If MIT Dorms Were Characters In Harry Potter

The best game of guess who!

If MIT Dorms Were Characters In Harry Potter
Lovelace Media

MIT is widely regarded as a magical place... if the MIT dorms were characters in Harry Potter, here's who they'd be.


Baker’s full of athletes who’ve always got their head in the game just like Quidditch captain Oliver Wood.

Burton Conner

Burton Conner is all about family and a resistance to authority, just like the oldest Weasley child, Bill.

East Campus

Vibrant personalities and hair are key ingredients to East Campus living that are mirrored in Nymphadora Tonks.


MacGregor makes its presence always known since it’s so tall and MacCon has the best means of satisfying late night cravings, something Ron Weasley would appreciate.


Classy and sophisticated, Maseeh residents get the most food and the shortest commute — sounds like someone’s father had something to do with this, Draco Malfoy.


Studious, clever, and driven, the women of McCormick emulate Hermione Granger.

New House

Every once in awhile, New House has an accident... not unlike Seamus Finnegan.

Next House

Next House keeps doing amazing things like Next Haunt that come as surprises to the rest of campus — just like Neville who also became real awesome real fast.


Small but with a big heart and full of kindness, Random is our favorite house elf, Dobby.

Senior House

Senior House is full of pranksters with a healthy disregard for authority who don’t actually need to be at MIT to be successful, just like Fred and George who brought excitement into the rest of the school. (Plus, Fred was taken from George unfairly and too soon, as were the 2020 Freshmen from Senior House...)


Dreamy, far away, and full of color, Simmons is Luna Lovegood.

(Let's shed a tear for) Bexley

Mischievous and rebellious, Bexley is still not understood even now that it’s gone... just like Sirius Black.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
