Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[Inside Harvard's] pages provide unique insight about what students value at Harvard and reflect how honored we all are to be part of this historical institution."
—Drew Gilpin Faust, President of Harvard University

"This guidebook is unique among volumes about Harvard because it was written by our students. The authors introduce visitors, prospective students and their families, and current students and faculty to the terminology and stories that are unique to our institution, and they offer a glimpse into how some of our students see and experience Harvard. As a member of the Harvard community, I appreciate that Inside Harvard portrays Harvard not as a monolith or a place frozen in time, but as an active, ever-changing, and vibrant campus."
—Rakesh Khurana, Danoff Dean of Harvard College

Meet the Author

Founded in 1948, the Crimson Key Society (CKS) was formed to provide the Harvard Athletic Association with an organization responsible for meeting incoming athletic teams and providing accommodations for their members. By 1955, campus tours had become the focus of the Society's efforts.

Today, CKS welcomes all new students at the beginning of each year with Freshman Week, organized in collaboration with the Freshman Dean's Office, and leads historical tours of the Harvard campus throughout the year. In this guidebook, CKS has aimed to provide an accurate and compelling picture of present-day Harvard through the eyes of its own students.
