Student Life

At the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences there are a great number of ways to get involved in the community outside of academics.  There are numerous clubs, organizations, and competitions that students participate in throughout the year.  SEAS also offers funding for ‘extracurricular activities with technical content’ which includes both independent design projects and competitions.

A community of support at SEAS encourages learning outside of the classroom through experiences, programs, speaker series, special projects, and community events.  SEAS administration works with students to create the best opportunities.  This includes items such as school-wide social events, design and research fairs, the Sophomore Forum, Optional Winter Activities during J-Term, luncheons with industry representatives, ice cream socials, advising fairs, panel discussions, and others.  SEAS student councils for both undergraduate and graduate students work with the Office of Academic Programs to address student concerns and enhance the academic experience at SEAS.
