Dear Harvard College Parents and Guardians,
Classes are underway, student activities are in full swing, and students are bringing a special energy and enthusiasm to all aspects of their College life. Spring is an exciting time at Harvard – whether your student just reached the halfway point of freshman year or is heading into the home stretch before Commencement. But for many students, this point of the academic year can be as stressful as it is exciting.
In the coming weeks, I encourage you to reach out to your student – before the chaos of Reading Period (April 27-May 3), final examinations and papers (May 4-May 13), and Commencement (May 25), to offer your own support, and remind them that there are a number of people at the College, including faculty, staff, tutors, proctors, Faculty Deans, and Yard and House Deans who stand ready to help if needed.
Thank you for everything you do to support your learners through their Harvard journey.
Danoff Dean of Harvard College
