Features and Series
With Visitas and college decisions in full swing, you may be in need of some helpful advice. Like, actual, real adult advice. Lucky for you, we've got some of Harvard's most esteemed (and friendly!) administrators, faculty, and staff to pass on some wise words.
Virtual Visitas feeling a bit overwhelming? Not really sure what this whole "college" thing is even about? After going through just about every up and down college has to offer, our senior writers are here with a few words of wisdom to pass along as their time at Harvard comes to an end.
Next up in our Flyby Everywhere column, our writers (quite literally) stepped into each other's shoes and swapped time zones for a week. With wildly different experiences during their freshman years as an international student and a student living on campus, we got a peak into just one of the many new challenges awaiting many of our international students.
While these joyful (or not so joyful) assignments have always been a fan-favorite of professors, they've taken an even stronger hold on syllabi during virtual classes. Maybe you love them, maybe you hate them, maybe you're totally indifferent – either way, our writers have strong feelings and are ready to share them!
For many international students, a virtual semester means changing up their sleep schedules to be basically nocturnal. Sure, that means Zoom calls at 2 a.m, but at least we get to feel a bit like Hannah Montana with her double life? Silver linings, people!
Let’s talk about The League — and, for the first time since we came to college, NOT the Ivy League. Sad I know, but this might be refreshing. We’ll define The League today as an interesting spinoff of Tinder overwhelmed by a strange tsunami of pretentiousness.
Whether you’re the person that reads everyone’s LinkedIn updates (who needs Instagram, amiright?) or forgets to accept your ever-increasing number of connection requests, here’s a field guide to the different kinds of people you’ll meet on LinkedIn as you get on your #networking #grind.
Our writers sat down with YouTube sensation, cookbook author, and (!!) Harvard alumna Claire Saffitz to talk her experience at Harvard, cats, and (duh) desserts! Hungry now? Us too!
With the challenges of Covid-19, it’s safe to say that every single House stepped up to make a fire video in light of pandemic precautions and remote learning. And even if the video is slightly less-than-fire, it’s still worth getting hyped because each and every house has their own amazing perks. Dying to know who took this year’s crown? Without further ado, we present Flyby’s Official Housing Day Video Rankings for 2021.
We'll be the first to admit that this March 10 feature honestly has us feeling a bit nostalgic for those initial quarantine days. Remember Tiger King? And cloud bread? Take a walk through memory lane with us as we go through some of our most memorable pandemic moments.
