Why should a freshman choose FIP?

Because all international freshman who don't, regret it. Its great to start off your time at Harvard by meeting 150, as opposed to 1700 in one go.


Jonathan is from the UK, but was originally born in Russia - he is a mixed race student, with his mum being Russian and his dad being Ethiopian. He is a rising Sophomore who will be living in Adam's House. At Harvard, Jonathan is involved with the Men's Rugby team, Economics Association, Woodbridge Society for International Students and a few other organisations. He is planning on concentrating in Economics, though I might concentrate in Applied Math and Economics. Jonathan is a huge fan of travelling and this summer he is going to Singapore to do a work placement. His first year here at Harvard has been out of this world, so many cool experiences and stories to share - you will definitely all have a blast!
