Blame Harvard for this annoying Boston accent test by Eric Randall

Today, in cars laden with mini-fridges and movie posters, the Harvard class of 2019 moves into the freshman dormitories on Harvard Yard. It’s a special day in the Boston area. After all, it marks one of the few instances when someone with a Boston accent might actually instruct people to — wait for it — “pahk the cah on Hahvahd Yahd.”

Apart from this occasion, car access to the Yard is limited to nonexistent. “We are very strict as far as who we allow in,” says Maureen A. McCarthy, manager of Harvard Yard and freshmen dormitories. “We have a lot of pedestrians and tourists so for safety concerns and just appearance, too, we limit vehicles.” Even the cars carrying new freshmen onto campus have just 20 minutes to unload before moving on. “They’re not parked here all day while they go to lunch,” McCarthy says. “We keep a close eye on that.”
