Incoming first-year Harvard student Ezra Feder is working at the Artists for Humanity (AFH) in South Boston this summer, a program that challenges young people to effect social change through the creative process. His work there is part of Harvard’s new Service Starts with Summer Program (3SP) for incoming first-year students. The program calls for participants to commit to giving at least 100 hours to a community project in or near their hometowns during the summer before starting school.⠀ ⠀ Feder, a native of Sharon, MA, organized and promoted AFH's Summer Exhibition. He found event sponsors, solicited donations for refreshments, and exercised community outreach across the city to spread the word about the exhibition, which is an opportunity for AFH’s artists to display and sell their work to gallery visitors.⠀ ⠀ “There is a term in Hebrew, tikkun olam, which means to ‘repair the world,’ not just to help yourself but to help others,” said Feder. “That’s always been a significant value in my life, and it’s a natural extension of that value to participate in 3SP and to continue doing community service at Harvard.”⠀ ⠀ Photo: @Rosie_Lincoln/Harvard Staff Photographer

Miso Kwak and Nikita Andersson, who bonded over their desire to amplify the voices of students with disabilities, are co-chairs of the International Higher Education and Disabilities organization at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. ⠀ ⠀ Kwak, who is blind, pursued a master’s in Education Policy and Management, and Andersson, who is dyslexic, did a master’s in Technology, Innovation and Education. Together, the two women started "Disability Disclosed," a student publication that aims to include disability in the conversation on campus diversity and inclusion. ⠀ ⠀ "I think somebody has to come in and say, 'Look, we are here,'" said Kwak about students with disabilities.⠀ ⠀ Photo: @Rosie_Lincoln/Harvard Staff Photographer

This summer, Julia Shea ’20 is studying the social dynamics of Harvard roommates. She is using data analysis and visualization methods to map survey results from undergraduates about their feelings of closeness with one another.⠀ ⠀ “I like lab research because it’s generative,” said Shea. “It’s not just about reading things that have already been written, but looking into the future and talking about what questions we can answer.”⠀ ⠀ Photo: Jon Chase/Harvard Staff Photographer

This summer, Ciara Hervás '21 is working on the Long 19th Amendment project at the Radcliffe Institute, which commemorates the centennial of the passage of the amendment to the U.S. Constitution that granted the right to vote to some women. ⠀ ⠀ Hervás is collecting historical data on black women’s suffrage organizations that will eventually be part of a digital data hub called the Suffrage Portal. “One of the goals of the project is to think about the 19th Amendment in a more complex and intersectional way, and not just as a simple victory story,” said Hervás.⠀ ⠀ Photo: @rosie_lincoln/Harvard Staff Photographer

This summer, Jonathan Yuan ’22 is working with Professor Suzanne Preston Blier on Be the Change! Harvard Square and its Setting, a project that develops research-backed recommendations for future development that maintains the neighborhood’s unique community atmosphere.⠀ ⠀ “I want to do something that has an impact in a community, and this kind of work that is central to a place and people has strengthened that wish for me, to change a place for the better,” he said.⠀ ⠀ Photo: Kris Snibbe/Harvard Staff Photographer

For her undergraduate summer research fellowship, Elizabeth Propst '22 is working on "Poetry in America" with Professor Elisa New. ⠀ ⠀ “I know firsthand how important it is to have high-quality digital resources for education,” said Propst. This summer she is helping retool an online poetry course, originally taught to college students, into a new pilot program aimed at students in Title I high schools, where a high percentage of students come from low-income families. ⠀ ⠀ Photo: Stephanie Mitchell/Harvard Staff Photographer

Happy birthday J.K. Rowling, Harvard’s 2008 Commencement speaker! ⠀ ⠀ In her speech that day, she said:⠀ ⠀ "Given a Time Turner, I would tell my 21-year-old self that personal happiness lies in knowing that life is not a check-list of acquisition or achievement. Your qualifications, your CV, are not your life, though you will meet many people of my age and older who confuse the two. Life is difficult, and complicated, and beyond anyone’s total control, and the humility to know that will enable you to survive its vicissitudes."⠀ ⠀ Photo by Justin Ide

While digging at the archaeology field school in San José de Moro, Peru, Harvard College student Caroline Coolidge unearthed a figurine approximately 1,000 years old. ⠀ ⠀ As she brushed the dried soil from what she thought was a rock, she slowly uncovered a fully intact figurine, likely from the transitional period between the Moche and Lambayeque cultures. “I thought, ‘This can’t be this intact piece of pottery.’ But I just kept brushing away. I was honestly speechless when I saw what it was,” she says. ⠀ ⠀ During the five-week program participants visit Peruvian archaeological sites and museums and learn the fundamentals of archaeological documentation and analysis. They also learn how to excavate, uncovering funerary relics and other items that point to how groups such as the Moche celebrated life and death, and how and why they flourished or failed.⠀ ⠀ “I knew it was going to be amazing,” she said. “But I didn’t realize it was going to be this amazing.”⠀ ⠀ Photo courtesy of Caroline Coolidge

The Harvard Summer Pops Band is open to all brass, woodwind, and percussion musicians regardless of age or experience. ⠀ ⠀ “The people are from all different walks of life,” said flutist Helen Bryant. “You look around and the age span is from little kids all the way up to much older people, but everyone is really committed to it.”⠀ ⠀ After a handful of summer rehearsals, the band holds two concerts, one at Harvard Yard and the other at the Memorial Hatch Shell in Boston. Both concerts are free and open to the public.⠀ ⠀ Photo: @Rosie_Lincoln/Harvard Staff Photographer

Two new rain gardens on campus - in the Leverett House and Mather House courtyards - will absorb storm water overflow and help alleviate puddling on campus. ⠀ ⠀ The recessed gardens were conceived of by a group of Harvard College students as part of the Green Think Initiative. The rain gardens use a mix of soil, sand, compost, and mulch to retain water, which is then released slowly into a drain or used to feed the plants. ⠀ ⠀ Photo: @rosie_lincoln/Harvard Staff Photographer

The Pets as Therapy program brings dogs to the Cambridge Rehabilitation and Nursing Center to interact with residents. Volunteers, with dogs lent by members of the Harvard community, visit the center twice each week.⠀ ⠀ Organizers say that the program, which is designed to offer companionship and therapeutic benefits, actually helps all involved: the residents, the student volunteers, and even the dogs, who forge relationships with residents and other animals.⠀ ⠀ Photos: Jon Chase/Harvard Staff Photographer

Aurora Straus is a professional race car driver, and also a Harvard student. ⠀ ⠀ Familiar with the racing world since childhood, Straus says she felt an instant connection with the road. She has been racing professionally for 3 years. ⠀ ⠀ Competing in 10 to 15 races a year made her first-year at Harvard a delicate balance that she has sometimes struggled to maintain.⠀ ⠀ “It’s hard to compartmentalize when both commitments are full-time,” she said. “But with Harvard, it’s low stakes in a really beautiful way. If I turn something in late or get a B instead of an A, that won’t affect me for the rest of my life.”⠀ ⠀ See more of Aurora in our Instagram story!
