How To: Do Visitas Right

​Visitas, Harvard’s annual pre-freshman visit weekend, comes only once a year.

But on the other end, visiting pre-freshman have big questions on their minds - will I fit in here? Is Harvard ~right~? If you’re in that boat, this post is for you.

Quincy House: Stone Hall


<p>If the dining hall restrictions of no freshman and strict “+1 guest only” rules at Quincy’s popular dining hall are any indication, this house is in many ways the center of dining life on the River. Old Quincy, known as Stone Hall, has been renovated in recent years and reflects the traditional Harvard look of many of the houses along the River, while New Quincy boasts fully-furnished singles within a duplex that are popular for juniors and seniors within the House. New freshman penguins (the house mascot) will enjoy late night treats at the unrivaled Quincy Grille or at the comfortable, renovated “Innovation Space” in Stone Hall’s basement. Despite some controversial dining hall murals, freshman placed in Quincy on Housing Day have plenty of reasons to celebrate. </p>
