Harvard – the most famous university in the world, its $33 billion endowment the largest in the world, its 158 Nobel Laureates the most of any academic institution, counting as alumni eight U.S. presidents and many other heads of state. Founded in 1636 to train Puritan ministers, Harvard is also the oldest university in America.
Almost every academic department at Harvard is among the top three in America.
Harvard is big, it is comprised of 13 separate schools and institutes, including undergraduate Harvard College, Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Harvard Law School, and Harvard Business School. Being so big also means undergraduate teaching is not always the top priority, and Harvard professors get relatively low marks for accessibility. Harvard does not offer undergraduate courses in business. Its School of Engineering is ranked #24.
Harvard is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, across the Charles River from Boston, the birthplace of the American Revolution. Boston and its suburbs are home to over 100 colleges and universities, several world-class art museums, the renowned Boston Symphony Orchestra, and many other cultural activities.
Harvard Yard is the center of campus, a 22-acre urban park surrounded by many of Harvard's iconic red-brick Federalist and neo-Georgian buildings. Freshmen all live in dormitories, and after first year, all undergraduates live in one of twelve "residential colleges" with each having their own dining facilities and tutoring staff. Also called "houses," they are a focal point for social life. Harvard does not have fraternities or sororities, but instead "social clubs," where members can eat and drink. About a dozen social clubs are co-ed and offer open membership, another nine are all-male and very exclusive.
Harvard students tend to be exceptionally ambitious and very competitive. They work extremely hard and tend to be deeply involved with one or more of the schools' 500+ student organizations. But they thrive on what one student calls the Harvard experience: "an amazingly irresistible hell." Some students fit the stereotype of Ivy League "preppy" from wealthy families, but more and more Harvard students come from middle-class and lower-class backgrounds.
Harvard students also are politically active and generally very, very liberal. Sports are very important, the Harvard "Crimson" compete in 42 varsity sports. One of the most hallowed traditions is the annual football game against the Yale "Bulldogs," a rivalry that dates back to 1875 During the game, students sing their fight song "Ten Thousand Men of Harvard," ten thousand men who want victory over Yale.
Harvard is synonymous with academic excellence and prestige. And a "crimson degree" is an impressive credential which opens the doors to an incredible range of opportunities. If you want an extraordinary education and are up for four years of high intensity and stress, Harvard is an excellent choice. But competition for admission is fierce, Harvard offers admission to only one out of 20 applicants, so be sure to apply elsewhere as well.
