As part of its 375th celebrations, the University has created a new photo book, "Explore Harvard: The Yard and Beyond." This collection of photographs brings to life the myriad intellectual exchanges that make Harvard one of the world s leading institutions of higher education.
Presenting contemporary images never before published as well as archival prints, this large-format portrait of the University captures an early spirit of exploration that continues to thrive around the Yard, in the historic lecture halls, in cutting-edge science facilities, and in research outposts around the world. From move-in day to Commencement, seasonal shifts across the iconic New England landscape form a contemplative backdrop to learning and growth for each new class that enters here.
For alumni who remember life in the houses along the Charles, or thrilled to the achievements of athletes and artists, "Explore Harvard" will not disappoint. Prospective students who have seen the University only from a distance will get an inside view of one of the most beautiful campuses in the world, while those intimately familiar with the school will discover a side of Harvard they never knew.
