Information Session: Yes - Informative, but very structured. Set as an informal discussion between two graduates, but it came off as fake and a little weird.
Campus Tour: Yes - I enjoyed the campus tour. Harvard is a school rich with history and architecture. Visting during the fall highlighted the natural beauty of the area, but it was a little small and unorganized.
Classroom Visit: Yes - Visted a few, and all of them were very nice. They ranged from extremely large to medium sized.

Campus Visit Notes for Harvard University
I was really excited to visit Harvard because it has always been a place such rich history and academia. The students surpassed my expectations and really helped to dissolve much of the "rich genius" stereotypes that surrounded the school. I wasn't thoroughly impressed by the campus, but I did really love the buildings, trees, and Harvard Yard. The tour guide said all the right things and described Harvard as a place where "students will stay up late having friendly debates over Roman history or obscure math theories for hours, and even if you don't know everything about a certain subject they will always value your opinion". This was easily one of my favorite college visits, and I will probably be going back to Harvard before I make my final college decisions.
