As Harvard Summer School registration begins this weekend, 4,753 students will have the opportunity to experience everything from economics and chemistry classes to concerts, talent shows and trips.
With a new activities director, Sitso W. Bediako '99, the summer promises to be packed with new and novel attractions.
One prominent addition is the "Twist and Shout Performers Showcase" concert series featuring up-and-coming bands.
Lisa Kirchner, daughter of Walter Bigelow Rosen Professor of Music Emeritus Leon Kirchner, will be performing in the series debut on July 1.
Other activities over the summer include trips to Maine, Newport R.I., and Cape Cod.
The school will offer about 200 courses. The most popular offerings this year are in computer science, economics and chemistry.
Computer science courses have had the greatest growth in enrollment, with "Elements of Computer Science Using Java" leapfrogging past "Organic Chemistry" to become the most-demanded course, with 179 students signed up as of yesterday.
Several new courses are being offered this year, including "Dante's Divine Comedy and Its World," taught by Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures and Professor of Comparative Literature Lino Pertile. A European and Russian theater course taught by Anatoly Smeliansky, a lecturer at the Institute for Advanced Theatre Training, is also being offered for the first time.
