Information Session: Yes - There is a lot of interesting history to the school, considering it was the 1st university. The person giving the session was very enthusiastic and you could tell he really loved the school.
Campus Tour: Yes - The campus is beautiful and architecture of each building is amazing. The Widener Library is world renowned and if you get a chance to peak inside Annenberg (the dining hall) looks like hogwarts.
Classroom Visit: Yes - I took classes for 8 weeks. My professor was amazing and the facilities are phenomenal.

Campus Visit Notes for Harvard University
I did a pre-college program at Harvard for 8 weeks so I feel like I got a really good idea of what life at Harvard would be like. My professor was incredible, the campus is absolutely amazing and well, we are indeed talking about Harvard.
I cannot stress how amazing the surrounding area of the university is. I have done my fair share of college visits and some colleges have absolutely nothing right around the college. Harvard is the complete opposite.
Greek life- Well there really is not much of a Greek life at Harvard but there are Final Clubs (although a little debated about.... go to this website if you want to know what a final club is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_club)
