"It’s almost impossible to choose just one favorite memory at Harvard—sledding down Widener Steps in the blizzard of freshman winter, the Harry Potter- reminiscent thrill of getting “sorted” on Housing Day, dancing in Ghungroo with 20 new friends, playing volleyball with my blockmate at the Dunster Goat Roast, running barefoot down Mount Auburn Street with my roommate after formal, heels in hand, welcoming freshmen to campus during Opening Days, and the triumph of winning our fourth consecutive Harvard-Yale Game all compete for top billing. Senior Champagne Brunch is definitely close to number one though, for the way it brought so many friends and friendly faces into one space. It brought into focus one of the things I’ll miss most about Harvard: living within walking distance of all my favorite people!"
