About

The Harvard Extension School student blogs, sponsored by the Extension School, feature students who are currently earning undergraduate and graduate degrees here. Our bloggers aim to chronicle their student experiences honestly, so that you might learn from their challenges and triumphs. The bloggers choose their topics and write their posts independent of the school and its administration.

We hope you’re inspired by the stories these students share. If you have any ideas or suggestions about student blogs, e-mail us.

Commenting on posts

Comments enhance a post, and we welcome yours. Keep in mind that bloggers are not official spokespeople for the Extension School. They are here to share their personal experiences only. They do not provide academic advising or answer academic policy questions; such questions should be directed to the appropriate Extension School office (call Information Services at 617-495-4024 or e-mail extension@dcemail.harvard.edu).

The following are some guidelines for commenting.

What to post: We welcome thoughtful comments that tie into the theme of the post clearly and succinctly. For example, if a blogger writes about her experience taking an online class or the challenges of choosing a thesis topic, you might share your own experiences, the pros and cons.

Tone and critiques: These blogs are intended for a general audience of prospective and current students, alumni, faculty, and friends. Any comments that include offensive or inappropriate language will be removed. If you’re a student or alumna/us, we want you to post honestly about your experiences at the Extension School. Please refrain from personal attacks; we reserve the right to delete such posts.

Privacy: Please avoid posting personal information like e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and mailing addresses.

All rights reserved: Harvard Extension School reserves the right to delete all comments. The school may block access to any user who posts offensive comments repeatedly.
