About Harvard University

Harvard University is the oldest institution of higher education in the United States. The college received its name from its first benefactor, a young minister named John Harvard. When Harvard passed away in 1638, he left his library and half of his estate to the institution. His statue, the university’s most well-known landmark, stands in front of University Hall in Harvard Yard. In addition to the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University has 12 degree-granting schools. Since its humble beginnings with just 9 students and one professor, Harvard has grown to enrol more than 20,000 degree candidates at a time. The Harvard Shield features the latin motto “VERITAS” which means “truth.” As the top Ivy League School in the nation, this motto is especially appropriate. So far, thirteen US presidents have received degrees from Harvard, including Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and George H.W. Bush.

Why charter a bus to visit Harvard University

When organizing a group trip to Harvard University, you’re going to want to rent a school bus or Boston charter bus. There are limited parking options on and near the campus and regular construction and renovation projects can make maneuvering around campus an unnecessary hassle for large groups. With a designated and easily accessible drop off and pick up location, your group can enjoy the convenience of a Boston charter bus company with a private driver.
