Q: If Harvard had a smell, what would it be? ⠀

Sarah King ‘21⠀

“Mulch. It doesn’t smell like mulch ever, really, but when I came for Visitas, I think they redid the mulch. I came in through Agassiz, and they have really good landscaping, so I think they had fresh mulch. So that was the first thing I smelled here, and now every time I smell mulch I’m just like [inhales] 'Ah, Harvard'.” ⠀

Scholars from @motthallbridges were back on the Harvard campus, and this time they learned to beatbox! Mott Hall scholars first came to Harvard three years ago, after a fundraising project inspired by @humansofny. The trip is now an annual event. ⠀

In coordination with Project TEACH, an early college-awareness program at Harvard, the scholars learned beatboxing from instructor and Harvard alum Devon Guinn. Guinn told the group, "You don’t always have to study something traditional to have a successful education.”⠀

In high school, Jennie Kunes' friends suggested she join rowing as a coxswain because she is “small and loud.” Now, as a coxswain for Harvard men's heavyweight crew, she plays a role similar to a quarterback. ⠀

Q: What’s something you loved as an undergrad that you never thought you’d give up? ⠀

Kun Luo, M.Arch. ‘20, @quinnkunluo

“I was a drummer. I had a band, I was kind of a drum teacher, and I had performances every weekend. But now I totally lost all of that. I never play drums anymore.”⠀

We were excited to welcome back 70 scholars from @motthallbridges today! The scholars spent the day learning about a variety of new topics like the Gullah language, how to beatbox, and zebrafish.⠀

They were hosted by Harvard’s Public School Partnerships Team, which also brings more than 800 local middle schools to campus every year. Studies have shown that the middle school years are critical for developing a college-going identity. ⠀

Q: What’s taking up too much of your time?⠀

Mollie Todt ’18⠀

"That’s a really difficult question because I’m such an organizer. I really delegate well. So, I guess I would have to say sleep. I wish I could get less of it, but I have to have nine hours in order to be able to function. I work over at St. Peter’s School in Cambridge, so I’m up at 6:30." ⠀

Pets can help reduce stress, alleviate anxiety, and improve your health. At @countwaylibrary, students can spend time playing, relaxing, and de-stressing with therapy dogs. 🐕🐩 ⠀

Q: How do you take a break?⠀

Dan Kim ‘19⠀

"I like to run, I’m actually going to go on a run later today. It’s very therapeutic, and there are a lot of really nice running routes around here. Like Fresh Pond, down the river. There’s a castle all the way down in Somerville. It’s just a way to stop thinking about things."⠀

In 1968, Harvard students selected Martin Luther King Jr as their Class Day speaker. After King's assassination on April 4, 1968, Coretta Scott King agreed to speak in her husband's place on Class Day. ⠀

Just days before her speech, Robert F. Kennedy was killed in Los Angeles. On Class Day, King spoke to a Harvard audience about these two men who "were great and effective actors on the stage of history.”
