Harvard is the oldest institution for higher education in the country located just across the Charles river from Boston. The university was founded in 1636 and has been renowned for many years for its Law and Business schools. When most people think of Harvard they probably think of the earnest and diligent students who spend countless hours studying.
What many people may not know is that all that studying leads to some anxious moments when exam time comes around. An event known as Primal Scream takes place on the night of the first day of final exams in each semester. At midnight students run around Harvard Yard in the nude while screaming. With temperatures in the 30’s or 40’s in December you’d better run fast.
