What can FIPpers talk to you about?

Why should a freshman choose FIP?

FIP will introduce you to the most interesting people on this campus and is the gateway to one of the most beautifully diverse and exciting groups on campus that is Woodbrige International Society.


Claudio is a rising Junior hailing from Puerto Rico living in Harvard’s best house, Eliot! Fun fact about Claudio, his parents met modeling in New York and moved back to Puerto Rico where they raised Claudio and his two sisters. A lot of his extended family lives in Germany, but sadly he doesn’t speak any German. He loves to travel and will be touring South Africa for a month with his choir and then working with an NGO in Guatemala for two months before FIP. He has been involved with performance groups on campus such as Candela dance group and IDENTITIES and loves to try new things on campus. He also loves meeting new people so don’t be afraid to talk to him and is so excited to meet the 2023 FIPpers!
