Harvard — Real World Hogwarts

Harvard College is one of the two colleges within the Harvard University.  It is the oldest tertiary institution in North America, and was founded today, in 1636.

The Harvard dining hall (The Annenburg Hall) looks so spectacular…and eerily like the hall at Hogwarts, from the Harry Potter movies.

One of the most interesting — and funny! — videos I’ve seen in recent years is the TED talk by Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage.

Achor studied at Harvard (on a scholarship), then taught there for eight years.  He has some interesting insights into student life at the oldest and one of the most prestigious universities in the world.
