Goodbye 70-degree days (mostly) — fall has arrived in full force and, so it’s (finally?) time to spend our days trekking over a warm-colored mosaic of leaves and wondering when we’ll next slip on a pile of them. In case your impromptu slip-and-slide pushes you into a horde of tourists, Flyby’s got you covered with this bingo card to turn even the most awkward encounters into a win.
Every season is spooky season when you go to Harvard and have a monstrous amount of scary psets, papers, and readings piling up every week. Take this quiz to judge whether your scholarly scares have prepared you to survive the horrors of Haunted Harvard. Will you be the genius who beats the system or will you be dead in the first five minutes?
First-years: it’s been over a month since you first met the perfect stranger(s) Harvard promised you’d get along with. Maybe you immediately clicked, or maybe their ability to live in filth and inability to replace the toilet paper in your in-suite bathroom have pushed you to consider transferring to Yale.
Cutco. Herbalife. Avon. Check out the flowchart to see if your club will join the roster of the most famous multi-level marketing (MLM) schemes (a.k.a legal pyramid schemes for all you naive humanities concentrators) – maybe you’ll end up selling knives or passing out Insomnia Cookies outside the Science Center too. Only time will tell.
Considering that Harvard students signed a contract with the devil (academia) to spend every waking hour working, it is no surprise that they will do anything, especially listening to music, to make it more fun and/or efficient. Sometimes it feels like the audio is our only companion in the encroaching loneliness of Lamont. However, nothing we hold dear is safe from the Criticisms of Society, so we have decided to judge your listening choices and convict them of having certain ~vibes~.
We already seem to be at that time of the semester where going to lecture seems like simply too much effort. So if you needed extra motivation to show up at those 9 a.m.s – or even 10:30s – now you can play along to Flyby’s lecture bingo to keep you alert during those 75 minutes.
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! ;-)
Visitas: a tradition beloved by pre-frosh and upperclassmen alike (or deeply hated, depending on who you're asking). Besides leaving with newly made friends, 100 more Instagram followers, random club merch, and free food, some of you may even be walking away with a new boo in tow. But not all relationships are built to last.... will yours?
Whether you need to grab a last-minute birthday card or snag a late-night burrito, the Square has you covered. Since there are so many options to choose from, your go-to spots are very telling about the inner workings of your personality. Got any red flags? Well, you do now. Take this quiz to reveal them.
Although Disney’s love letter to Colombia, “Encanto,” was released in November 2021, the movie has been taking over social media for months, and you would be of a rare species if you haven’t heard the alluring earworm that is “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.” Here, we’ve assigned an “Encanto” character to each of the Houses, so welcome to the family Madrigal (and the Harvard houses)!
We have a variety of coffee shops to choose from here in Harvard Square. Whether your drink is a latte, plain black coffee (what's wrong with you), or you're not a coffee person at all, take this quiz to find out which shop best matches you!
Valentine's day is next week and while we don't have the power to conjure a significant other for you in time to partake in American consumerism and this sacred holiday, we do have the power to guess (or manifest) what your relationship status will be. Just tell us your HUDS brunch choices — it's that easy.
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.
The release of “Red (Taylor’s Version)” has rocked Swifties’ worlds like no other. Fans everywhere have been listening to the album on repeat (taking breaks only to watch her short film and SNL features and maybe eat). But not all Swifties are created equal. If you’re still reeling from “All Too Well: The Short Film” and need a distraction, take this quiz to find out what kind of “Red (Taylor’s Version)” listener you are!
To procrastinate on everything else I should be doing, I created this Tag Yourself: Rakesh Edition to determine which version of Dean Khurana you align with most. All photos are sourced from his lovely Instagram (which you are now following if you weren’t previously). Stop what you’re doing and tag urself RIGHT NOW.
Although the eight Ivy League schools boast diverse student bodies, each still has their own unique characteristics and identity. Thus, using a comprehensive Google search to analyze Harvard and its seven Ivy League siblings, Flyby presents the definitive list of Ivy League schools as email send offs.
Wondering what vibes your Virtual Visitas habits give off? Hoping to get a sense for what your life will actually be like at Harvard? Check out this quiz and let our writer completely psychoanalyze all of your decisions! (jk, we promise it's not that deep)
Ah, Virtual Visitas. So many events, so little time. With the absurd amount of events happening all throughout this upcoming week, how on earth do you prioritize? Luckily, our writer has the vibe check for deciding whether you should check out that one random club's Zoom meeting, or press that "leave meeting" button ASAP.
Visitas may be online yet again this year, but that doesn't mean you can't still have the iconic Harvard experience you've been waiting for eagerly! Sure, it may all be online, but there's plenty of essential experiences you can hit to get your time at Harvard started on the right foot.
During this virtual semester, even the smallest things truly bring us so much joy – like, for example, one of the newer go-to food spots in Harvard Square, Playa Bowls! For those of us who want to feel like we're eating healthy but Sweetgreen just isn't quite doing it, we've got the bowl that you truly ~embody~ to order on your next visit.
Maybe your screen time has been going wild during quarantine, maybe texting is your love language, or maybe your communication style has just turned into complete shit all around. Either way, we've got your true inner alignment based on your best (and worst) texting habits.
It’s that point in the winter where we’ve seen our fair share of winter weather fashion statements. Check out our ~winter weather~ alignment chart before the sun actually returns to Cambridge to find out just where you (and everyone else you judge) fall in the grand scheme of winter apparel.
