"I have so many great memories! But I guess my favorite Harvard memory, except the off-campus things I did with Harvard people such as spring breaks, is Housing Day when I was a freshman. Six of my block mates and I walked into Stoughton to meet our other blockmate. I remember all 8 of us, walking by the upperclassmen crowd in front of the Harvard Statue waiting and nervously chattering about which house we would get. We waited for around an hour and no house came for us. We kept on shouting in the room trying to figure out which house was coming towards Stoughton. Eventually, we heard Leverites frantically knocking on our door and we started dancing and cheering and clapping. Even after they left, we kept on dancing and hugging each other. That day was simply remarkable and unforgettable for me!"
