A recount of my impressions and experiences at a training seminar back in 2013.
Harvard University, America’s oldest institution of higher educational learning, founded in 1636, contains within its campus walls an unmistakable richness of American history and New England culture. Harvard was everything I had expected it to be: regal, elegant, refined, and ominous with its brick-heavy architecture, expounding obvious historical architectural elements the college has elected to keep in place.
I had the fortune of visiting Harvard back in 2013 for a 2-day consulting training seminar with a special focus on developing management and consulting skills. As a college known worldwide to be in the top institutions of higher learning today, I was incredibly ecstatic to immerse myself in the sights and sounds of the Massachusetts historical setting.
Upon my arrival, I was met with great, grandiose brick arches and simple gardening that really brought the depth and historical richness of the campus to life. I could almost feel the people who walked that very grass 400-years prior. As a country with a history that is still fairly new, America’s Harvard is one of the oldest and proudest historical landmarks in the greater Northeast.
Today, known for producing famous alumni like President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Natalie Portman, Matt Damon, Mark Zuckerberg, John F. Kennedy, President George W. Bush, Jared Kushner, and more, I thoroughly enjoyed my immersion and experience at a well-crafted and entirely informational consulting seminar. I reflect on the skills and mindsets learned during this conference, and I apply them in a variety of settings and decision-making elements today.
For anyone considering experiencing Harvard as a sightseeing destination or a historical tour, I highly recommend the trip. It is one of the richest American cultural immersions available today.
