Chris Scanlon

Welcome to Elm Yard!  I advise the students living in Grays, Matthews, and Weld supporting academic and social transitions to the College.  I’ve been here in the First-Year Experience office since 2020 and have loved being part of this community at Harvard.  My academic research has focused on collegiate contexts for teaching and learning to explore how different environmental factors contribute to college student success. I'm a life-long hockey player and a new cyclocross enthusiast but I spent most of my time singing to my dog, Scout, and taking her for walks around the Yard.
