LDOC, Harvard Edition

This morning I attended our final AIE meeting of the year, and what will likely be my last class ever at Harvard University. Our final activity was a special treat from our program director.

I can’t say what the activity was (he wants us to keep it a surprise for next year’s cohort), but it effectively summed up what my year at HGSE has been like – enjoyable, creative, unconventional, and experienced with an incredibly diverse and invaluable community. I couldn’t be happier to have spent this year with the people I spent it with.

Now that my time at HGSE has nearly come to a bittersweet close, I’m honored to pass my torch on to the incoming class of 2014, both in the AIE program and elsewhere. May you find the warmth and intellectual stimulation here that I did.

To steal a tiny morsel from Walt Whitman (and one of my classmates), I leave you with this:

“The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?
                                       Answer.
That you are here—that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”
– Walt Whitman, “O Me! O Life!,” from Leaves of Grass

-Matt
