Connect with Students

"What is life at HDS really like?"

Prospective students consistently desire to hear an insider's perspective of 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. We offer several resources through which current students can connect with prospective students and share what it means to be a member of the HDS community.

Ask a Student

Our Ask a Student program allows you to connect directly with a current HDS student. You may be interested in speaking with current students who share your academic interests or career goals, come from your home state or city, share your faith background, or had questions, as you may have, about housing or finding a job on campus.

To connect with a current student, email ask_students@hds.harvard.edu or leave a voicemail message at 617.495.0639.

Read the Student Blog

Our Student Blog offers candid reflections from current students on topics such as diversity, faculty access, courses, and the realities of studying in a pluralistic environment.

Visit Campus

During the academic year, our Student Ambassadors are happy to take you on a campus tour and answer your questions about HDS. As you explore whether HDS would be a good fit for you, consider [making a trip to campus] to meet current students and experience life at HDS firsthand.
