Tour inside Harvard University @ Cambridge, Massachusetts

Harvard University is the world's most prestigious and influential. It is one of the eight Ivy league institution of higher learning. Visitors to Boston will include Harvard University as one of the must visit places as the university is so well known and full of history. The university also have many notable alumni such as Barack Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, John F. Kennedy and Bill Gates. The university is so successful that it even have a large endowment of more than USD30 billion to support its research, museums, library and offer financial aid to their students. At that amount of endowment it easily exceed some of the countries Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Harvard university alumni include eight USA President, head of states from around the world, 60 billionaires and about 150 Nobel laureates. That's an amazing feat!

The Harvard Lampoon building. The Harvard Lampoon is an undergraduate humor publication.

The Harvard Lampoon building features a copper ibis, symbol of the Lampoon, mounted on the top of the dome. It was first installed in 1909, but has frequently been stolen and returned ever since. On one occasion members of The Harvard Crimson, the student newspaper and rival of the Lampoon, issues an annual Crimson parody issue, stole the statue and presented it as a gift to the Russian delegation to the UN.
