Hi, I am doing a project for school and I'm supposed to interview someone from my top-choice college, but unfortunatley, I do not know anyone from Harvard :( Anyway, i just have a few questions, and if any current Harvard students could answer, it would be much appreciated!
What is life on campus like? How do you get around campus?
What was your main reason for choosing to go to Harvard, as opposed to any other college you were considering?
What are the classes like? How big are they?

    What is life on campus like? How do you get around campus?
    If you are a freshman, your dorms are mainly centered at the main Harvard Yard and all the classes, buildings, science center, libraries are all walking distance. However, it is not uncommon for freshmen to get a scooter or bicycle just to help speed up the travel. When you become a sophomore, you start living in houses which are farther away from the main yard so then a bicycle might be convenient but really, most students get by walking. Life on campus is like almost any other college: studying, partying, freedom. However, one perk is that you are in a very nice and safe part of the city so you can walk out with your friends and look for places to eat and shop till late night.

    What was your main reason for choosing to go to Harvard, as possed to any other colleges you were considering?
    You kidding? I plan on becoming a business major and there are no other schools that match the prestige and connections of Harvard. Simple as that. The resources, education, community, and respect associated with the school are lifetime guarantees.

    What are the classes like? How big are they?
    It really depends on what class you take. Some can be very small, others can be bigger. This statistic you can find by googling the student teacher ratio at Harvard.
