Visitas for the Class of 2026 is finally here! Get ready for the classic introduction to all things truly Harvard, no matter what this weekend has in store for you. Needing a test run before the real thing? We've got you covered! And for our dear, dear members of Class of 2024 and 2025 – here's your chance to relive those previously-virtual glory days in your own version of Visitas 2.0! ;-)
Alright folks. We are just days away from the first Yardfest since 2019… Phew. As someone who attended the Yardfests of yore (i.e. exactly one, featuring Kiiara & Bazzi), I am wildly excited for the chance to relive some freshman year nostalgia. Sure, maybe we didn’t get Olivia Rodrigo opening plus the ultimate One Direction reunion as Flyby once manifested, but Swae Lee isn’t a bad deal either! Read on for all you need to know about this Sunday’s festivities.
Ah, Housing Day. One of the most beloved traditions for a Harvard student, back once again in person. Before experiencing the joys of dorm storming and the excitement of meeting your new House community, you must conquer River Run.
If you’re like me and have given up on trying to make your life better on your own, it’s time to turn to whatever magical forces you can find. Wish on a shooting star! Steal a leprechaun’s pot of gold! Kidnap a genie! This is the semester of ~manifesting~, so rub on John Harvard’s foot and make a wish folks.
To get the scoop on all things Datamatch, we sat down with Supreme Cupids Melissa W. Kwan ’22 and Katherine Y. Zhu ’23, two true professionals on romance, humor, and ~top secret algorithms~. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or still waiting to lose your Datamatch virginity, we’ve got your guide on returning fav features, new surprises, and why this kooky survey continues to be our personal favorite tradition<3
With shopping week long gone (for now at least, rip) and me having no idea how to choose my classes, we’ve got to get CREATIVE here. Why add classes based on Q Guide comments, professor Q&A’s, or concentration requirements when you can conduct a professional vibe check off of their name alone? If your first week of classes goes wrong and you need some back-ups, move these up to the top of your Crimson Cart.
As we’ve come back to campus in person and braved the joys and pains of in-person classes again, truly the only thing keeping us going is that proverbial light at the end of the thesis-grind tunnel. That light is a real, not Zoom commencement full of hugs, tears, and Instagrammable grad pics. And for our dear friends from the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 who disappeared into the void, I miss you! Consider this my desperate plea for you too.

A little known fact about Dean of the College Rakesh Khurana? He's also a Spotify playlist KING. Dive into the many excellent playlists from this iconic Dean – maybe he should pick up a DJ gig on the side?
Campus life is back and buzzing, and whether you're new to the scene or returning after a Zoom hiatus, we can all identify with the burning question: what is the deal with BoardPlus? Maybe you miss the good ol’ pre-Covid days of BoardPlus, or maybe you have never even heard of it before clicking on this article. Either way, we’re here to tell you what it is, what has changed, and how to take advantage of it.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a Harvard student in possession of a single hour of free time must be in want of a confusing situationship. If you’re such a student looking for some ways to add a little spice to the garbage pit of your love life, seek no further — our curated list of activities is sure to make whatever the hell you have going on worse (somehow).
