As is the case in life, many things only happen in our dreams: finishing a pset before the day it’s due, a full eight hours of sleep, and the shuttle being there for you when you actually need it. Whether you’re going to class from the Quad or Mather, returning back home after a long day of walking, or trying to visit the new SEAS complex, the shuttle is always necessary and never on schedule. And since we’re busy students, it’s probably a good idea to be ~productive~ when spending those many hours waiting for it to arrive.
I am personally insisting upon decorating my room as much as possible so it manifests a full semester on campus... but if you're feeling a bit more nervous, here's some ideas to get your room feeling nice and comfortable (even if you are still traumatized).

I can say with absolute certainty (and a pinch of bias) that international students bring a lot of unique, special qualities to Harvard, from their interesting accents, beautiful languages and time zone issues. Whether you're from the States or not, though, there are International quirks that align with just abou everybody. Check out this tag yourself to find out what aspects of the international student experience speak to you the most!
The ever-approaching finals season may have you watching lectures at double speed, contemplating life in the shower, or truly just wishing for some ~authentic~ Harvard experiences. For those of us who are still stuck off campus, fret not. As you push towards the end of what is *hopefully* your last remote semester, here are some tips to make campus seem a little less distant.

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!
While we continue thinking of ways to execute genius April Fools' Day pranks from six feet apart, at least there's plenty of other things at Harvard to leave us feeling like fools regardless!
