Are All Final Club Members Really White and Rich? Our Survey Says No.
With punch season now in full swing, it’s time to present the results of Flyby’s first-ever Final Club Survey. The online survey was emailed out last month to 4,838 sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and was partially or fully completed 1,927 times (though it should be noted that individuals could have taken the survey more than once). In the second installment of a six-part series on the survey results, we take a look at the demographics of the self-identified final club members who answered our questions. Whether or not they’re in a final club or only entered the Owl once to use the bathroom, most Harvard students are familiar with the stereotype of the final club bro. They’re supposedly white, straight, rich, legacy varsity athletes—but do these stereotypes actually hold up to scrutiny? The results served up only a few curveballs.
