What can FIPpers talk to you about?

Acting, cooking, crime shows, the office, friends (the series), the beach, economics, Tanzania, having fun!

Why should a freshman choose FIP?

It's an extraordinary experience! You meet other international students with whom you get to explore Harvard with in a low stress environment and these people might actually end up being your classmates, best friends or blocking mates!


Evelyn is an always smiling Tanzanian girl who has lived in the beautiful Dar es Salaam city all her life. She is a rising sophomore who will be living in the amazing Eliot house.
