Favorite place in Harvard Square?
What can FIPers talk to you about?
Pretty much anything! Changing concentrations; combining CS with other areas; getting involved with teaching at Harvard; managing your mental health; south-asian politics; HUDS food survival strategies etc.
Why should a first-year choose FIP?
FIP is an incredible community, and offers a meaningful, welcoming exposure to life at Harvard. It's a great way to meet people from similarly diverse backgrounds, and learn to navigate all the anxieties, social and cultural changes, and inevitable ups-and-downs that accompany leaving home and transitioning to an exciting--albeit entirely new--environment. The FIP community is extraordinarily kind, understanding, and helpful, and you will find a place in it.
Shrey is a rising junior at Eliot House. Born and brought up in the humid subtropical climate of New Delhi, India, Shrey now spends his time (primarily) cursing the temperamental turmoil of New England weather, and (occasionally) studying Computer Science and Math. Apart from serving as a Teaching Fellow for multiple CS courses, he writes for the Editorial Board of the Harvard Crimson, and spearheads the Harvard US-India Initiative's efforts to foster political dialogue on campus and beyond. In his free time, Shrey can be found playing badminton, watching tennis, hunting for Indian food, or admiring the effortless genius of Calvin and Hobbes.
