15 Most Interesting Seniors
Every winter, FM goes through the process of drawing 15 exceptional individuals from the senior class. We are often asked if we’re looking for anything specific in this annual tradition—if, in particular, there is a rubric for recognizing one undergraduate over another. If you really want to know, well, too bad. But we will say this: of course, we make sure to ask the entire campus for their input, and we pick every year’s seniors based on their individual accomplishments and personalities, as you’ll see from their impressive profiles. But we also keep in mind that Harvard as a whole contains multitudes, and we’ve done our best to represent the best that the Class of 2011 has to offer in many walks of life. Among this year’s group, you’ll find budding politicians and activists, artists and scientists. There are those who have pushed the limits of human knowledge in classrooms and labs, while others have already made their names in the professional world. You’ll probably recognize some of the names here from previous pages of The Crimson and publications around the world, and plenty have done great things to little fanfare so far. But all of them have made their mark somehow, and we hope they continue to do so after they leave the confines of Harvard.
