Visit Harvard-America's Oldest University
While your grades might not get you admitted, anyone can take a walk in Harvard Yard. You can't leave Cambridge without having a look-see at the oldest institution of higher learning in the country. The campus shouts quintessential New England, and when you're not in the classroom, students here look just the same as they do at other colleges. There's lots of green space, impressive architecture, and plenty of places to put your feet up from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding Harvard Square. You can download an audio tour from their web site. Make sure not to miss the Memorial Hall for its beautiful angles and just don't leave saying 'paack ya ca in Havaid yaad'!
