Senior Section 2013
František secretly flew back to Slovakia for spring break of sophomore year, arriving on a Sunday. He surprised her at the church in the small valley that had special significance for them.
We once decided to bike down the entirety of Loch Ness in one day. It turned into a torrential downpour, with an inch of water covering the road, but we still made it!
I think it was when we first traveled alone together—we went to St. Augustine, Fla., for a weekend and explored the town. It’s nice to have someone who wants to visit 17th-century forts with you.

The Crimson conducted a survey of the Class of 2013 from May 11 to May 21. Nearly half of the senior class—780 respondents—answered questions on topics ranging from drug use to House satisfaction to post-graduation plans. We assume the sample is a random selection and therefore discount any selection bias. The results paint a picture of the class that graduates this week.
