Halie Olson

Academic Details




Framingham, MA






Hi everyone! My name is Halie, and I’m a senior from Framingham, MA (which isn’t too far from here) now living in Currier House. I’m concentrating in Neurobiology on the Mind/Brain/Behavior track, and I'm currently writing my senior thesis (which is actually pretty fun!). Here at Harvard, I am involved in a few different extracurricular activities. In addition to spending lots of time doing research on babies and brains in a developmental cognitive neuroscience lab, I also participate in a mentoring program in South Boston and serve as a Peer Advising Fellow for Harvard freshmen. When I have some downtime, you’ll usually find me going for runs around Cambridge or spending time with my friends. I am so excited to be working with the Admissions Office, and I can’t wait to share everything I love about Harvard with all of you.
