A Season to Remember

Crimson Hockey reinvigorated despite final loss. By TUSHAR DWIVEDI   Recently, my hometown of Chicago has been abuzz in the world of hockey. With the rise and prominence of the Blackhawks, a new pride has enveloped the city that not just complements, but often overrides the typical baseball, basketball, and football interests. However, while I have not been to United Center, Chicago’s prime hockey and basketball stadium, in almost a year, the Harvard’s men’s ice hockey team just returned from their visit. This visit, however, was far beyond the ordinary. The team was representing Harvard in the Frozen Four for …

Engage!

An afternoon with Drew Faust. By CAROLINE CRONIN & PULKIT AGARWAL   The Inclusion and Belonging Task Force at Harvard has been met with a variety of reactions this year. Its origins are muddied by the ongoing debate on administration enforced sanctions relating to single gender social organizations and the perceived hypocrisy of many of the University’s actions. However, on Wednesday April 5, University President Drew Faust held a 3 hour-long event in Sanders Theater to expound on the ideals and aims of the Task Force. Since the Task Force’s creation by Faust in September 2016, it has been operating …

A Rough Transition

The Indy takes a look at recent developments in the political landscape. For many traditional inhabitants of Washington, which voted overwhelmingly against President Trump in November, uncertainty has characterized much of the recent transition in the White House. Last Friday at noon, some of this uncertainty was resolved as the new President was finally inaugurated after two months of intense speculation about the acceptability of his cabinet and legitimacy of the election result. It makes sense, therefore, to summarize some of the key tussles that the executive encountered in what appeared to be an unprecedentedly complicated transition. At the very …

Harvard vs. Yale

A Nutmegger’s perspective. Location, location, location The most obvious comparison to make between Harvard and Yale is their locations. While Harvard is situated along the Charles River in Cambridge, with lots of other colleges nearby, Yale is the centerpiece of…. New Haven. I grew up about half an hour from New Haven, and I’ll be the first to tell you that it’s nothing to call home about. It often smells like swamp when the tide is low and Yale itself is one of the city’s few redeeming qualities. I really only ventured to New Haven for a few reasons—Yale New …

Dating Apps, Decoded

Some words of wisdom. Two years ago, I decided to get Tinder so that I could write an article about dating apps. You know, for research purposes. I couldn’t imagine actually trying to meet somebody through an app. After all, what would we tell the children if it worked out?! As a matter of fact, though, according to the Pew Research Center, 5% of married American couples met their significant other online, and—if they are honest— that is what they will tell their children. Although 5% does not seem like many people, it is important to note that the use …

What to do when he prematurely ejaculates and refuses to put in effort to get you off, too. By HUNTER RICHARDS You really thought you found the one: He is smart, kind of tall, funny, and said he loves giving head. What more could you really ask for? So when you’ve been seeing each other for a while now and he just brought you food all the way to the Quad from the River, it seems like it is all working out. Then it happens. He promises this has never happened before…but by the third time you guys hook up …

Violins and Valentines

A quick sampler of som e of what the late romantic classical pantheon has to offer on Valentine’s Day. So it’s another early spring season, and with the usual return-to-psets-and-readings antics of a spring semester at Harvard comes the inevitable scramble for classes, summer recommendation letters, and Valentine’s Day plans. For all our readers in established or potentially soon-to-be-established relationships, however, we at the Indy want to remind you of one essential facet of any successful Valentine’s Day: appropriate mood music. Of course, there are the usual selections from the last fifty or so years of the modern pop-music tradition …
