For more than a decade, the tradition of “Housing Day videos” expanded the festivities from Harvard Yard to YouTube, where several videos have received tens of thousands of views. This year, the videos also gave many freshmen a first glimpse at their Houses.
Each spring Harvard first-years are sorted into one of twelve upperclassmen houses, where they will spend their next three years. We set out across the Yard to see how the Class of 2024 reacted to the results of this year's virtual Housing Day.
So you've learned all about your new House, but you're realizing you're looking for something... different. Something... funky, independent, and in love with Kenny G. Well, does Flyby have the place for you! Enjoy our writers' deep dive into this lovable not-quite-a-House-but-a-hype-community!
Associate Dean of Students Lauren E. Brandt ’01 and Associate Dean of Students for Inclusion and Belonging Alta Mauro discussed virtual Housing Day and the Dean of Students Office’s commitment to anti-racism in a March 1 interview.
