Summer greetings from the Admissions Office

Hello blogosphere! I wanted to take a quick moment to introduce myself and share some exciting updates. My name is Jake Foley and I just finished my first year as an Admissions Officer here at Harvard.  I graduated from the college in 2008 and was a government concentrator with a focus on the Middle East. After living abroad for some time after graduation I am happy to be back in Massachusetts where I spent most of my life. It’s been an exciting year being back on campus, getting to know amazing young people from all corners of the globe, and traveling throughout this country spreading the word about the opportunities at the college and the comprehensive financial aid that makes it possible for every admitted student to attend, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.

You will notice that our fantastic student bloggers continue to post while they are away on their summer adventures so be sure to check back often.  Additionally, we are excited to be featuring ‘Guest Bloggers’ throughout the summer. Below you can read rising senior Janet Song’s post about the research she is doing in the department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology. We will be featuring a variety of Guest Blog posts throughout the summer and we hope you will  keep checking in to hear different voices from around the college.

We hope you enjoy the blog. Happy summer!

    Great blogs and wonder how the students find the time and patience to write all the blogs. Kudos to the college for providing such a platform…
