Farmer’s Market

A haven of health at Harvard. These past few days have confirmed what the calendar has been trying to say for some time now: summer is behind us! And with it, the things that summer brings leave us as well; such as an abundance of fruit and sun, plenty of chances for fun exercise, and time to rest.

Application Anxiety

Musings on the waiting game. Before I even started the application process for medical school, I was convinced that taking the MCAT would be the worst part.  After all, what could be worse than spending hours upon hours studying for a seven-hour test that would dictate where you may or may not be able to apply to medical school?

The Great STI Quiz!

Do you know your stuff about STIs? Find out now through this very quiz! Q: Should you get tested for STIs more or less often than you get your car’s oil changed?

Adams Pool Preview

A conversation with the director of The Submission. On Friday, September 30th at 7:30pm, Adams Pool Theater played host to the staff, producers, director and audience of The Submission. This production is more than a one-way storytelling and invokes the participation of the audience through talkbacks immediately following the performance. The play, originally written by Jeff Talbott and first published in 2012, centers on the story of Danny and Emilie. Danny is a white gay man who has submitted his play about a struggling African American family to a preeminent arts festival under a name he thinks will give the play …
