What can FIPpers talk to you about?

Anything politics and development economics; being confused about what to study; language studies; travelling on Harvard's dime; FIP and international life; honestly will chat about anything..!

Why should a freshman choose FIP?

Kindest and most compelling community on campus.


Michel is an Australian from Melbourne, with Lebanese heritage on both sides of his family. An avid cricketer, Mich (pronounced "Meesh" or "Mish", depending on accent and discretion) was most nervous about landing in a country which did not appreciate Shane Warne and Sachin Tendulkar. Alas, in the international community, he found a cricket community; but also so much more... Mich met all of his blockmates at FIP (leader Lerato was the first person he met at Harvard!). He studies Applied Mathematics, Government, and Arabic, and has many sprawling but undecided plans about what to do with his life. Find him at Jefe's at 3:30am, ending a box of nachoes' proverbial career -- or the Kong, or Lamont :(. Except not this year -- this year, you will find his fuzzy, unkempt beard on the other side of your computer screen!

Unprecedented times, right..?
