Wexner Israel Fellowship Class 25, with Harvard Faculty Chair Professor Brian Mandell, meet Robert Kraft at a preseason game for his NFL football team, the New England Patriots, in a room full of Super Bowl and other trophies.

Class 25 of the Wexner Israel Fellowship kicked off their Harvard school year with the quintessential American experience last week: an American football game.
