The Story Behind the Harvard Masquerade Ball
Spearheaded by the Harvard Extension Student Association (HESA), with the support of the Harvard Graduate Council (HGC), the Harvard Masquerade Ball was produced in the spirit of President Drew Faust's vision of "one university." With this idea in mind, students from HESA and HGC were inspired to develop a truly Harvard-wide event, bringing together students and alumni from all 13 Schools for one amazing night. Thus, the Harvard Masquerade Ball was born.
Harvard Masquerade Ball Committee members - represented by students from every Harvard school - hope that the Ball will be the start of a new trend at the University. Our goal is two-fold: we hope to not only produce a memorable event experience, but also provide an environment conducive for cross-school dialogue--increased collaboration and idea exchange will only benefit our already amazing Harvard community. Through University-wide events like the Masquerade Ball, we hope to foster relationship-building opportunities between our 13 Schools, making for a stronger, more unified Harvard.
Now in its fourth year, the Harvard Masquerade Ball continues to bring the "one university" vision to fruition. We are thrilled that you want to be a part of this historic movement.
