Health & Safety: Lots of uproar about sexual assault, but barely any sexual assault. Perfect combo.

Overall Experience: Awesome school for the most social kids—final clubs, great job opps, tons to do in Boston. Pretty boring for others.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not much variety in terms of sororities, there are few black sororities and fraternities which is sad. Harvard isn't doing anything about this even after it has been brought to their attention MANY times, and that's even worse.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the people at Harvard--I have definitely found some friends for life. If I could do it all over again, I'm not sure if I would choose Harvard again. I do hear that the eventual payout is grand compared to the minor obstacles that you face while in college, but as I'm just a second year, we'll have to see.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing system establishes a real tight knit community by first housing all freshmen together on Harvard Yard, and then moving them to upperclassman houses where you'll meet other upperclassmen and gain an extra identity.

Greek Life: Frats at Harvard are different—not snobby, overly fratty, or obnoxious. Joining a frat is somewhat pitied because much more importance is placed on joining a Harvard Final Club as an upperclassman.

Athletics: Athletics aren't all encompassing for student life—the football team doesn't rule the school—but they do provide a strong focal point for school spirit and community, especially through our rivalry with Yale.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Nothing beats the prestige of the Harvard name. The education is comparable to other top tier universities, but the Harvard name empowers undergraduates to attract some of the worlds most renowned leaders and add credibility to any initiative or conference they might start.

Health & Safety: University officers are very upfront about issues on campus and keep everyone informed. Campus crime is relatively low but when there is an issue there are many services available to students.

Greek Life: Greek life is very low at Harvard. It is not a main priority for many students but it is available for those who wish to get involved.

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.
