Happy Wednesday, Harvard! The end is so close– that is the end to this semester, your sleep-deprived self, having to walk through a sea of tourists just to get anywhere lately, and everything else Harvard-related!


It’s going to be a bit chillier today, and by chillier we mean around 65 degrees! It’s also going to be partly cloudy and windy.
