Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus and they are pushing a lot about preventing sexual assault. They have an amnesty policy on drinking if anyone needs help which is reassuring. They care about the students and everyone being okay.

Health & Safety: I always felt safe walking around on campus, day or night. However, it is very easy for tourists to get into the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I felt as if the process by which freshman roommates are chosen was not effective in my case because my roommate and I had nothing in common and had many problems halfway through the year (leading us to separate rooms). The upperclassmen lottery to Leverett was stressful because there weren't enough options for blocking/rooming groups to stay together. Other than that, I liked Thayer and am excited to live in Leverett.

Athletics: I think that Harvard is very subtle in its adoration for sports. It has the most division I NCAA teams of any school in the country, but you'd hardly know it from the outside looking in.

Overall Experience: Everything is strong here at Harvard except for the social life, which is obviously a big part of the college experience. It does get better as you get older though.

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.
