Welcome to the website of the Harvard Club of Southern Connecticut! We hope this site will provide a user-friendly and informative venue to tell you about the happenings of our club. The site has more photos, real-time updates and credit card processing for dues and events, with links to Facebook , Harvard Magazine and The Crimson.
This past year Harvard College had over 40,000 applications, with our area contributing 350 applications. There are 28 students matriculating from Southern Connecticut to the Class of 2022! Our wonderful alumni interviewers met with our applicants, which is one of the most important functions of our club. We encourage you all to sign up to be an alumni interviewer. It is a fun, rewarding activity in which you have the opportunity to meet interesting, enthusiastic students. Just check off the box located on our homepage.
We hosted our Annual Dinner Thursday, June 7 at Choate Rosemary Hall. We had the great pleasure of meeting many of our members of the Class of 2022 as well as the five current Harvard students who are working in community service this summer as recipients of the Club's Community Service Fellowship Grants. Finally, students and alumni were treated to an intensely interesting talk from Harvard University Archivist, Megan Sniffin-Marinoff, who schooled us on Harvard's long and fascinating history. Who knew that John Hancock, during his tenure as Harvard's treasurer, partially funded the payroll of General Washington's troops during the American Revolution with a loan from the College's coffers? We don't know if the loan was ever repaid.
We are looking forward to an active and interesting 2018-19 Club year and welcome you to join us at any time. If you have ideas for new Club events, want to get more involved in planning or participating in Club activities or want to serve Harvard as an alumni interviewer, just contact us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So enjoy our website and return to it often for updates on upcoming events!!
