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.
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.

Injackson - I'm happy to hear you are sticking with it. You'll make it next fall!
I'm a bachelors degree candidate, and when I finish this term I will be halfway there, I'm taking about four courses a term, mostly on campus. I'm always looking for folks who can meet during the day or before class to study, have coffee, share war stories.
When I get aeound to declaring a field and minor(s) I plan on Visual Arts, minoring in biology (particularly related to aquatic ecosystems) and government. I'm hoping to finish able to research, communicate, and advocate for water-related issues. Ultimately, I would like to earn a masters or PhD in landscape architecture or design studies -- so that I can not only advocate for, but also design solutions. I'm particularly interested in the boundaries at the edges of the built and natrual environments.
I will be leading a group of middle school students this year in a new Girls Who Code club. Anyone looking for a volunteer opportunity in the STEM area should check itnto this organization. If you live in the west of Boston area, I'm looking for a buddy to help team teach. We have thirty motivated girls, and not enough "me" to go around.
i'm also ALB candidate and was just admitted this semester. like bejackson, i'm concentrating in science and looking into the computer science field with minors in quantitative analysis and math. at this point, however, i'm not too sure so i'm just enjoying the ride as a first-year.
i think my main priority would to get involved in career fairs and the academic opportunities like special student status and faculty aide options, among others.
looking forward to riding this wave with you all!
