We’ve rounded up some of the stereotypical summer activities and jobs Harvard kids get up to on summer break.
Following the scoreboard, perhaps the second most horrifying thing from The Game was the wild turkey mascot we all saw running through the stands. Sure, it was funny in the moment to pose for a selfie with it, but imagine if our new game day mantras become “Go Turkeys!” or “Gobble Gobble”… yikes!
Fall has many moods. Some days, the sun hits the newly yellowed leaves in just the right way and all feels right in the world. Other days, you have to pull your jacket a little closer so the Cambridge winds and midterm burnout don’t sweep you away. Here’s a playlist for all those moods.

We already seem to be at that time of the semester where going to lecture seems like simply too much effort. So if you needed extra motivation to show up at those 9 a.m.s – or even 10:30s – now you can play along to Flyby’s lecture bingo to keep you alert during those 75 minutes.
Walking through the Yard these days makes me happy. Long gone are the days when it would already be dark when I walked into my 4:30 p.m. section in Emerson.

Spring makes me want to be more efficient in my work and appreciate these simpler pleasures.

Do you miss John from Annenberg already? Then you better pray that the Housing Gods put in his new house — Dunster! If you end up in Dunster, you can boast about your room’s unobstructed view of the Charles and dominance in intramurals over a meal in the beautiful dining hall, while making your engineering friends jealous that you don’t need a shuttle to get to the SEC.
Four misfits walk onto a luxury yacht and what follows is two hours filled with eccentric characters, clever jokes, and some good old-fashioned petty drama.
I find it very satisfying to take this physical media and representation of art and put all this care into queuing up the vinyl, making sure the audio sounds right, and then playing it on air.
Remember back in 3rd grade when Valentine’s Day was all about delivering mini cards with candy taped to them to every single one of your classmates and not about swiping through your Instagram stories sad because you’re single? Relive the glory days by reading this piece where Flyby tried to recreate this elementary school tradition.
It’s much easier to spend the next 10 minutes scrolling through Instagram instead of walking over to the MAC, let alone spending the next 30 minutes half-jogging, half-walking on a treadmill with a mask on. So we’re here to show you some gym-free ways to get your sweat on and help your New Year’s resolutions survive the start of the spring semester.
