Ireland Trip: About

Greg Rosnick '09

Greg Rosnick '09

Senior guard Greg Rosnick ’09 (Langhorne, Pa./Neshaminy) will be filing posts for the Fords men’s basketball team in Ireland throughout the teams nine-day trip.

Rosnick is a two-year starter at point guard and is a co-captain this season. He has averaged 2.5 assists per game for his career and is fifth all-time in that category at Haverford.

Last year Rosnick capped off his junior year with a career-high 22 points and 12 rebounds in a 78-70 overtime victory against arch-rival Swarthmore.

Within the theme of the College’s Statement of Purpose, the Fords men’s basketball squad embarks on a trip across the ‘pond’ to literally live out their “respect and concern for others” as they mingle with and learn about their peers in Ireland.

The men will have multiple opportunities on their excursion to gain knowledge of the local history and culture, learning about what life is like in Belfast, Dublin, Londenberry, and Ballina from their peers in Ireland.
During these sessions the American men will create a two-way street of knowledge with those that they meet, talking about the United States and answering questions about what is sure to be a wide range of topics from politics to pop culture to economics.

The men will fill the Statement of Purpose’s goal of “interaction of the individual and the community” not only through their time in Ireland, but also when they return to the States as they will host an informal presentation on the Haverford campus under the auspices of the College’s Center for Peace and Global Citizenship where they will duplicate their conversational exchanges in Ireland with their own peers and the campus community at Haverford College.
