In Short

The 46th Head of the Charles Regatta takes place this weekend in Cambridge. First races begin at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Parking in Cambridge will be a complete zoo, so don’t plan on driving in Cambridge at all. See for details.

Fire alarms in dormitories have been going off frequently. Fire alarms were pulled multiple times in the early morning hours Tuesday in both parallels of East Campus, as well as the Media Lab and Senior House. Those incidents are under investigation by the Campus Police. Seperately, MacGregor has seen multiple fire alarms, but those have resulted from actual fires; Dennis Collins, MIT’s Director of Housing, held a meeting with MacGregor residents last night to discuss fire safety.
