Shaun King, #BlackLivesMatter Activist, Speaks at Haverford

After Shaun King’s talk on Wednesday night, students rushed to the front of Founders Great Hall to get a souvenir of the event: a selfie with the prominent #BlackLivesMatter figure and social media genius himself. “By using social media to highlight, amplify, and discuss news of police brutality, racial discrimination, and other civil rights issues, King has become an ...

Handle With Care: Is Our Dining Center Culture Healthy?

Last time you were here we were just getting introduced, and I know that when you first meet someone it can be hard to remember all the important information they give, so let’s recap. I wrote mainly about perspective and how the mental states we take into into every situation are vital to our experience of that situation. This week, I want to talk about my take on the p ...

Haverford Club Reclaiming Nudity, Questioning Norms

For Full Mooner Lunar, this has been the perfect opportunity to “reclaim nudity as a non-sexual thing,” according to Abby Reuscher ’17, one of the club’s co-heads.

Dear Haverfriend: Party Animals, Mean Professors, and the Unacknowledged Hook Up

Hey, everyone! I am a real Haverford student and I have strong opinions about your life. Just remember that I can’t substitute for professional advice because I am an undergrad and consequently I know nothing. Dear Haverfriend, I’m a first year, and while I generally like my customs group, none of them really like going out. While I wouldn't call myself a party animal, ...

Clerk Chronicles: Joe Binotto, General Manager of Dining Services

How did you get started in food service? I actually worked my way through school in restaurants. When I was in high school and college, I did various positions in a family-owned Italian restaurant in New York. I did everything from bussing tables to waitering. I learned how to cook, make pizza, and run the front of the house. Eventually I became a manager. And so, while I ...

How Do We Stack Up? A Comparative Look at Haverford’s Financial Aid

The class of 2018 is indeed lucky. It is grandfathered in under Haverford’s old,  need-blind policy. Need-blind means that a prospective applicant’s financial means don’t have a bearing on admissions decisions. Haverford is now need-aware.
