Should Final Clubs Go Co-Ed? Survey Respondents Weigh In.

With punch season now in full swing, it’s time to present the results of Flyby’s first-ever Final Club Survey. The online survey was emailed out last month to 4,838 sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and was partially or fully completed 1,927 times (though it should be noted that individuals could have taken the survey more than once). In the third installment of a six-part series on the survey results, we take a look at perceptions related to exclusivity and prestige.

Campus Currencies: A Detailed Breakdown

I’ve spent time recently in Lamont Cafe, Annenberg, and Pennypacker basement, despite not being a freshman (extenuating circumstances for each, I swear!), and I’ve overheard way too many conversations to this effect: “Did you know Harvard gives us money to buy burritos??” “I heard that, but I want to save money to do laundry…” Actually, that's not quite how it works. Here’s a detailed breakdown of our campus currencies—not that we should need it, but we evidently do.

Warm weather returns to Cambridge today, so this may be a good opportunity to catch an outdoor soccer game before it gets chilly. Also on the calendar is an IOP panel on Syria with a rockstar lineup of speakers, the SEO Job Fair, and a book talk that might come in handy if you're planning on raising children any time soon. Happy hump day, Harvard!
