FIP is about friendship and community, and even the faculty and staff collaborators know that the FIPers need to be with each other as much as possible during the program. This can be tough for parents who travel to Harvard with their kids to help them with the transition to Harvard.
While we want the new FIPers to have autonomy during FIP, we love meeting parents! If you come to Harvard, please make sure to contact Dr. Anouska Bhattacharyya, Director of FIP, as well as the undergraduate Director of International First-Year Affairs (DIFA). We want to know that you are here and to let you know about particular parents/family events that we will be planning for FIP 2019.
