5 College Senior

Overall Experience: There's no better undergraduate experience out there. The professors at Amherst are teachers first, researchers second. Their primary purpose is to create the best intellectual experience for undergraduates. No Ivy (save Dartmouth) can claim the same.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining will become your best friend, especially during your dreaded days at Annenberg. However, you probably should have a steady line of income because eating isn't necessarily the cheapest in Harvard Square. Those late night trips to CVS can start to add up quickly.

Scholarships: Financial aid at Harvard is need-based and a complete blessing to those who get it. However, Harvard's definition of "need" leaves a lot to be desired because there is a lot of us who fall into the middle of the lot and are not qualified for aid but could really use it. Harvard should definitely review and revamp its financial aid program.

Party Scene: Let's just say we're Harvard, and we're known for our academics not our parties.

Campus Food: Most of the time, the dining halls can leave a lot to be desired. Sometimes, they surprise us and the food is pretty good. The food options around Harvard can tend to be a little pricey for a college student's budget...we're not all heirs to an enormous fortune.

Campus Housing: Living on campus has been one of the best experiences of my freshmen year. The housing is really nice and the housing lottery for upperclassmen houses is random and worked out well for me. The freshman dining hall could be better, but otherwise, it's a dream come true.

Campus Food: The food in Annenberg is alright, but it's great to be able to eat with friends. Upperclassmen dining halls have somewhat better food.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
