Senior Talks 2016

Celebrating the Class of 2016!

April 13, 2016

Come out and support housemates, classmates, blockmates, and friends for this special opportunity to celebrate life at Harvard College. Starting on Monday, April 18th at 8:45 a.m., one graduating senior from each residential house will speak at Morning Prayers, one of Harvard's longest-running traditions. Each senior will speak for 5 minutes within the 15 minute ecumenical service that dates back to the earliest days of Harvard College. Five minutes may not seem like a lot of time, but it's just enough for these brave seniors to describe a friendship, an idea, a professor, or an experience that has shaped their Harvard lives.
