I spent my freshman year at Georgetown and came to Harvard last year. I approach my Junior year with enthusiasm. Having undergone the transfer experience, I know now that a college is not the answer to your happiness. Your happiness is entirely up to you…find things that you like to do, take the time away from academics and extracurriculars to make good friends, explore the surrounding area, don't take yourself too seriously, etc. Of course Harvard has problems all schools do!), but unlike other colleges and universities these glitches are worth it. WEll worth it.

The people that I have met here are simply amazing and modest about their talents. I would be too afraid to brag here because you never know what the person next to you has accomplished…most of the individuals I have encountered must feel the same way because I've only ever heard accolades after drawing them out of a person. I am in the most wonderful social organization, the Seneca, which is a women's/social organization that aims to promote the growth, success and happiness of its members and the entire female population. Cambridge is beautiful and Boston is a blast. Is the night life breath-taking here? No. But then again, I would prefer a girl's night in, a Harvard club party, or dinner and a movie with some friends over a gigantic state school party with people I don't even know. We have tons of sports and the house system is a great way to obtain the small feel of a Middlebury or Bowdoin at a larger school. The campus has a feel to it (especially in the fall) that always strikes me as awesome.
The resources and opportunities here are plentiful and it seems that something new and exciting is always happening.
My main gripe is about the CORE program we have here, as I would rather take more classes in my concentration (translation:major), which has been amazing so far.

I could go on for days, but I'll spare you. All in all, this place is the place to be.
