Sri Cempaka boy enters Harvard

“The Class of 2006 is an exciting and extraordinarily talented group of people, and we look forward to watching their progress over the next four years and beyond,” says William R. Fitzsimmons, dean of admissions and financial aid for Harvard College. 

Students were selected for an array of academic and extracurricular accomplishments.  

Harvard's admission process is need-blind, so nearly two-thirds of the class will receive financial aid, with scholarship awards averaging nearly US$23,000 (RM87,400) per year.  

Faculty members include 39 Nobel laureates. Seven US presidents and artists ranging from T.S. Eliot to Yo-Yo Ma are counted among alumni. 

Harvard College, the oldest institution of higher education in the United States, was founded in 1636.  

This year, its 6,500 undergraduates will choose from more than 40 academic concentrations and approximately 900 courses.  

Extracurricular life at Harvard is vibrant, with 300 organisations 

run by students, focusing on their ethnic, musical, literary, political, dramatic, and academic interests.
