Connect with Students


"What is life at HDS really like?"

Prospective students consistently want to know the truth about the HDS experience. Perhaps the best way to gain a genuine sense of life at Harvard Divinity School is to interact with someone who is currently living it. Students from each of our degree programs have come together to provide firsthand resources for prospective students regarding what it means to be a member of the HDS community.

HDS Facts

HDS shield
Harvard alumnus Pierre de Chaignon la Rose designed the Harvard graduate school shields for the occasion of the 1936 Tercentenary of Harvard College. For the HDS shield, he used the Hollis family coat of arms (a blue chevron containing three wood-pigeons with three sprigs of holly interspersed in the white background), beneath the University motto, Veritas.
