Yesterday, the team at The Harvard Shop was up bright and early to welcome the incoming Harvard Class of 2019!
Fresh-faced and wide-eyed, freshmen filled the Harvard Yard on the official first day of move-in. Caravans of parents toting suitcases galore, fans, books, bedding, and the occasional TV came through campus, each looking tired from the moving, but with a look of immense pride in their children (I remember when I said goodbye to my parents -- letting us go from our nest is probably the most terrifying thing as a parent).
Our team welcomed the new Class of 2019 with all of our energy -- as a business run and operated by Harvard College students, we know students and what starting college feels like.
As well as providing the best Harvard apparel & accessories you can find around, our sister company, HSA Cleaners & Dorm Essentials, provided students with laundry plans (pick up, laundry, fold and delivery included? Literally, that saves so much time every week), water delivery packages, microfridge/microwave rentals, and all the other essentials to set yourself up for success at Harvard.
At the end of the day, we got a surprise visit from Harvard College Dean, Rakesh Khurana! We of course needed to get a group picture with the Instagram famous dean before we rang up his purchase!
