This forum is exclusively for Harvard University students. The sponsor for this forum is an exciting new web app, The Degree Tracker. Track and plan your Harvard Extension School ALM and ALB degrees or professional graduate certificate. Course ratings, instructor reviews, accomplishment badges, planning, tracking, and other tools to help guide students through their HES journey. TheDegreeTracker is proud to bring you this tool to use to track your degree at Harvard Extension School. If you are a student who has more courses than you can keep track of, and you would like to plan out your degree pathway carefully, then track and plan courses with the Degree Tracker to take control of your education. Including course reviews and course ratings, TheDegreeTracker has the potential to not only guide you through your degree, but to let you help other students who might be wondering about the HES courses that you've taken. The Degree Tracker is glad to provide the Harvard Extension School Student Forum (ESF) to help foster a nurturing environment. This forum for was born in 2015 to create better Harvard Extension School friendships, networking, and information to contribute to a better overall HES experience. Extension students formerly congregated at forums such as philfac and extensionstudent. This website has no affiliation with either the philfac or extensionstudent websites. It has been created and run by 100% completely different leadership. For the extension student who wants a bigger taste of what life with other Harvard Extension students is like, combining the Degree Tracker and the extension student forum can foster that sense of community that others have on campus. Another advantage of participating in an online community over the Harvard campus is that extension students can develop permanent relationships with other extension students that being on a physical campus might not necessarily allow, since online students are great at staying in touch online.

What would you like to see in a forum?

We'd be glad to hear your feedback. It's no piece of cake to graduate with your Bachelor of Liberal Arts or Master of Liberal Arts in a timely fashion, but your Bachelor's or Master's degree plan will only benefit from making use of the Degree Tracker and this exclusive forum for Harvard's marvelous students.

2016 Commencement Ticket Swap Thread

Well, it's about that time again. Need tickets, have tickets?

Comments

  • I'm hoping to invite my Brother and Sister (along with Wife and Mother). I'll need (2) additional tickets, so if anyone has them to spare, I'd be eternally grateful!

    Regards,
    Phil
  • I'm hoping to invite my both of my children. With the two tickets I can only invite my wife and one child. I could use another ticket as well.
    I am open to buy one if the price is reasonable.

    I hope you find tickets for your family, though please be aware that per the Commencement Office, "the sale of Commencement tickets is prohibited."
  • Thanks for the tip. I didn't realize this.

    Hi All. I'm also hoping to get more tickets for my family (6 people coming from overseas). If anyone have any extras and can share, I'd be eternally grateful.
    Thanks a lot.

    Hi Everyone!
    My name is Joan and I am hoping to get tickets to any of the three events for my family. Extension Alumni, in case you did not know, you can request tickets for the afternoon ceremony. All of us at HES would be eternally grateful if you payed it forward if you are not planning to be there. I know that the sale of Commencement tickets is prohibited but I am happy to provide in return gifts, help with errands, or anything you might need!
    Thank you!!!

    Does anyone still have a ticket? I really need one for this student I've been mentoring at Cambridge Community services. My two tickets are taken by family members and I really would like to have this kid there. Please let me know if you have one that I can buy.

    No buying/selling allowed! Just make your case for why you'd like a ticket.

    That's fine.
    I am looking for one ticket to give the kid I mentored so he can attend and experience Harvard commencement. He wants to get into Harvard Law someday and this event could inspire him. He is performing very well in school and has a GPA of 3.9/4.0
