Harvard Graduate Commons

GCP x Daybreaker
End of the Year Celebration

To conclude our tenth anniversary celebration series, Graduate Commons hosted one BIG “end of the year” bash for all areas of Harvard Housing. Together with the help of Daybreaker company, we took over the Smith Campus Center to hold a morning of yoga and dance fitness for all residents. Attendees displayed their “area pride” by sporting their assigned color (PT – Red, Gardenside – Green, Western – Blue).

It was a day focused on physical and mental wellness, designed to shake out those pre-exam nerves at the onset of reading period. Families also got in on the fun! Our “Kids Corner” included a facepainter and a healthy eating activity, provided by the Chan School of Public Health. Members of the Boston Drag Queen Story Hour team also read stories to children about gender inclusion and gender expression. The event served as an important reminder to make time for oneself, especially during periods of high stress in the academic year.
