Congratulations, Class of 2016!

You did it! Last week, Harvard held its 365th Commencement, awarding a total of 1,661 Bachelor's degrees. With Class Day speaker Rashida Jones '97 (most known for her role as Anne Perkins in Parks and Recreation) and Commencement Day speaker Steven Spielberg, the Yard was abuzz with thousands of family, friends and loved ones congregating to celebrate the amazing achievements and accolades of the Class of 2016! Congrats, grads!

Of course, no Harvard commencement is complete without The Harvard Shop's pop up shop! For Class Day and Commencement day each year, our 20-something team of managers sets up a temporary store inside Harvard Yard so that our Moms, Dads, and grads can deck out in crimson. Our tent was fun, active, filled with music, and was a change to the often melancholy and contemplative mood that comes with graduation ceremonies.

Even the Dean of Harvard College, Rakesh Khurana, purchased an item from our tent!
Who says you can't have a little fun while working?
