Beyond the Classroom
There is fairly universal agreement that much of the value of a Harvard education lies in things learned outside the classroom and in the relationships established with others in the community, especially with fellow students.
Extracurricular opportunities at Harvard are virtually limitless with more than 400 official student organizations including performing and visual arts groups, 42 varsity athletic teams, student government, public service organizations, more than 50 ethnic and cultural groups, publications, and media projects. In addition, students take advantage of living in Harvard Square, frequenting its movie theaters, bookstores, ice cream shops, cafes, and the many specialty shops.
Harvard undergraduates benefit directly from the University's eminence as a national and international crossroads for intellectual, political, cultural, and artistic exchange. Throughout the academic year, guests and visiting faculty include prominent political figures, authors, scientists, artists, and others whose expertise, experience, or perspective is of current interest to the entire University community. Special lectures, seminars, and performances are open to all, and these opportunities are among the most valued and appreciated aspects of the Harvard experience.
