FUCS is back!
This Friday, September 23, marks the return of FUCS, Haverford’s well-loved concert series. FUCS has invited punk bands Disaster Artist and Friend, who are members of the Tuna Collective, Philadelphia-based music and art collective. Both bands are known for their screaming vocals and chaotic stage presence; according to FUCS board member Matt Curran ‘24, “It’s gonna go absolutely bonkers, and you can quote me on that.” Curran recommends their 2022 joint cyberpunk concept album, Resurrection in the City of Angels and Androids.
All tri-co students are invited to the free show, which will begin at 9 pm in Lunt Basement. Students can look forward to many more shows in a range of genres for the rest of the semester.
Armed Robbery Occurs Outside of Haverford College Apartments
On Thursday, September 15th, an armed robbery occurred behind Haverford College Apartment 812 at 10:05 PM. Bi-Co Executive Director of Campus Safety Lil Burroughs issued a campus-wide alert by by text and email. According to the email, neither the victim nor the suspect are affiliated with the college. The suspect was described as “a male, approximately 30 years old, stocky build wearing a black hat, a black coat and has a cropped beard.” He robbed the victim at gunpoint, taking a wallet and cellphone, before fleeing down Ardmore Avenue.
In a follow-up email to the community the next day, Dean McKnight said, “Campus Safety has increased patrols in order to establish a 24/7 presence in that immediate vicinity.” He also reminded students of the campus’s ‘blue light’ emergency phone system and that Campus Safety is available to provide walking escorts at all times. McKnight also suggested that any students “experiencing feelings of heightened concern” can reach out to CAPS for a session and that faculty and staff can similarly utilize the Carebridge system.
A robbery occurred in the same vicinity on May 26, 2022. That case also did not involve any Haverford community member
