Summer is coming, and soon you will be left on your own without a professor to tell you what books are worth reading. But the literary grind never stops! Select the heading that most describes your emotional needs after this semester from hell and find the perfect reading experience for you, selected by me, an English concentrator who has an inflated sense of taste.
Visitas: Your first chance to make a good impression with the people who you’ll be seeing in the dining halls, doing group projects with, and living with for the next four years. If you play your cards right, you could meet the people who will become your best friends for the next four years, or at least the people you go to all the Visitas events with over the course of the weekend! We know the pandemic has killed everyone’s social skills, so we’re here to help you with what to do and what NOT to do.

If the answer is yes, Lowell might just be your new Harvard home.
Harvard Houses are assigned in a random lottery and zodiac signs seem like arbitrarily selected categories — but they still somehow each have extremely specific vibes. So, naturally, we matched them up, 12 for 12. Check your sun, moon, and rising Houses!
We know you can feel the existential crisis bubbling in the depths of your soul. But we can at least tell you what kind of crisis it will be if you tell us your plans for the week.
Since we know you’re busy reconfiguring your schedule so you’ll be in the same section as Hot Lecture Kid, we’ve put together a quick crash course tour of Boston with *modules* you can pick and choose from. By the end of this, plus a six-month winter, you’ll be able to call yourself a true Bostonian.
We know them, we love them, we claw our way through tourists in front of them — but have you ever wondered which Harvard Square business you are in your soul? Wonder no longer, because Flyby’s got you covered.
