My Harvard Housing email came in today! I’m staying in Wigglesworth
I know : ) I laughed too. How does a school like Harvard have a dorm hall named Wigglesworth?! Regardless of the name (I can’t say it with a straight face) I couldn’t be happier.
“the Yard’s most oddly shaped dorm, consists of several sections strung out along busy Mass. Ave. Its spacious triple and quadruple suites have a close-up view of lively street activity, and traffic quiets down late at night so residents can sleep. Wigg is also the most recently renovated first-year dorm”
It’s right up next to Massachusetts Ave.
AKA, right next door to all the shopping and resturants and convienent CVS’s of the Harvard Sqare. JP Licks is like, less than 3 minutes away. Hello Freshman 15! My name is Monica and we’re going to become good friends this year as I feast on bowl upon bowl of delicious gourmet handmade ice cream.
My house has a cheer. “Go Wigg or Go Home!”
I will definitely be yelling that out at the earliest window of opportunity.
My three suitemates and I already had a three hour+ marathon group chat session on Facebook. Within the first 10 minutes of all four of us friending each other. We talked about everything. Celebrity crushes, possible color schemes, favorite books, movies, musicals, everything. We already planned a suite bonding shopping trip to the Urban Outfitters right across in the Harvard Yard. One of my suitemates turns 18 the day after move in, we’ve already got plans for her cake. It’s almost scary how great we all get along so early in the game. I know things might change once we start living together….but I don’t think I’ll ever have issues with them when they all love Singing in the Rain, and Frank Ocean, and Tokyo Police Club, and thrift store shopping. Plus, the fact that all four of us debated over the color teal vs turquoise as a base for the decor of our common area/living room speaks volumes. These girls have my interests at heart already!
The only one I can think of is that WiggyWiggy is kind of far from the freshman dining hall. Win some lose some : ) And it’s really not even a con to me just a minor inconvenience at most.
The countdown begins. One month and ONE DAY till I get on that plane!
