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.
With Valentine's Day coming up quick, you might be looking to do some ~self-reflection~. What better way to do so than to figure out what your Harvard love language may be? You might not actually be receiving any Jefe's dates or Canada Goose jackets anytime soon, but at least you'll be ready for that next quarantine fling!
With Valentine’s Day coming up quick, now's really the time to shoot those last minute shots! Whether you’ve been all up in Tinder, sliding in the ZM's, or perhaps sending messenger pigeons, we've got the next best way of finally deducing why your latest virtual crush hasn’t texted you back yet (besides, you know, just asking them).
It’s that time of the year again! We’re deep into the season treasured more than any other by the overachieving high schoolers eventually accepted to the hype Harvard institution. College admission season is upon us, and this year it’s going to be wilder than ever. But imagine, Harvard doesn’t exist, and it never has. All of us currently attending Forbes’s number one school in the world definitely would have ended up at some other Ivy League establishment.
‘Tis the season for... reading period! This year, reading period looks quite a bit different in more ways than one. I mean, who doesn't dream of studying for final exams in their childhood bedroom as they're being stared down by the five-foot horse poster that's been living on the wall ever since their horse girl phase in 2010? That's right, nobody. In any case, my motivation levels are all over the place, so hopefully you relate to this desperate cry into the void too.
Candles are pretty cool. They gift the ever-questionably smelling dorm room with immaculate fragrance, they create the perfect ambiance for college activities that demand suboptimal lighting (wink, wink), and they add another lovely level of pretentiousness to the already very pretentious Harvard institution. At least, that’s how we would think of them if they were allowed in our rooms. Imagine that you could keep a candle without fear of fire, and consider that it's nearly time for turkeys and Santa to start showing up. Keep reading to find out what winter-scented Yankee candle would really spice up your transformative Harvard experience this holiday season.
