Students speak to professionals working in the federal, state, and local government on Friday in the HGSE Gutman Conference Center. The Harvard Government Careers Student/Employer Meet-Up thinking about the shutdown was open to all students who are considering government jobs, internships, or fellowships.
Students gathered in the Graduate School of Education’s Gutman Conference Center on Friday for a fair on careers in federal, state, and local government—an event which would have been scaled down had the government shutdown not ended Thursday.
An OCS informational session on careers in government scheduled for next Friday has not been altered in light of the shutdown, though the attendance of some governmental office representatives at the meet-up may be affected.
It's Tuesday, which means it's not Monday but it's also not Friday yet. Hang in there—it's almost hump day! Here's what going on at Harvard today.
Ah, Monday—we meet again. Let's all roll out of bed and get this over with. To make the beginning of the week a little less painful, here's a summary of what's happening on campus today.
It’s the first weekend of October after a week that felt like anything but fall. Make the most of what is mostly still nice weather with a picnic—or at least by studying for those midterms outdoors.
The government may be shut down, but Harvard’s still chugging along (for now, at least). If you're feeling disgusted by American democracy today, you're not alone (see: "Dollarocracy"). If you're looking to be inspired by hearing about people who actually made change, head to a screening of "Left on Pearl," a documentary on the historic events of International Women's Day 1971 at Harvard. And if you're looking to forget about politics altogether, munch on a farmer's market apple in the sun.
The story of droves of students entering college expecting to be pre-med, but later switching tracks—whether because of the rigor or the draw of other disciplines—is a familiar one. However, at Harvard unique factors play into this whittling down of aspiring doctors.
Students, faculty, alumni, and donors gathered in the Faculty Room of University Hall on Thursday afternoon to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Weissman International Internship Program.
Feeling stressed about classes already, or just mad that midterms are already happening three weeks into the semester? Zen your life this Tuesday with some sitting meditation or fresh produce (or, you know, a term-billed Wellness Center massage…)
