Return to campus to provide students with advising, networking opportunities, and career exploration.
Wintersession, which takes place the week before spring semester classes begin, is a time when undergraduate students are allowed to return to campus to participate in a wide range of professional, recreational, athletic, and other enrichment programming. As part of this programming, alumni are invited back to campus to participate in a range of programs to connect with undergraduates and to provide advising, networking, and career exploration. Each year, the Harvard Alumni Association partners with various on-campus offices and alumni volunteers to offer professionally-focused programs and events that connect alumni with undergraduates returning to campus. Since its inception, this Wintersession programming has connected thousands of students with hundreds of alumni and has garnered excellent feedback from both student and alumni participants.
