Global Networking Night

Looking to build your Harvard network? The Harvard Alumni Association’s annual Global Networking Night (GNN) is a great way to do that!

This year, GNN was held on Thursday, January 21, 2021, as a virtual event series, allowing alumni to connect with each other through location-based events in their area and through professional interest-based events. 

Welcome to Your City welcome sign

Welcome to Your City

Thank you to all who joined us in welcoming the Class of 2020 this fall! Harvard graduates between the years of 2011 and 2020 came together on October 14, 2020, for a series of events held virtually within 24 cities worldwide.

Hosted by local Harvard Clubs, participating Shared Interest Groups, and local College volunteers, this year’s Welcome to Your City was a fun, informal way for recent graduates to connect with alumni in their areas. 

View the City Directory to see which cities participated this year! You can also check out photos from past events at #HarvardNetwork. Stay tuned for 2021 dates!

Commencement Activities

Commencement

We will gather as a community online on Thursday, May 27, to award degrees and celebrate the achievements of our graduates. The principal address will be delivered by Ruth Simmons. President Simmons—now at Prairie View A&M University after serving as president at both Smith College and Brown University—is among America’s foremost advocates for higher education.

The Game

Each year, Harvard and Yale vie for bragging rights in a football rivalry dating back to 1875. As the second-oldest rivalry in college football, the Harvard-Yale game is more than just a football game. It’s The Game.
