In July 2017, a Harvard committee pointed to Bowdoin College as a model for eradicating final clubs, sororities, and fraternities from campus social life.
This preliminary recommendation would take effect in with the incoming class of 2018, so all currently enrolled student, would be exempt.
Since 1984, none of these all-male or all-female social organizations has been recognized by the school.
While a small number of these organizations have begun to admit both sexes, most do not—the reason, in general, that Harvard College refuses to recognize them. Club closed, in 1995, after an assault of a football recruit occurred at its clubhouse.
For the moment, at least, those implications are likely still years away.
At just 19, Obama’s long-term romantic trajectory is impossible to predict.
Social clubs exist at Harvard College that are unrecognized by Harvard itself.
“In short, no matter the personal cost,” Banks said, “black women are encouraged to marry ‘down’ before they marry ‘out.'” So far, Obama’s kiss is been met with relatively little backlash.
The Bee Club rents space from the Fly Club at 45 Dunster Street in a building that was previously the D. In the fall of 2015, Harvard President Drew Faust criticized the clubs for—as stated by C.
Ramsey Fahs of The Harvard Crimson—their "alleged gender exclusivity and the potential for alcohol abuse and sexual assault on the off-campus properties." that students entering in the fall of 2017 or later who join unrecognized single-sex organizations (such as single-sex final clubs, fraternities, and sororities) will be barred from campus leadership positions such as team captaincies, and from receiving recommendation letters from Harvard requisite for scholarships and fellowships.
The families of presidents have always been the subject of tabloid fascination, but Malia Obama, like her father Barack Obama before her, inhabits an unprecedented position in America’s centuries-long race debate.
Many, including other first daughters past and present, have argued quite reasonably that the press should leave Malia alone. Never before has such a high-profile young woman of color navigated her way through the Ivy League dating pool.
