What can FIPers talk to you about?

Why should a first-year choose FIP?

If you're tossing up between programs, I'd highly recommend FIP over all others. Not only do you make your closest friends at FIP (I even introduce my FIP brother as my real brother), but there's no other situation in which you'll be surrounded by people who understand every high and low that you experience during your time at college due to their international background.

Leader Bio

G'day mate! (As she keeps telling us they say in her country) Nicole is a rising junior from Sydney, Australia who studies Economics and is looking to complete a language citation both Russian and German. Before coming to Harvard, Nicole solved many a technical issue through the "turn it off and on again" trick as part of her role as a Technical Specialist at Apple. At Harvard, Nicole makes it clear that she loves to listen to herself talk, and by that we mean that she is heavily involved in the Harvard College Debate Union, traveling across the Northeast every weekend to compete at tournaments. Aside from the time she spends at debate tournaments, Nicole has also served as a friendly face on campus as a Peer Advising Fellow, and helps people put the final touches on their essays (looking at you, Expos) at the Harvard College Writing Center.  When she's not immersed in her schoolwork or extra-curriculars, you can find her in the Smith Campus Center enjoying Blackbird's delicious doughnuts.
