Why We Declared STEM

Presenting… Sophomore declarations of 2020, STEM edition! It might feel like there are three billion different STEM concentrations here at Harvard, so we’ve compiled a bit of insight into just a couple of the paths you might decide to take.


Why We Declared The Most Popular Concentrations at Harvard

Sure, the semester is online, but that didn’t stop sophomores from having to declare their concentrations mid-November. Picking what to study can range from easy-as-Thanksgiving-pie to difficult-difficult-lemon-difficult, so here’s some perspective from folks at Flyby who decided they wanted to be part of the two most popular concentrations at Harvard.


Tag Yourself: Which Bennett from The Bachelorette Are You?

Flyby Tries: Among Us

You’re probably running into the TikTok trends and Among Us memes all over your timeline these days. We felt similarly and decided to review this multiplayer game, available as a phone app.


Tag Yourself: Zoom Extension Edition

Love it/Hate it: Required Cameras On

Spilling the Tea with Samyra

Let’s be real, at this point Harvard feels more like a vague concept than an ~actual real place~, and we have no idea what’s going on 80 percent of the time. With students scattered all across the world, clubs left on their own to figure out what virtual programming even means, and a seemingly endless list of deadlines and Zoom calls from the College, the information is endless and our inbox (or mine at least) is already at 15,000 unread messages and counting.


The Crimson's Freshman Survey: Meet the Class of 2024

The Crimson’s survey of more than 76 percent of incoming freshmen in Harvard College’s Class of 2024 asked them about their experiences during the coronavirus pandemic and opinions of Harvard’s response to it.

An Open Letter to Those-Trying-to-Decide-on-Schools-Without-Visiting-Any-Schools

Dear All-Pre-Frosh-Trying-To-Decide-On-Schools-Without-Visiting-Any-Schools, First of all, you’re doing amazing sweetie. The hardest part of applying to college is over, and you’ll never have to write another 250 word essay about how you possess “intellectual vitality.” That is not to say that deciding a college isn’t difficult, but you definitely have the resources to help you through the process.


Choosing a College That Sparks Joy

One of the most important things my parents said to me during the college process was, “We want you to go where you will be happy.” This notion has stuck with me ever since, and meant a lot as someone who got into Harvard Early Action (humble brag?), but wasn’t sure that it was where I wanted to go.


Virtual Visitas (Virtualtas!) Bingo

If you get Bingo, congrats! You have no choice but to officially confirm your acceptance of admission into the Harvard Class of 2024. ​​​​​​​
