For students who want a pre-collegiate experience at a college they’re interested in attending or who just want to get away for the summer and explore a new city, Digital Media Academy offers the best of both worlds. Learn on the Harvard University campus, and, when you’re not in class, safely explore the surrounding area. Digital Media Academy selected Harvard not only because of its superior reputation as a liberal arts and public research college, but also because of its superior campus location in scenic Cambridge, Massachusetts, near Boston.

The main campus is centered on famous Harvard Yard in central Cambridge, a unique community with a strong mix of cultural and social diversity, intellectual vitality and technological innovation. That campus also extends into the surrounding Harvard Square neighborhood, with noteworthy restaurants and shops.

Campus Facts

Founded: 1636, making Harvard the oldest institution of higher learning in the U.S.

Campus Size: Harvard’s main campus occupies 210 acres in Cambridge, Massachusetts (and is located less than 4 miles from downtown Boston), across from the Charles River.

Local Attractions: Cambridge attractions include key historical locations such as the Cambridge Common, where George Washington trained the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. Representative buildings from that period include the Cooper-Frost-Austin House, the Hooper-Lee-Nichols House and Longfellow House (which served as one of George Washington’s wartime headquarters). Harvard attractions include Harvard Square, the Harvard Museum of Natural History, Brattle House and the Harvard Art Museum (comprising the Fogg Museum, the Busch-Reisinger Museum and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum).

Famous Alumni: Harvard counts eight U.S. presidents (John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, George W. Bush and Barack Obama) among its alumni, as well as the heads of state of numerous foreign countries. Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg got their starts at Harvard, as did physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer. Philosopher Henry David Thoreau was educated at Harvard, as were poets T.S. Eliot and E.E. Cummings. Authors schooled there include Ralph Waldo Emerson and William S. Burroughs. Famed conductor Leonard Bernstein attended, as did leading cellist Yo Yo Ma. TV host and funnyman Conan O’Brien is a Harvard grad. So are actors Tommy Lee Jones (who roomed with fellow alumnus, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore), Natalie Portman, Matt Damon, Ashley Judd, Jack Lemmon and Rashida Jones. Film directors Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) and Terence Malick (The Tree of Life) also attended. Some 75 Nobel laureates are or have been affiliated with the school.

Onscreen Appearances: Harvard locations have appeared in numerous movies and TV shows, including The Social Network (2010), The Great Debaters (2007), Stealing Harvard (2002),Legally Blonde (2001), Good Will Hunting (1997), The Paper Chase (1973) and Love Story (1970).

Cool Facts: In addition to being the first university in the nation, Harvard was also the first corporation chartered in the U.S. Also, Harvard is the alma mater of 62 living billionaires, the most in the country.

Harvard University is the nation’s pre-eminent institution of higher learning, as well as its oldest. Serving an enrollment of more than 21,000 students, Harvard offers 46 undergrad majors, 134 graduate degrees and 32 professional degrees. The university has the largest financial endowment of any academic institution in the world, at approximately $32 billion. The Harvard University Library is the largest academic library in the U.S. In 2011, “U.S. News & World Report” ranked Harvard as number one among national universities.
