Harvard, the MIT Museum, and Salem to Round Out Week One of College Prep!


discover program

Harvard University's Johnston GateWe’re halfway through first session; I can’t believe how fast it went by! It’s crazy!

On Saturday morning, we had our College Admissions class and then left for Harvard. I was sooooooo excited! I was finally going to visit Harvard, the school of my dreams for as long as I can remember. Needless to say, I was so full of jubilation, and couldn’t keep still on our way there. The campus is amazing, although there were so many people visiting or just walking to their summer courses. We just went around the Harvard Yard, which is basically where all the freshmen live, and we heard a little about the school’s history.

A cool alley we passed on the walk from Harvard to the MIT MuseumWe then visited the MIT Museum, which was really fun. It exhibited tons of inventions, from the most random and simplest ones to the most sophisticated and innovative ones! It was so interesting, and we could’ve literally spent five hours in there just learning about how every invention works.

On Sunday morning, we got to sleep a little, and we then left for Quincy Market to do a little bit of shopping. The House of the Seven Gables' garden in Salem, MAWe went to buy apparel for Monday’s Red Sox game and walked a little. We got to see where the Boston Tea Part ships were. We had a quick lunch and hopped in the car to go visit Salem!

Salem was so cute! We visited the House of the Seven Gables made famous by the author Nathaniel Hawthorne. The house is considered as one of the oldest houses in the nation, so we really got to see how people lived when they first arrived in New England. After visiting the house, we walked a little in Salem, and my friends and I went inside of all the magic and psychic reading stores, because we were so curious about witches and all. It was really cheesy but still fun. We were all exhausted by the time we got back to Boston (we all fell asleep in the car).
