Friday’s BIG Question with New Orleans students sharing their thoughts on life at Harvard was apparently another success, and I want to offer this thread as a continuation of that discussion. A few follow-up questions from one of the organizers:
1) To what degree are the characterizations of us by the New Orleans students true? (E.g., that we often leave no free time in our schedules or feel guilty when we are not doing something ‘productive.’) If so, do such qualities make us whack? =)
2) To what extent is it expected that we do not live perhaps the most normal or balanced lifestyle? Isn’t this how we were brought up? Isn’t this what got us here? Isn’t this what places like Harvard are ultimately designed around?
Whether or not you went, you can probably imagine the way the discussion went, so whether or not you went, SHARE SOME WISDOM!
