A Welcome to Families

Dear Harvard families:

Welcome to the Harvard family! We know that this year marks not only a beginning for our first-year students, but also a beginning for those who love and care for them. We look forward to getting to know you and all that you bring to our community as this first year arrives.

No individual arrives at this point alone, nor do they experience Harvard alone. We are eager to work with you and have created a structure of support and resources to ensure the best for your student in the class of 2023, so please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. The deans, proctors, peer advising fellows, teachers, and advisers all stand ready to support your student whether by asking questions, exploring options, describing resources, or simply sharing their time and respect. We look forward to the First Year Move–in Day, and if you are able, hope that you will considering joining us for one or more of the family events scheduled for Tuesday, August 27, 2019.

Thank you for entrusting your student to us. We look forward to exciting times ahead for them and for you!


Lauren Brandt
Associate Dean of Students
