Stripes #3 (10-17-06)
Towards the end of their first year, Harvard freshmen are sorted into an upperclassmen House where they'll live for the next three years of college. There's no Sorting Hat, but it's an exciting event for everyone.
There are some Houses by the Charles River and three Houses up at the Quad. Many freshmen are scared to get "Quaded" because it's a ten-minute walk, but honestly those kids are just wimps. The Quad isn't that bad.
Nevertheless, this is pretty much what happened to my blocking group when we found out we were Quaded. We love it now, though!
