What You Can Expect
My daughter, husband and myself had a fabulous time on the Harvard tour. The tour guide was marvelous. Her account of the historical information was very memorable. In fact, it was so fascinating I'm retelling the information as often as possible in North Carolina. I always knew that Harvard was a special institution, but after the tour I hold it in a higher regard understanding the concept that they hold for investing in the whole student while expanding the individual on an academic journey to improve human life. They invest in great minds to continue to add wealth to our main stream society all over the world. One of my new top 10 dreams to accomplish is to enter the Library on campus with over 3 million books. I cannot imagine what it would be like to stand in the center of such a wealth of knowledge. To look at the investment of knowledge Harvard has sown into the minds of students over the years. The stack area equivalent to 52 miles would be awesome to consume by deep inhalation and visualization. Such preserved knowledge is unimaginable, especially in a time like today when they discard books. I found it a privilege to tour the grounds of Harvard and learn what makes it such a profound institution. I would recommend this tour to anyone in the area of Harvard. If possible take the tour with Liza, she was an awesome tour guide. She kept the information alive and interesting as Harvard!!
A must do for all passing through Boston without any idea of Harvard's beginnings. Highly entertaining. Current students who run the tour gives are well spoken and engaging.
Museum has impressive collection - LOVE the glass flowers and marine creatures.
