Miami, September 22, 2015 - SAS Wolfson senior Anastasia Tishena was selected for participation in a very special program at Harvard University this past summer. The seven week immersion program on the campus of Harvard in Boston gave Anastasia the opportunity to take two classes for credit. Through many hours of study in Harvard's Widener library, she was able to make an "A" in both Genetics and Philosophy.

The expenses of attending the program were mostly covered by Harvard and Anastasia had the opportunity to live in a dorm in Eliot House for the seven weeks she was on campus. Participants attended a large college fair and workshops on the college admission process where they got to interact with actual representatives from all of the Ivy League schools and other top tier universities.

Anastasia was most impressed by the diverse group of extremely talented students who attended the program. She was able to meet young people from Turkey, Russia, Iran, India, California, and a Miami student from the Academy for Advanced Academics (sister program to SAS).

In addition to thoroughly exploring the campus of Harvard and nearby MIT, the program also sponsored visits to Yale, Brown, Six Flags, and Cape Cod.

Sounds like a great summer experience.
