Going for Gold

While multiple Harvard alums will be rowing in Tokyo, Dean (pictured in the foreground in the stroke position) is the only actively enrolled Crimson rower to suit up in Japan. After the uncertainty of a year's postponement, Dean and others will finally compete this week.


With the Olympics Around the Corner, Harvard and Radcliffe Rowers Prepare to Make Their Mark

Dean is the only enrolled Crimson rower headed to the Olympics, but not the only Harvard affiliate; alumni Andrew Reed, Alexander Richards ’18, Conor Harrity ’18, Liam Corrigan ’19, and Olivia Coffey ’11 from the Radcliffe team are competing for America. Sam Hardy ’18 and Josh Hicks ’13 are competing for Australia, and Jüri-Mikk Udam ’17 is rowing for Estonia.


Around the Ivies: One Last Time

Maybe it’s just the graduation goggles, but I realized that I don’t need football to do one of my favorite things as a Crimson reporter: write my Around the Ivies column. Although it may be harder to berate the Brown football program — don’t worry, I still will — the Ancient Eight is still alive even without sports. So without further ado, let’s take one last trip Around the Ivies.


Not Just TDs (FGs Too)

3 TDs in 3 OTs

Tight end and long snapper Tyler Ott ’14 heads for the end zone on Harvard’s home turf against Princeton. Despite eventually falling to the Tigers 51-48 in this triple-overtime thriller on October 26, 2013—the Crimson’s only loss of Ott’s senior season—Ott finished the game with three touchdowns, tying the program record for single-game touchdown receptions.


Old Stomping Grounds

From the Water to a Farm, Caroline Noble Makes Her Mark

The coronavirus pandemic has been nothing short of a call to action for many. Students, teachers, and administrators are all doing their part in the fight against COVID-19.

Australian First-Year Student-Athletes Navigate the New Normal

You might find some on-campus student-athletes running along the Charles, waiting for their team’s designated time slot to lift in Harvard’s athletic facilities, or following Google docs with workouts prepared by their coaches. Not all first-year students were allowed back on campus this semester, however.

2020 Vision

I am urging our nation’s young people to “be the change [they] want to see in the world.” I am urging young people, especially the Class of 2020, to share in my vision: a vision in which 2020 is the year we make significant progress on the road to defeat racism and systemic inequality.
