Harvard is a name that carries with it a long list of associations and preconceptions, it is Harvard after all. Get an insight into what the real Harvard is like from a student who has seen the school from multiple departments, worked in a variety of offices across the university, and has personal relationships with a wide net of administrators and faculty.
My name is Ben, I'm a sophomore at Harvard College (the undergraduate school of Harvard University) living in Leverett House concentrating in Sociology. On campus, I am involved in student government, the Institute of Politics, the Alumni Association, teaching in Boston, and community service. I've learned a lot about the way Harvard works in my time here, and I would love to share with you an authentic perspective on this sometimes intimidating and often misunderstood university that I've come to happily call my home. I am knowledgeable on a host of activities and academic departments through my network and work across the school, even those I am not personally involved with, so don't worry about not getting the full picture if our interests don't line up exactly.
