[stag_dropcap font_size=”50px” style=”normal”]T[/stag_dropcap]he Harbus has learned that the Hives within Batten Hall will close next week so that HBS authorities can try to remove a persistent bee infestation.
Sources close to the administration revealed that the dramatic decision to shut the Hives was taken after a number of students were stung by resident bees while attending a FIELD class of dubious value.
The bee problem has reportedly been an issue since the Hives opened in 2011.
“What we were trying to do was give a sexy name to weird classrooms with poor acoustics and worse sight lines,” said one administration official, who requested anonymity, “but instead we managed to create the perfect habitat for bees.”
Signs of the problem have been present for some time.
“I remember finding a weird, sticky discharge on the walls during the Strategic Brew simulation,” recalled one RC, “but I just assumed it was from those excessively mayonnaise’d turkey wraps in the brown bags.”
Rights to the Hives are reportedly being sought by a FIELD 3 team who are eager to pivot into selling hipster artisanal honey.
