Hi everyone! I’m Karl, an (as of last month) alum working as one of the two Deans’ Office Interns for the summer. I’m originally from St. Louis and have had an amazing time the past four years at Haverford. I majored in history, minored in political science (at Bryn Mawr), so if you have any questions about those two departments or taking classes at BMC please ask! During the past four years, I’ve served on the Residential Life Committee, Students’ Council, and the Student Political Network, and I encourage all of you to take advantage of the many extracurricular activities Haverford has to offer. Nate and I will be here through early August answering questions, assigning housing, and serving as a general resource for all of you. You can contact us through email (firstname.lastname@example.org), the facebook group, or by calling the reslife office. We’ll also be regularly updating this blog (along with Raisa) with important information regarding deadlines, forms, and the freshman experience, so please check back frequently. I hope you all enjoy the summer break, and congratulations on your graduation (or soon-to-be graduation) from high school! Trust me, you have a great four year ahead of you.
Hello to all of the excited members of the Class of 2017. My name is Nate, and I am a rising Sophomore at Haverford. I hail from the wonderful city of Baltimore, Maryland and had an incredible experience last year as a Freshman. While my major is still undeclared, I will most likely major in Economics or Psychology so let me know if you have any interest in those fields because I would be glad to share what I know about those departments. Outside of academics I am a member of the Varsity Squash team and I will be a Peer Awareness Facilitator (PAF) next year for the Customs program.
As Karl mentioned, we will be updating this blog with information that will be important to you. Our biggest task this summer will be housing all of you in the various first-year residences on campus so get excited for that. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com or call the Office of Residential Life.
I hope all of you have an amazing summer, and I wish everyone the best with the remaining weeks of school you may have. My advice for this summer is to relax and keep busy. As difficult as it is to wait until August 28, if you find ways to fill your time this summer, move-in day will be here much faster. Try something new, spend time with your friends, and take a trip if you can do it. I am looking forward to meeting all of you soon.
