Times are hard, indeed!
The Crimson reports:
(Harvard’s) first Faculty meeting of the year kicked off without a regular staple: cookies to complement professorsâ€™ tea and coffee.
â€œThis is the first time in modern times with no cookies,â€ Faculty Council member Harry R. Lewis â€™68 said as he held a white mug of tea. â€œWe are sharing the pain with the undergraduates.â€
â€œAs part of our cost-cutting efforts, weâ€™re doing our little part here in our Faculty meetings, saving about $500 per meeting for cookies and coffee,â€ Faculty of Arts and Sciences Dean Michael D. Smith explained during the meeting.
