|Statue of three lies|
So I watched the "Social Network" movie for the 2nd time and I came across this scene where they're at this fraternity initiation ritual and they're standing next to Harvard's statue of three lies and it came across my mind that it'd be nice to write an article about this old and prestigious college.
|New College or Harvard, back in the day|
Harvard is one of the nine institutions chartered in the American Colonies called The Colonial Colleges. Seven of the nine colonial colleges are part of the Ivy League athletic conference: Harvard, Yale, Penn, Princeton, Columbia, Brown, and Dartmouth. The two colonial colleges not in the Ivy League are now both public universities—The College of William & Mary and Rutgers University, the state university of New Jersey. Harvard's history, influence, and wealth have made it one of the most prestigious universities in the world.
