26 Vocab Words For the Class of 2026

With the return to campus, we’ve seen the return to our favorite Harvard lingo that we know and love (and hate). From “Berg” to “paff” to “basty” to “HUA,” not even Harvard students can keep up with the new vernacular, let alone the class of 2026. If you’re a pre-frosh or even just a Havard student who’s a little lost, look no further — we’re proud to present to you Flyby’s annual Harvard lingo breakdown: Class of 2026 edition.

Red pickled onions, flaked parmesan, fresh olives and peppers, what more could one wish for?

Flyby’s Guide to Falling in Love with Fall

Finally having an in-person semester means the return of midterms, men in suits, and David Malan’s sweat. If that isn’t enough to look forward to, being on campus means we’ll finally be able to enjoy New England’s least-worst season: fall! With the official start of fall happening tomorrow – and as a New England native – here are my favorite ways to enjoy the fall that doesn’t involve crying over midterms.

If there’s one good thing that this past year has given us, it’s the expansion of the HUDS MCU: Milk Cinematic Universe. With new additions to the revolving cast of HUDS milk such as Oatly and Almond Breeze, the options are bountiful and endless.

TikTok Powerpoint Night Inspo: Harvard Edition

If you’ve ever spent even a second on TikTok, you’re already familiar with the PowerPoint trend, where you and a bunch of friends each choose a topic of your choice to present on it.
