Join us as Harvard celebrates the venerable history of one of the country’s great physics programs. In exciting faculty symposia, we'll assess discoveries past, present, and potential, and we'll examine the ways in which physics — the most fundamental science — has become increasingly multidisciplinary, with graduate students working in biology, chemistry, and engineering labs across Harvard.
The Centennial Medal is the highest honor awarded by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, given annually on the day before Commencement to celebrate the achievements of a select group of Harvard's most accomplished alumni. The medal was first awarded in June 1989, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of GSAS. Read about this year's medal recipients.
An Alumni Council member traces a path from Harvard to the Art Institute of Chicago — and back again. Suzanne McCullagh knew she wanted to work in museums even before coming to Harvard for a doctorate in fine arts. It wasn’t a typical path among classmates aiming for academia, but McCullagh found inspiration in faculty mentors and at the Fogg Museum to fuel her ambitions.
Headlined by Professor William Kirby’s keynote entitled, Can China Lead?, this year’s Alumni Day generated record numbers, with close to 300 alumni in attendance. It is an event that has become a beloved tradition amongst GSAS alumni, offering attendees the opportunity to reengage with the vibrant intellectual life of the Graduate School and to reconnect with friends and colleagues.
The Graduate School's annual spring Alumni Weekend has been scheduled for April 5-6, 2013, and we hope you'll plan to join us in Cambridge for the festivities. Graduate alumni of Astronomy are invited back to campus for a reunion celebration on April 5, and all alumni are encouraged to attend Alumni Day on April 6. Details and registration information will be available soon!
