Check out the 'On and Around Campus' category for tips and advice. Want to join a book club with other Harvard Extension School students that read through the Harvard Classics? It's a Harvard education in and of itself.

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.

Commencement banquet etc

Has everyone bought their tickets? I am still not getting communications. That's a lost cause...

    Not yet, I haven't heard anything more about the Tuesday, May 24, 6-9 PM, Alumni Banquet. Are tickets available?

    I haven't heard anything about the banquet either. In fact, after the discussion we had about last month's commencement email, I haven't had any communications either.
  • Join us to celebrate Harvard Extension School alumni and welcome the Class of 2016 as we bring the academic year to a close!

    As has become tradition, the banquet will take place in glorious Annenberg Hall! Named in memory of Roger Annenberg, '62 and inspired by the great halls of Oxford and Cambridge Universities, this room is arguably the most impressive space at Harvard. This is an event you won't want to miss!

    Cost: $75 per person; $65 per person for 2016 graduates and their guests

    Tuesday, May 24, 2016 - 6:00pm
    Annenberg Hall
    Memorial Hall Complex
    45 Quincy Street
    Cambridge MA 02138

    I had not realized it's an alum banquet, even though it's actually in the title! Looks like there are alumni events during commencement every year. We can volunteer next year:)
  • Has anyone done the Alumni Weekend? I was considering attending.
  • JasonSCJasonSC Posts: 7
    The year I graduated I attended some of the Alumni events. The only one I'd do again was the dinner at Annenberg.
