Over 370 years in the making... 


September 14. 

Taking Over Harvard Square: 1-7pm
Harvard Grad Student After Party: 7pm- 12 midnight

The Harvard Graduate Council, in collaboration with the Harvard Square Business Association and the city of Cambridge, is bringing together the Harvard and the local Cambridge/Boston communities to welcome incoming students and welcome back returning students for a full day starting in Harvard Square (1-7pm) and ending at Queen’s Head Pub (7pm-midnight) with live jazz band and Harvard-wide connections. 

We are shutting down streets in Harvard Square with multiple stages and festivities throughout the day – including a Harvard team-based digital scavenger hunt throughout Harvard Square. We will have student performances, multiple bands coming to play, the Harvard marching band, and more! This is going to be really big. We are working with the city, the Harvard Square Business Association, and various Harvard depts. Local businesses will be out on the streets and we are planning to have the mayor and other dignitaries attend.

Ideally grad students at every Harvard school will have the opportunity to get oriented with their home school in the first two weeks of the semester — this event will bring together all Harvard schools and introduce students to the greater Harvard community. Come out and get connected Harvard-wide. 

* Ticket Details

Registration for the Harvard Square portion of the day (including all performances and digital scavenger hunt) is FREE. 

Tickets for the Harvard Grad Student After Party are $15. Space is limited and tickets will likely sell out. 
After Party tickets are for Harvard graduate students only. Registration check-in at Queen's Head is between 7-8pm. After 8pm, guests are not guaranteed entry. Ticket includes a complimentary drink ticket for an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage, annual membership with the Harvard Graduate Council One Harvard a-list rewards card, and an awesome Harvard t-shirt. The After Party includes live performances, networking, and a night of fun together with other students across Harvard.
