Meet the Office of Admission bloggers.
Josh Mussa ’13
Hello! My name is Joshua Mussa, Class of 2013. I’m a Religion major with a minor in Africana Studies and a concentration in Gender & Sexuality Studies. I’m an avid reader, (wannabe) gelato connoisseur, and Seattle-area native. Haverford is my home; I’m learning, growing, and laughing here all the time. My most meaningful co-curricular experiences have been with the Customs Program, the Writing Center, Honor Council, and the Board of Managers. I’d love to share my college adventures with you through this blog. Perhaps my stories will help you imagine Haverford as a place you too could call home someday!
Sonia Giebel ’14
Hello! My name is Sonia and I’m an English major with Education and Sociology minors from Seattle. I am a food-fanatic, devoted Deutscher-Fußball-Fan, and call Haverford home. My time here has been enriching in so many ways and really can’t be appreciated through simple statistics and facts; I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share my experiences and offer a little more insight as to what makes Haverford, Haverford.
Samara Flug ’15
Hi! I’m Samara, a sophomore from New York City, and a History major and Education minor. Outside of class, I play for Haverford’s women’s squash team as well as our women’s ultimate team, called the Sneetches. I have also served on Honor Council for a year and a half and am part of our orientation program, Customs, as an Honor Code Orienteer. Haverford has so much to offer and I can’t wait to write about all of our big events, exciting classes, and the day-to-day things in between!
Allison Martinez-Davis ’13
Hey guys! I’m Allison and I’m a junior from Pasadena, California. I’m a Political Science major, an Anthropology minor, and concentrating in Peace, Justice, and Human Rights. Here at Haverford, I play on the women’s varsity soccer team, work in the Admission Office, and am on the Student Events Committee.
3 Fun Facts:
- If I could, I would go to Starbucks every morning before class.
- Before coming to Haverford, I thought it was cold when it was 70 degrees outside.
- I am secretly obsessed with the Food Network and the show Cupcake Wars.
Franklyn Cantor ’12
I’m a History of Art major and a Political Science minor, and my home is only five or six miles from campus! I love being involved on campus, and have been a part of Students’ Council (Co-President, Co-Vice President, Treasurer), our freshman orientation program (Customs), and a number of committees on campus. I’m not athletic, but I love professional sports, and my friends and I love to play intramural sports together! I love iced tea, ice cream (particularly chocolate chip or cookie dough) and have an undying passion for striped shirts! I’m really happy to be able to blog for the Admission Office and share the experiences and perspectives that have made Haverford such an amazing place for me.
Hannah Solomon-Strauss ’12
I am a senior political science major at Haverford, originally from Chicago. At Haverford I work in Admission and I have rowed on the crew team. My interest in politics started with a high school career in Model UN and this summer I worked as a research assistant at the Foreign Policy Research Institute in downtown Philadelphia. As you might guess, I love to talk (and have a lot of practice), and I especially love to talk about Haverford, so I’m very excited to be chatting with you all about Haverford, or anything else!
