Harvard Club of the Palm Beaches

Signature Summer Event


"The Annual Student Send-Off"

The Harvard Family is expanding!

Join us for a spirited Crimson send-off for Palm Beach County students who will be entering/returning to Harvard this fall.

The Harvard Club of the Palm Beaches has exclusive access to the Cox Science Center for this private event.

Keynote by West Palm Beach Mayor Keith James AB '79, JD '82

Begin your evening in the Cox Science Center's Stiles-Nicholson Hall of Discovery where recent and not-so-recent grads mix and mingle during the cocktail hour!  This is your opportunity to celebrate our region’s newly admitted students' achievements and to share memories of your own days in Cambridge (well, some of the memories…). 
Then, a live vocal performance by Dreyfoos School of the Arts graduate & First-Year Harvard College student, Amelia Williams '27, followed by introductions to the region's newly-admitted Harvard College students. 
We end our main program with a keynote address by
West Palm Beach Mayor Keith James AB '79, JD '82. 
Cap off the evening with your choice of (1) a private Planetarium show, (2) exploration of the Science Center & Aquarium on your own, or (3) more banter with your Cantab.
