your academic duties (I mean, the part where you panic and hate yourself for procrastinating is reserved for the late hours of the night anyways, right?) and doing something fun with a day off, we all love Monday’s off because the countdown to the weekend is just that much closer!


It’s going to be a sunny and nice day today with a high of 67 degrees! Keep telling yourself that the nice weather totally justifies ditching your plans at Lamont and eventually you’ll believe it and feel no qualms!

1) Someone is Studying the Harvard Square Turkey: Don’t deny it—we’ve all wondered about what this turkey does and where it spends its days.

2) College Students in Boston Talk Smack About Harvard: “Lisa from Boston College starts off  by calling Harvard ‘sexually frustrated and well-endowed.’”

3) Your Guide to Apple Cider in the Square: A cup of apple cider counts for towards our daily fruit intake, right?

4) Harvard Students Fail to Rank in Dateability, Hotness, Smartness, and Sexiness: What, we didn’t make these lists?!? #omg


1) Men's Soccer Squeaks Past Cornell, 1-0: “A 48th minute goal by senior forward Hiroki Kobayashi was the lone score in the Harvard men’s soccer team’s (7-3-0, 2-0 Ivy) 1-0 victory over Cornell (6-4-1, 0-2-0) Saturday at Soldiers Field. It was the team’s ninth win in 10 home contests and one that maintained its perfect home record in 2014.”

2) Men's Water Polo Splits Weekend Contests: “Despite coming away with a win in its second game against the Camels after suffering a defeat at the hands of Brown, Harvard struggled on the defensive end and came away unsatisfied with its results.”


There's an Indigenous People's Day Commemoration today at 6 p.m. in front of Matthews Hall. There will be a candlelight vigil to honor the indigenous people impacted by colonialism in the Americas.


Crowds fill Harvard Square on Sunday afternoon for the 36th Annual Oktoberfest in Cambridge.
