GET INVOLVED

Want to get involved in the reunion fun before we meet in the 02138?

Follow our class on Instagram -- and send your class photos to @harvard07 so we can share them.

Add songs from 2003-2007 to our class Spotify playlist, to be played during reunion weekend (just follow the playlist to edit!).

Take our class survey by Wednesday, May 24th and let us know what you're into these days. Results are anonymous but will be aggregated and shared at every reunion - it should be fun to track our class trends over time.
