If you got mostly A’s...We’re not surprised — grade inflation really comes in clutch. Congrats, you’re the Smith Campus Center! Newly renovated with an ideal location, you are beloved by all. However, no matter how confident you might be, you’re the new kid on the block and are looking for a real connection.

If you got mostly B’s...We’re sorry — it B like that sometimes. We hate to break it to you, but you’re Lamont Library. Though you’re nothing to call home about, you’re very reliable and are a great shoulder to cry on. In fact, people enjoy your company so much that they often stay the night.

If you got mostly C’s...Don’t worry — C’s get degrees! But not grad school or med school unfortunately. It’s probably not a surprise that you’re the Science Center. When life gets hard and you feel like you’re drowning in psets, just know that people admire your incredible intellect and exceptional pain tolerance.

If you got mostly D’s...I don’t think your parents will be D-lighted to hear about those grades, but hey, if I’ve learned anything from Economics 10A: “Principles of Economics,” it’s that Harvard is the best place to find your wealthy spouse! That shouldn’t be too hard given that you’re Widener Library! You’re classy and full of knowledge that may or may not be relevant. Keep up the charm and pretty soon you’ll be counting stacks.
