Harkness Tower
Excerpt from The Siege

Harkness Tower

     Someone yelled, "Harkness! It came from Harkness!"
     The gate turned out to be an arched tunnel that ran through a building from the open area I had just crossed, toward Elm Street. I joined about thirty students inside the tunnel. "What's Harkness?" I asked the kid standing closest to me.
     "The tower," he said, pointing toward the residence hall that was adjacent to Skull & Bones. My trusty map assigned Harkness Tower to Branford College. I had to figure out this college thing. I thought Yale was the college. What the hell were all these other colleges I'd never heard of?
