Who wouldn't want to be the president of Harvard? After traversing through China in 2008 and much of Africa during Thanksgiving last year, University President Drew G. Faust’s next destination is Tokyo, Japan. This, of course, is all for business purposes only, namely in a continued effort to promote Harvard and encourage international scholastic cooperation.
According to an e-mail sent out to the Harvard Alumni Association and the Harvard Club of Japan, Faust plans to dine at the Harvard Club in Tokyo on Tuesday, Mar. 16, from 6 to 9 p.m.
But the price of eating with the president is steep. The meal costs about ¥15,000 or $165 for alumni and guests. So maybe next time Faust comes to a dining hall near you, take advantage of the opportunity to chat her up—free of charge.
