Established in 1636, Harvard is the oldest institution of higher education in the United States. The University, which is based in Cambridge and Boston, Massachusetts, has an enrollment of over 20,000 degree candidates, including undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. Harvard has more than 360,000 alumni around the world.
Wintersession, the last week of Winter Recess before classes begin, is a time when students may participate in programs that encourage personal reflection, intellectual curiosity, and social interaction. We want to ensure we are providing students with an opportunity to have a deeply transformative experience during Wintersession – intellectually, socially and personally – that will compliment their Harvard College education and prepare them for a life of service and leadership. Wintersession offers students the time and space to try something different or new, that would not be possible during the fall or spring semesters.
