Harvard Law School

I was given the opportunity to tour all the law buildings and the underground tunnel. The underground tunnel helps students go to every building on campus to prevent the cold overbearing weather.

Lastly, I had dinner with Harvard Alumni in the Harvard Board of Boston. Dr. Lynda Schubert said “ Give yourself the ability to go to the best school”
