  • Overlooking Charles River, it appears as a mixture of a Hellenic temple and the Capitoline Pantheon. It seems almost caretaker of the part of town over the river and far more impressive than Harward.

  • We visited here in Spring. Not crowded. The university is huge and has so many departments and buildings. This is one of the most prestigious universities in the world. We were so much thrilled to be here. We visited a couple of buildings and the great lawn area in front of the main building too. The surroundings are dreamlike and are very student friendly. There are many facilities for students to study, read, have group activities, play and much more. We took some pictures and imagined someday our kid might get into this great university. Thanks so much !!
  • Open access to the public! Able to walk around to see the classrooms. Nicely decorated inside as well. Situated just right to the lakeside so really enjoyed the view!
