Foursquare Tips

  • Do not rub John Harvard's foot for luck....bad things happen to it at night.
  • Established in 1636, America's first college is also one of the world's finest. Use the garden chairs available on the Yard to take in the beautiful architecture and foliage. - Green Guide Editor
  • There is not, in fact, any parking here.
  • You cahn't pahk heah
  • When you view the statue of John Harvard in "The Yahd," note how bright one shoe is. Tour guides say that it's good luck to rub Harvard's left foot.
  • Today, most college students graduate in 4-5 years. Franklin Delano Roosevelt finished college in 3 years, but stayed until 1904 so he could serve as editor of the Harvard Crimson newspaper.

  • Try to join the Harvard tour. There is an excellent guy named Drake. We were enjoyed with his impressive style of storytelling
