This Week at Harvard: July 20 to July 26
Now that summer is more than halfway over, we hope you’ve gotten the chance to see or do something cool. If not, what better time than now to do something summery?
IN THE ATMOSPHERE
It will be hot and humid again this week. If you thought the blistering temperatures of last weekend were only temporary, think again. Still, it will cool down a little on Friday with a high of 75 degrees, and there’s no rain predicted for the near future.
