Greek Life: I am not very aware.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: They have the best academics!

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: I have heard that it can get pretty cold. However, the campus has facilities which allow the students to go to the lecture rooms using tunnels.

Local Atmosphere: From what I have heard, it is great...

Guys & Girls: Although we have not met our batch mates in person yet, the bonding process has already begun... and I am already loving it.

Computers: No first hand experience yet.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I have not experienced this first hand as yet.

Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: I have still not experienced this first hand. So I cannot really say. But from what I have heard from my seniors and alumni, the students have parties in their dorms as well.

Overall Experience: The caring attitude of the officials towards the students is one of the best experiences that an international students can gain. And it is definitely given in Harvard.

Majors: I am very happy with the programme. There are over 400 courses to choose from and the course diversity is what I love most about it!

Diversity: Harvard accepts 180 students for its Masters' Degree from at least 70 countries. Hence, the diversity is superb and the graduates have more opportunities of learning from one another as well.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I still have to find about 15,000 $. Apart from that the university gave me a scholarship. It is need based scholarships. The applicants should genuinely state their wealth in the application process to make matters easier for the financial aid decision makers.

Off-Campus Dining: The previous rating is based on the research that I did on the net. I am yet to experience the dining experience.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We have a lot of great dining options, from your usual student fare to nice sit-down restaurants. More late-night options would be nice.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Walking or taking the shuttles is the primary way of getting around. Everything is within a 15 minute walk. To get to places outside of the Harvard bubble, the T is your best (and cheapest) bet.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Look to I, Too, Am Harvard to see how well our school does with racial equality. Luckily, the conservatives on campus are few and far between.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Adams House is the best house.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The program is small but caring, and the courses are diverse and informative. There is much to be done about accommodations for students with underlying disabilities/illnesses.

1 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Harvard is getting this poor rating because of it's blatant disregard for survivors of sexual assault.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Expect a good portion of the spring semester to be cold, snowy, and grey.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Harvard students are pretty good about their alcohol. Drinking happens on the weekends, and there are policies put in place so you can get help without penalty if the need arises.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Harvard gives you an unparalleled opportunity to interact with amazing peers and faculty members. Unfortunately, some of the experience is overshadowed by a feeling of pressure everyone has that the administration loves to gloss over.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: People only get excited about sports around Harvard/Yale or the NCAA, but we're decent.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid is wonderful here. If your household income is under 60k, expect to be taken care of.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Challenging, rigorous, and positive all describe students’ overall experience at Harvard. The academic challenge initially seems daunting to many students, but the intellectual growth facilitated by this academic powerhouse leaves students pleasantly surprised. The social life of most Harvard students acts as a counterbalance to the intellectual challenge, and not surprisingly, students forge lifetime memories and friends throughout their four years at Harvard.

The Harvard experience leaves most students yearning for more. The University provides undergraduates with a rich history, unparalleled cultural diversity, and intellectual rigor that challenge each student to fulfill every ounce of their potential. Students leave the University satisfied, prepared, and stronger, more aware global citizens than when they entered.
