Reimagining the Classic H Sweater: Max Whittington-Cooper '17

Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite pictures of Max Whittington-Cooper, a member of the Class of 2017, and a few of his friends during our photoshoot on John Weeks Bridge, one of the most iconic spots at Harvard. Could there be a better location than that bridge to feature the timeless H Sweater? (If you find one, let me know!)

Much like the other campus ambassadors that I've been able to get to know and spend time with, Max is a ball of sunshine -- with an incredibly charismatic personality and a smile that makes you want to smile back, Max has a contagious personality that makes us all want to be his friend. 







(Notice the outfit! Aren't you in love with those socks and tasseled shoes?)

What's your House: Quincy House
What are your activities on campus: President of Harvard Undergraduate Television, runner, & singer
What's one thing you wish you could do at Harvard?: Row with the rowing team for a day
What's one tradition you could start at Harvard?: A huge Homecoming concert/party!
What been you weirdest moment in the dhall?: One of my weirdest (and coolest) moments in the dhall was when a 28-year old woman randomly sat down next to me and my friend for dinner. At first, I thought she was trying to kick us out but it turned out that she was a sophomore who just so happened to be a world-renowned ballerina returning to finish up her degree...it was pretty sweet. 
What's your favorite study place at Harvard?: Stone Hall basement
Favorite party place at Harvard?: Honestly, wherever my good friends are--we always make it work! 
Why are you a campus ambassador?: I am a campus ambassador because I love meeting new people. So I'm extremely excited to meet tons of new people through our campaign events! 
What's your spirit animal?: A black panther
How many tourist photos have you photobombed?: Probably over 100
Describe yourself in 3 words: Driven, Multifaceted, Positive
How you defy the Harvard stereotype?: When most people envision the "typical Harvard student", they picture someone who loves to sit back and play Bach and Mozart; but I am a HUGE hip-hop/rap fan. I've had every track on "What a Time to be Alive" on repeat since it dropped on Sunday. #AintNoShameInIt
Why you're wearing the H sweater?: I'm wearing the H sweater, along with the rest of the team, to help show the spectrum of different faces and personalities here on Harvard's campus. 
What does inclusivity mean to you?: To me, inclusivity means opportunity, open-mindedness, and warm acceptance.

  2. This place has the most perfect environment for whatever fun activity you are looking for. If you want a low key and more intimate atmosphere, come and hang out at venues Los Angeles. If you want the party scene, weekends at this place are where it's at!

  3. Cooper's very first acting job was for a fast-food television commercial that never aired. He landed this commercial while still working toward his master's degree at Pace University.wolff of canada home
