4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Harvard is a very "clique"-y school. If you're on the inside of things, you can have a great social life. Final clubs generally list parties so you need to know someone to get into them. Dorm parties can be very crowded and only happen on the weekend. However, if you have a wide-spread friend group, you can go out/find something to do most nights.

Computers: There are labs all over the place and tech support located right by where most classes are. Most people have laptops. The entire campus is wifi and it is pretty reliable. Sometimes it takes a second to connect.

Parking: Cambridge is in a city so parking is difficult. Rates tend to be around $150-$200 a month I think, but not many people have cars. I was talking to someone with a car who said she pays $75 a month but I am not positive this is true. Overnight parking is really easy for people visiting on weekends. Harvard charges around $5-10 for the day and after 11pm its free.

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.
