Flyby Front Feature


Harvard Houses (Taylor's Version)

It’s been nearly two whole weeks since Taylor Swift released her re-recorded album, Fearless (Taylor’s Version), which means Swifties everywhere are bored out of their minds. To help with that, Flyby has created the only vibe chart you need. Who cares about which House you’re in when you could be a Taylor Swift album instead? Baby, just say yes! ...to our picks ;)


Flyby Everywhere: Day in the Life of an International Student — Pandemic Edition

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!

You might not actually be receiving any Jefe's dates or Canada Goose jackets anytime soon, but at least you'll be ready for that next quarantine fling!


Flyby's 2020 Holiday Gift Guide

The smell of gingerbread is in the air and Bublé is crooning in the distance. You’re not sure whether the joy you feel is from it being the most wonderful time of the year or because 2020 is finally coming to an end. There’s just one problem: how to find that perfect thoughtful gift for your loved ones. While Mariah is right, we figured your gift recipients might want just a little bit more than you. With an eye for creative and heartwarming treats, Flyby has compiled the ultimate 2020 Holiday Gift guide just for you!


What Is Your Alternate Ivy League School?

It’s that time of the year again! We’re deep into the season treasured more than any other by the overachieving high schoolers eventually accepted to the hype Harvard institution. College admission season is upon us, and this year it’s going to be wilder than ever. But imagine, Harvard doesn’t exist, and it never has. All of us currently attending Forbes’s number one school in the world definitely would have ended up at some other Ivy League establishment.


How to: Zoom the Holidays This Year

Jingle bells, I can’t smell, I have to wash my hands… Remember when we all thought life would be back to normal by now? What a time. But with the holidays creeping around the corner, it’s time to get into the festive mood and find some time to unwind. Although we may not be on Harvard’s campus together, there are still plenty of ways to stay connected (unless your Wi-Fi drops) during this jolly season!


Winter Treats To Get Excited For

This reading period, you may have fewer (as in, zero) formals and gatherings to attend, so what should you do with the extra few hours? Make your life a little sweeter by eating delicious goodies. Rather than simply scrolling through Pinterest and saving photos of aesthetic holiday desserts, go out and actually enjoy a few treats from this list. This semester may not have been a piece of cake, but you certainly deserve one for making it to the end.


Graph of My Motivation Over Reading Period

‘Tis the season for... reading period! This year, reading period looks quite a bit different in more ways than one. I mean, who doesn't dream of studying for final exams in their childhood bedroom as they're being stared down by the five-foot horse poster that's been living on the wall ever since their horse girl phase in 2010? That's right, nobody. In any case, my motivation levels are all over the place, so hopefully you relate to this desperate cry into the void too.


How to: Lose All the Friends You Just Made in College

If you’re a freshman like me who came to campus for a few short weeks, you’re probably now at home, far away from the friends that you just made. With mingled anxiety and uncertainty about blocking groups and plans for next semester, you’re probably wondering how you can stay in touch with your now long-distance friends. I might not be able to tell you exactly how to do that, but I can definitely tell you one thing that you should absolutely not do. Whatever you do, do NOT download the Psych! app, schedule a time to Zoom or FaceTime with your friends, and play “The Truth Comes Out.” Please. If you want to keep your friends, just don’t do it.


Stop Working And Do This Reading Period Bingo

It's reading period, otherwise known as the period of time you spend realizing that maybe, just maybe, you shouldn't have muted those Tuesday morning lectures. Before the semester slips through your fingers, see whether you can start reading period off with a Flyby-bingo-style win.


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.


Flyby’s Guide to Thanksgiving

We’ve got you covered with some tips and tricks for satisfying your tastebuds with some classic Thanksgiving delicacies to (hopefully!) bring us back some sense of normalcy. Whatever you have planned, we’re here to make sure that your COVID-friendly Thanksgiving is fun, safe (yes, that includes if you're doing Friendsgiving!), and especially yummy.


Flyby Investigates: Where Do the Turkeys Come From, Where Do They Go

It’s just a regular day in Cambridge, freshmen making their daily trip to the steps of Widener and tourists taking pictures with the John Harvard statue. Oh, and of course, we can’t forget about the two random turkeys frolicking in the middle of the road, causing a mini traffic jam. It’s a sight to behold, a small break from the chaos of everything else happening right now, and I’m sure the turkeys don’t mind posing for a few seconds anyways.
