December 04, 2018

A pair of lawsuits filed Monday by several fraternities and sororities challenge sanctions that Harvard University (MA) imposed on unofficial clubs that have played a longstanding role in the campus’s social scene. The lawsuits, in federal and state court, claim the university discriminates against students based on their gender and their membership to single-sex organizations. Harvard approved sanctions in 2016 and completed them last year against students who belong to single-sex fraternities, sororities and the secretive all-male groups called final clubs.

What Time Is It at Berkeley? Ten Minutes Past Reality

December 04, 2018

Students at Harvard University and the University of Michigan learned a new lesson this year: How to tell time.  
Both schools had decadeslong traditions of fudging the clock, starting classes and meetings up to 10 minutes after the official scheduled hour, but scrapped the policies this year. Now students face the harsh reality of getting to class on time.
