Proctors are graduate students and administrators who live in the dorms with first-year students and create an academic and social community for the 20 to 40 students in their entryway. Proctors host weekly study breaks and will help with your adjustment to Harvard. You'll find they are an excellent source of information about academics, extracurriculars, social life, and College resources.
