Hi. My name is Kelly Griffin on my second year M s N b A student here at Harvard Business School. In this video, I want to take you around on campus and show you some of my favorite spots. The first location that I want to show you a Schwartz common. In this video, you can see a couple of different buildings. This is where all of your classes during your RC our first year curriculum at Harvard Business School will be held next building on your right in Spangler Hall, which has several different areas that are important for campus life. The highlights in Spangler Hall include the lounge areas that I'm painting through Now. You might notice in one of these areas that there's a cafe where you can get a variety of different coffees and pastries. In addition to this little location, there are a couple different restaurants in the building that allow you to get a variety of different foods in the upper and bottom floors. There's independent study rooms that are great for interviews or teamwork, or if you just need a quiet place to work by yourself. There's also a post office in a campus store on the bottom level. On the top level, there's a variety of different offices that hold people from our student affairs office that are there to help you with anything that you might need. Now we're back outside to show you a bit more of shorts. Common as you can see, there's a nice outdoor area as well as the shorts pavilion that are great for students to gather during the nice weather in this area. There's also Klarman Hall, which is the auditorium where, in non phobic times you'll see large congregations students coming together for a variety of different lectures, guest speakers or classes. The highlight is shad, which is our athletic facility here on campus. Tennis courts outside swimming pool, indoor track in a variety of different rooms that allow for classes to be held next area of campus. I'd like to show you includes a rock center and the class of 1959 chapel, the Arthur Rock Center for Entrepreneurship. It's a great resource for those students on campus that are interested in pursuing their own ventures. Some of these resource is include entrepreneurs and residents, which conserve as mentors or guides for a variety of different questions. They also have fellowships for students be able to pursue their own ventures over the summer. Next is the class of 1959 chapel, which is one of my favorite places on campus, and probably where I took the most amount of footage. One of the interesting parts of this location is the statue outside of it. It has a ball that moves with the location of the sun throughout the day, so you could always kind of tell what time it is. It's just an interesting thing to look at as you're walking by on the inside, you can see that there is a simple chapel for those that are interested in attending services. Then my favorite part is a koi pond that's within the glass enclosure of this building. The next area of campus that I like to focus on is the Harvard Innovation Lab in the Harvard Life Lab. The major highlight of relatively locations is that there are office areas in the building for startups, be able to get their footing and get Resource is from Harvard. This area is also interesting because the new engineering building is being built across the street. I'm very excited to see what future classes they're able to do when they're so close to the engineering school. This area of campus is New York footbridge, which will allow you to cross the highway and then cross the river over into Harvard Square. I also wanted to point out that this road that is right next to the river on the Harvard Square side is closed during the nicer parts of the year on weekends to allow for pedestrian traffic without having to worry about cars. The last part of campus I want to show you is the back of Alder Tall and Baker lawn. You might remember Aldridge Hall from when I showed you Schwartz common at the beginning of the video. This is a back area, which I just think is very beautiful. It's attached to Hawes Hall, but then there's also this open area where students are able to sit and there's an interesting piece of art in the middle. I didn't highlight them in this video, but throughout campus you'll find a variety of different art pieces in different areas of the lawn. I didn't get to go inside Baker Library for this video, but usually there's a variety of different exhibits on display, and there's also a large area for students to be able to study and quiet. As you can see, Baker Lawn is a huge, expensive area between Baker Library and the river. This'll isn't a location, but I just wanted to highlight that There's a variety of different small animals on campus, from squirrels to rabbits that you'll be able to see whenever you're walking around. If you're thinking about applying to Harvard Business School, I wish you the best of luck.
