Professors and Pastries is an informal opportunity for first-year students to hear from esteemed Harvard faculty about the journeys that brought them to Harvard, what they do, what makes them tick, how they work with students, and advice they have for you. You'll have an opportunity to ask questions and then mingle with faculty guests over fruit and pastries.
