We are five weeks away from FUP!! FUPpies should have been emailed our Reading Packet and should read through it carefully before FUP. Much of FUP's programming involves the use of this packet. The selected articles present a variety of perspectives on race, class, gender, identity, ability status, religion, social justice, oppression, privilege, power structures and what it means to participate in service, activism, and social change. While you shouldn't feel pressured to agree with the articles, we encourage you to think critically about the issues they raise. This year, a group of especially dedicated leaders revamped the reading packet in order to improve both the readability and contemporary relevance of the articles. We've also added video clips, helpful tips for freshman year and notes to aid you in the reading process. We hope you enjoy it! The FUPprint should serve as a resource that you can reference throughout your time at Harvard!
Happy Spring! But we are already dreaming of August and FUP 2017! During the spring we select new FUPleaders, talk to community partners and plan for VISITAS! If you will be coming to campus on Visitas Weekend, come to the Student Organization Center at Hilles (known as the SOCH and prounounced either of two ways--like "sock" or like "sosh" as in "social". Don't ask us, we don't know why either), on Sunday, April 23rd, from 4-6pm to meet the FUPLeaders. They will be able to answer your questions and you will get hear all about this fabulous program in person!
The First-Year Urban Program is still months away away, but we are already counting down the days until August 17th! Here are several things that we think will be helpful to you in the meantime. If you will be here for VISITAs-- come visit us at the Extracurricular Activities Fair and listen to our presentation Sunday, April 17 from 1-2pm in Science Center Hall B.
All information should be found here at this website. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need an immediate response, please contact our advisor, Varsha, email@example.com.
