The Crimson reports on some petitions for improving student life submitted to the university, including one for a "a designated nap room in the Yard."

The T today turned on new digital ad screens at Harvard, in a move that could mean "millions of dollars of new advertising revenue for the MBTA in the coming years," the state Department of Transportation says.

Park Street Station, North Station and South Station will also get some of the large-screen TVs to beam ads and service info at the faces of commuters.

Harvard Station is equipped with three 70" Tri-Faced screens in a kiosk in the main atrium and five 55" Landscape Screens; one double-sided on the inbound platform and three single-sided across the track on the inbound platform.

The Harvard Square institution has turned to Kickstarter to try to raise the $140,000 it says it needs to install digital projectors and fix a creaky heating and air-conditioning system.

We will still show 35mm as much as possible, but as much as we like showing this format, many of the new films and restorations of classic films are only being provided in digital format now. So DCP is a necessary addition. But it'll cost us $90k to do it right.

And the future Masters of the Universe are not amused:

One sophomore, granted anonymity by The Crimson because she was afraid to be associated with a party that had been interrupted by police, was at the Delphic Saturday night when the police arrived. ... According to her, after word of the interruption spread, a few students shouted phrases like "fuck the police" and "it's the 5-0," a common slang for the police, while they made their way out the front door.
