It seems like yesterday we were welcoming you back from your long winter break. I trust the year has also sped by for you, and you are able to look back with pride at accomplishments and with awe at discoveries of one sort or another. We have really enjoyed working with you and continuously marvel at your talents and goodwill. We are hearing a lot now about (and from) the Class of 2021, many of whom were here for Visitas. They sound (and are) pretty special, but they will have to really step up to match the impact you have made on the College.
You may be familiar with Mark Twain's remark: "When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how much he'd learned in seven years." A bit of hyperbole, but students often report an evolving relationship with their parents and heightened regard given time away from one another. Whatever your experience, I trust you will wear your enhanced knowledge and skills lightly, and continue to appreciate the varieties of intelligence and day-to-day involvements that make communities - of all sizes and shapes - work.
We wish you the best as you depart from the Yard, and thank you for the terrific year that we have had together.

I'm sick of everyone just saying they're "fine." I feel anxious and down but don't know how to open up about it. Some parts of my life and identity just don't fit in here at Harvard. I wish I took better care of myself.
Does any of this sound like you? Drop in, chat, drink some cocoa, and leave with some practical tools taken from recent research within the fields of mental health and wellness. You don't have to come every week, and there are no sign-ups. Questions? Email the program moderator, Proctor Lispeth...
