We live in Boston, for God’s sake. It’s directly on Massachusetts Bay, which boasts one of the most vibrant fishing industries in the U.S. Instead, Harvard University Dining Services decides to periodically serve up this rubbery dish. Really, HUDS, why swai?
PRINTING AND LAUNDRY COSTS
There is something so frustrating about paying money in order to do a problem set or write a paper. With a multi-billion dollar endowment, we think Harvard should be able to front this one.
And the laundry machines, which are probably about 50 years old and paid off by now, are priced at $1.25 a load. To justify laundromat prices, Harvard should at least replace them with more efficient washers.
THE TITLE OF HOUSE MASTER
There are so many other possible titles instead of “House Master”: head of house, chair, principal. As a new member of Leverett, I was relieved that Howard Georgi and his wife called themselves “chief ” and “coach.” House Master is already phasing out of Harvard lexicon—it’s time to make it official.
MALE FINAL CLUBS
With the recent controversial email sent by the Spee, it is clear that the current structure of male final clubs should become a part of Harvard’s past, not its present. Discussions need to be had in order to create more inclusive social spaces for students.
