Welcome from the HAA President
Greetings from Carl F. Muller AB '73, MBA '76, JD '76
Welcome to the Harvard Alumni Association. I offer a special welcome to the graduates from the Class of 2012 and students entering for their first year. Membership is free and embraces all graduate schools as well as the College. Our resources are available from the day that you register for class and continue for a lifetime.
Each of us has a unique Harvard experience and yet we all have the same one. Whether we have a memory of dining hall conversations in an undergraduate House, making rounds at Massachusetts General Hospital, polishing a Ph.D. dissertation in Widener Library, or simply enjoying spring when it comes to Cambridge at last, we share a foundational Harvard experience that unites us all. Certainly, not every day was wonderful. Even so, and perhaps because of the challenges that we faced here, Harvard has helped shape us for the better.
It is the aim of the Harvard Alumni Association to see that your Harvard experience does not end at graduation. If you continue to be engaged with Harvard, you will find that your life will be vastly enriched. New horizons will appear and new friendships will form to match those that were a part of your life when you were at Harvard. You will feel the zest and excitement of your student days again.
Here are only a few of the countless ways that the Harvard Alumni Association can help you stay connected:
- Almost 200 Harvard Clubs around the world
- 40 Shared Interest Groups
- April Month of Public Service
- Global Networking Night
- Class reunions
- Harvard/Yale tailgate
- Travel with Harvard faculty
- EdX distance learning
Explore HAA’s website to learn more about each of these and many others. Better yet, come back to Cambridge to see firsthand.
If you should see me in the coming year, please stop to speak. It would be my pleasure to shake your hand and hear your thoughts about your own Harvard experiences—past, present and future.
With best wishes,
Carl F. Muller AB '73, MBA '76, JD '76
HAA President, 2012 - 2013
