The quality House life is enriched through both formal and informal interactions between students and members of the Senior Common Room (SCR). The SCR is comprised of the Masters, Resident and Non-Resident Tutors, University professors, alumni, community members, visiting scholars, and administrators. This provides undergraduates with a valuable opportunity to seek support and to learn from members of the Harvard community at various stages of their academic and professional careers.
Each year, Dunster Students are invited to participate in one of three formal SCR Dinners, which are typically held in October, December, and February. In April, Dunster students are invited to attend the annual SCR “Red Tie Dinner,” during which students make predictions for the following year. This Dunster House tradition dates back to the 1930s, and is one of our most popular events.
