Due to further guidance from the College, the Houses have been asked to hold our housing lotteries until mid-April. However, I’m sure next semester is on your mind, so I will host a Q&A event about the lottery this Thursday at 5 p.m. EST via zoom. I’ll chat about the lottery process and answer any questions you may have. The link is on the Cabot Calendar.

So my stories feature ghosts, doppelgangers, strange experiences all around. I wanted to read the titular story at Cabot Read Aloud sometime in the spring.

Housing Lottery opening April 2

March 23, 2020
During the normal school year, we would now open our housing lottery to help you all choose your housing for the next year.  The College has asked all Houses to suspend their housing lotteries for 2 weeks, so the current plan is to open the lottery on April 2.  The lottery process in Cabot has been described in the past as “super chill.” The hope is that we can continue this tradition online. If you want to get an idea of how it normally works, you can check out last year’s lottery site—http://tinyurl.com/cabotlottery19.
