I just finished my first semester at the Harvard Extension School and I cannot believe what an incredible experience it has been! The courses are everything and more in what I have always dreamed a Harvard education would be. At first I was hesitant in dedicating myself to a second masters degree program that would require me to travel from Washington D.C. each week for the two on-campus terms while juggling a full-time demanding career. However, after making it through this semester, I know made the right decision and I am thrilled to see where my newfound journey will continue to take me. Education is the key to life. If you have a curious mind and passionate goals, the Harvard Extension School is the place to be! What I appreciate most is that the Harvard Extension School allows talented people from around the world to be able to participate in this rigorous and prestigious program through semi-distance education. With my career, I would not have been able to move to Boston but this program affords me an opportunity of a lifetime to study under the world's finest scholars. For this, I am profoundly grateful.

Do you love feeling smart? When I was younger, this was not the case for me; I preferred feeling cool, pretty and popular. I hated most of my classes and most of my teachers. Now that I am old, my priorities have changed, so when I want to feel intellectual, I sign up for courses at the Harvard Extension School. There's absolutely no way I'd get into Harvard following the normal pathway, but The Extension School lets me work with Harvard professors, lounge around in Harvard lecture halls and work hard. No application required. I love being a Harvard student. I've now taken three courses here, and I have really appreciated each one, although the teachers were all very different. There's a lot of reading and writing involved, which I enjoyed, and we had some assignments that really challenged me. Two of my courses involved field trips, which were fascinating as we got to go behind the scenes and meet some incredible people. My courses were in the evening, but you can also take online courses if you do not want to go to Cambridge at night. You can get a degree if you want (undergraduate or Master's), or you can just take the courses for fun. I have studied alongside a few high school students and quite a few middle aged folks and grandparents. I really enjoy meeting my fellow students who share similar interests; we are all here because we want to be. Biotech, Museum Studies, Journalism....it's all here. There are now more than 600 courses. Worth every penny for me. The Extension School has an awesome staff and all of my questions have been answered promptly and efficiently. So now I feel smart. Thanks, Harvard. I never expected to make that statement.
