Hi everyone! I am originally from San Diego and have been "just visiting" the East Coast ever since I stepped onto Harvard's campus as a member of the Class of 2012. I currently work as an Associate Director of Admissions at Tufts University, and I am a CARE specialty proctor. In my spare time, I love watching sitcoms, traveling to warm places, running along the Charles River, creating art for my Etsy store, and hosting friends for dinners and parties. I look forward to welcoming you to your new home!

Greetings Class of 2022! Welcome to Harvard! I am a Massachusetts native from “20 minutes outside of Boston.” In 2011, I graduated from Bates College (Lewiston, ME) where I studied economics and met my wonderful partner, Jocelyn. Since college, I earned my master’s degree in Higher Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and served as the Associate Director of Diversity and Community at Amherst College. Currently, I work in the Admissions and Financial Aid Office. My partner, Jocelyn, is pursuing her Ph.D. in English Literature at Boston College. We enjoy cooking, reading, and traveling. My partner and I are both from New England and love exploring the region’s hidden gems. We can’t wait to meet you!

Hello and welcome! A desert child at heart, at 18 I left my hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico for the rural Midwest to attend school at Grinnell College in Iowa. After spending four years running around cornfields with the cross country team and admiring the prairie sky I traveled to a small village in Nepal to work as an English teacher with preschool to seventh graders for a year. Upon returning to the States I couldn't resist the familiar pull of the Midwest and made Chicago my home. I just finished my masters degree at Harvard Divinity School last spring and work as a lead CARE proctor with OSAPR here at Harvard. I love to be outside and hope to continue exploring the beauty of the Northeast this year. I am looking forward to meeting all of you and hearing your stories!

You've made it to Harvard, congrats! I came to Harvard as a grad student pursuing studies in the history of philosophy and race in America. Following graduation I became a full-time staff member working with Professor Charles Ogletree and the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice at Harvard Law School. I'm now the Department Administrator for the Phillips Brooks House Center for Public Service and Engaged Scholarship. I'm married to incomparable Erin Northington, manager of student engagement programs at the Harvard Art Museums, and we have a large American bulldog named Eggo. In my spare time I enjoy researching the early HIV/AIDS epidemic, watching films from 80s, making smoothies, sharing memes, and photography. Welcome to Harvard, and Erin, Eggo, and I look forward to meeting you!

Hi everyone! I have been around Harvard for nearly a decade in different student capacities. I was born in India but consider Chicago to be my adopted hometown. I am currently in a dual-degree program at Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Divinity School. My professional background is in social impact consulting and strategy development for public and private organizations. I am an avid Crossfitter and enjoy rowing, playing scrabble, and rooting for the New England Patriots. Looking forward to meeting y'all!

Though a born and bred New Yorker, I haven’t left Cambridge since arriving as a freshman in 2010. As an undergraduate, I studied comparative literature and history, wrote for the arts section of The Crimson, and hung out with politically-minded friends at the Institute of Politics. I’m currently a PhD candidate in the English Department, where I study African diasporic literature and culture and teach courses on American literature, among other topics. In my so-called “spare time,” I play with and/or stare at my dog Trooper, who is always available for pet therapy sessions and walks – as long as you don’t mind picking up poop in the Yard. I’m also a great resource if you’re feeling overwhelmed by the coffee options in Harvard Square.
