Upcoming Harvard Events
Annual Dinner - June 7
What is thinner than an atom, stronger than steel, harder than a diamond and one of the most conductive materials on earth? It's a substance called graphene and according to scientists, it's going to change the world. The best part is that you can make it at home in just a few minutes (video). The development of graphene as an practical industrial product is just one of the fascinating challenges the scientists and students are taking on at the new Harvard Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS). Join us for the Annual Dinner at Choate where we will hear SEAS Dean, Frank Doyle, tell us how Harvard is turning the focus of the engineering world towards Cambridge. This is definitely not about your grandfather's science class. Reserve your tickets here...

We always need interviewers! Can you help?
Interviews for the Class of 2020 are completed, but that doesn't mean we don't want to hear from you. If you want to help us interview the amazing applicants to Harvard from southern Connecticut, don't wait until the fall...contact us today? Applications to Harvard are increasing every year, which is great news. If this trend continues, however, we won't have enough interviewers to meet all of these outstanding young people; a time-honored tradition for our club. If you can remember how pivotal your interview was to your Harvard experience, you will want to continue to "pay it forward" and give that same experience to the present-day version of yourself.
Don't wait. The Class of 2021 will be knocking on Harvard's door soon. Please visit our Interviewer page to learn more and get involved. Thank you for your much needed help!
