Initiating Mutual Understanding through Student Exchange (IMUSE) is a non-profit organization founded in 2007 and run by students at Harvard, Tsinghua, and Peking Universities that aims to foster mutual curiosity, respect, and understanding between people in China and North America by providing them with opportunities for personal reflection and social interaction about issues pertaining to both regions today.

Harvard College student organization devoted to the training and performance of modern Chinese martial arts, including 长拳 (longfist),  南拳 (Southern fist), 棍术 (staff), 刀术 (broadsword), 剑术 (straightsword), and other styles and weapons.

Blogs

Frequently updated blog with useful and detailed information on a number of topics in science, computers, philosophy, entrepreneurship, and culture. Part of a project dedicated to teaching the art of cultivating oneself as a polymath.

**This is not to be confused with Polymath Projects, a blog about topics in collaborative mathematics research.

An insider’s account on life in urban and rural China written by former classmate and fellow IMUSE director Evan Kornbluh.

Entertaining and informative accounts by American girl about the Seoul dating scene.

Art

Thorough and well organized collection of FF concept art from the greats: Tetsuya Nomura, Akhiko Yoshida, and, of course, Yoshitaka Amano.

Absolutely stunning sci-fi landscapes and scenes worth remembering and getting lost in.

Emotionally captivating drawings, watercolors, and photography by former classmate and fellow IMUSE design department collaborator Lushen Wu.

Webcomics

Simultaneously enough humor to be entertaining and enough math, science, and philosophy to keep you from feeling too guilty about spending half an hour reading it.

For the unshowered, Cheeto-fingered weekend gamer in all of us.

VGCats minus the cats. More computer-game than console-game oriented than the former.

Not a webcomic but a gallery of (super old-school) Flash animations. I laughed over them repeatedly in high school. I highly recommend starting with this one. You will probably find them boring and incomprehensible if you’re younger than twenty.
