AI Images: Where Seeing Isn’t Believing

Up until now, we've evaluated the trustworthiness of where information comes from, how it’s been generated, and the context in which it’s presented. But the newest generation of imaging tools threatens to change that.

The Conveyor Belt To Corporate Law

So, to all students interested in using law to change the world: Don’t let yourself get swept up in the corporate current. Recognize the structural forces you will need to constantly resist. Otherwise, you’ll probably wake up in 20 years at a large law firm, whether or not that’s what you really wanted.

You Just Can’t Get Lost

In the labyrinth, as in our academic and personal journeys, the winding path itself holds as much significance as the endpoint. Every twist and turn, every moment of introspection, adds depth to our experience. The labyrinth has one path that always leads to the center.

SENIOR SALE: Clearing Closet and Conscience

For the sake of our environment and culture, we should undoubtedly think more about fulfilling our community needs before haphazardly throwing used goods up for sale. But at their best, senior sales hold a glimmer of hope for building a more sustainable culture on our campus.

Wikipedia: A Model for Better Discourse on Campus

When it comes to civil discourse, Wikipedia (ironically) doesn’t have all the answers, but its approach to debate outshines much of what we often see here at Harvard. As we look for ways to foster open dialogue on campus, we should take cues from the Free Encyclopedia.

It’s Deeper Than Hot Breakfast

We must push back against this repeated cycle of austerity by challenging the value system of our institution. That means organizing and building coalitions with each other around issues that mutually affect us — including when it comes to hot breakfast.

We Built the Harvard Bubble. It’s Time to Pop It.

It’s long past time for us to pop the Harvard bubble. By establishing relationships with the local communities we’ve ignored for far too long, we can begin to deconstruct the ivory tower we’ve built, brick by brick.

We Feel the Heat

Where is the acknowledgment that we’re in an emergency? The solution isn’t as simple as installing more air conditioning units or more solar panels. Addressing the climate crisis long-term will require transforming our buildings, our consumption, and our approach to energy.

Seven Sisters and the Old Boys’ Club

Though Radcliffe continues to do important work, perhaps it is time to revisit the role it can play in the undergraduate experience. Calling for its revitalization as a resource for undergraduates is only the beginning of my attempt to understand how women continue to carve out a place for themselves at this storied old boys’ club.

SCOTUS Says Black People Can Go To War, But Not To Class

By stating that military academies stand to benefit from race-conscious affirmative action, the Court appears to blatantly admit that diversity is both beneficial and necessary in those spaces. Then, regardless of the opinion’s ambiguous language, this footnote implies something far more sinister.

Courting Complicity: Harvard’s Tolerance of Anti-Queerness

For Harvard to meet its obligations to inclusivity, it can no longer simply default to platitudes. It must instead leverage its stature to highlight the adverse educational impacts of anti-trans discrimination and affirm those impacted — or else tolerate an educational status quo rapidly descending into anti-queerness.

Turning the Light on Protestantism and Harvard’s Hypocrisy

Harvard’s past as an exclusive, elite institution is oftentimes talked about in terms of race, gender, sexuality, and socioeconomic status. We must add religion as a facet of the conversation. Religion at Harvard goes far beyond the visible spires and facades — it rests, invisible, inside, waiting for us to turn on the lights.

You Need to Leaf Lamont

Dudley Garden isn't just a place; it's a reminder. No matter how towering the pile of problem sets, how crucial that upcoming interview, or how intense those club comps, there's always a moment to be found for pure, unadulterated joy. And sometimes, that joy is as simple as sitting in a quiet garden, letting the world fade away.

Harvard’s AI Guidance: A Lesson in Binary Thinking

In an era where ChatGPT will soon be as common as calculators, Harvard's stance on AI in the classroom should be more than a binary decision — it should be an open dialogue that empowers students to navigate the AI landscape with wisdom and creativity.
