  • Hear about the most successful people to attend Harvard, including former presidents
  • Find out Harvard's history from 1636 through to today, from the students currently enrolled
  • Learn what happens behind closed doors in Cambridge, one of the most iconic college towns in the country

Who better to tell you about life at Harvard than the students themselves? Join your enthusiastic student tour guide and get the lowdown on this famous institution's history. Find out who studied what within the walls, see where the students hang out, and more!

Pull on your maroon sweaters and prepare to nerd out on the untold stories of Harvard University. As the oldest higher education institution in America, this prestigious Ivy League establishment first opened its doors in 1636.

Walk around the campus and hear stories from current students. Why such fierce rivalry with Yale University? Which former U.S. presidents crammed for tests in the Widener Library? This huge library is the second biggest in the U.S. and spans 10 floors.

See John Harvard's statue in Harvard Yard, an homage to the benefactor. It's shiny because so many people rub it for good luck. You'll need it, if you're trying to graduate top of the class here.

It's an education within an education. Not to be missed!
