The Student Faculty Basketball game is this Thursday! Bring your A-Game!

Hey Haverford! Come out to the annual Student-Faculty basketball game this Thursday, February 20th at 7:30pm in the Gardner Integrated Athletic Center Arena! Last year, the faculty/staff team was left in shambles after the student team rode a barrage of three pointers to a 20 point victory.

Will that happen again?  Or will the return of Professor’s Borowiak and Koltun-Fromm to the court after absences last year, coupled with the free agency additions of Strength and Conditioning Coach Cory Walts and Men’s Soccer Coach Shane Rineer lead the faculty/staff team to redemption?

It’s not too late to sign up! If you are still interested in playing on either the faculty or student teams email fordshavemorefun@gmail.com and tell us your name and team! Hope to see you there!

Hey Haverford!

Students’ Council has a surplus of $20,000 in our budget this year! We are holding a community forum at 8pm on December 4th in Sharpless Auditorium to figure out the best way to spend this money for the Haverford Community.

Some potential options include:

- Investing in a Grand Haverfest

- Adding the money to the general SC budget for the Spring

- Investing in additional Facilities Fund projects

- Saving the money in case of an urgent need later on in the semester

What would you do with $20,000?

What would you do with $20,000?

Let us know where you think we should invest the money in order to best serve the needs of the Haverford Community!

Over the weekend of November 2nd and 3rd the merry men in tights of Sherwood Forest gallivanted onto the featherbed fields in order to rob from the rich and give to the poor. Meanwhile female zombie farmers roamed the observatory fields seeking out human flesh…

That’s one interpretation of the events that transpired last weekend. Another explanation is simply that it was Haverween.

The Men’s and Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Teams, the Donkeys and Sneetches respectively, hosted their annual Ultimate Frisbee team tournament with over 28 teams from different colleges in attendance. Both teams came in second over all in their tournaments.

The Men’s tournament was highlighted by an 11-10 victory over top-seeded Dickinson in the semi-final thanks to a full field pass from Elias Borne to Harrison Schell. Sadly they fell short against rival St. Joes in the Men’s Championship game. The Sneetches put up a valiant fight but fell to the Haverford Alumni in the Women’s Championship game.

Hey Haverford!

The topic of discussion on Thursday, September 26th at 7:30pm in Chase Auditorium, will be a general introduction to the position of college president, Dan’s vision for Haverford, and an open forum for any questions about Haverford’s direction as an institution.

Come with questions, comments, and open ears and stay tuned for more upcoming events!

Tired of the hot meals? Got a little free time to spare? It's time to experiment with THE PITA.

Tired of the hot meals? Got a little free time to spare? It’s time to experiment with THE PITA. Photos taken by Marilyn Bannfoe-Bonnie

Every so often you might feel the urgent need to eat something new in the DC. The Student Activities Office is rolling out a new series of blog posts called DC Hacks to give you some fresh ideas for creative DC Meals. We begin with: The Pita, Nilla Wafers, and a Granola Yogurt Mix.

As you can see the pita can be a flexible component of any meal at the DC. In the above photo you see two types of pita sandwiches. One with tomato, cheddar cheese, soy beans, pepper ham and sriracha and the other has hummus, tomato, cucumber, feta, and sriracha. You can put pretty much anything in pita bread and they fit really well on the panini press. Pita bread is located with the rest of the breads right next to the salad bars on both wings of the DC. Normally they are at the top of the rack. It takes 5-10 minutes to put together a good pita sandwich.

I also included a photo of my favorite dessert at the DC. Plain yogurt, with chocolate chips, walnuts, craisins, and NILLA WAFFERS. It’s like eating kiwi, minus the froyo part, but if you want to add soft serve ice cream into the mix, go for it!

We’d love to hear about your favorite DC meals! Email us at fordshavemorefun@gmail.com or comment on this post to let us know.

Dan Weiss wants to see you on Founders Green on Monday, September 16th from 2pm-3pm! He’s got donuts.

Hey Haverford! We have a new president and he wants to get to know us. Throughout the year Students’ Council will offer a variety of different opportunities for Haverford students to talk with President Weiss (henceforth, Dan), about different issues and aspects of Haverford. Some of the conversations we host will be more formal and serious and some will be fun opportunities to meet Dan. Monday, September 16th, between 2 and 3pm we will be hosting a Donuts with Dan event on Founders Green.

If you are looking to relax and take a break from work, come on out and join us. If you do have class, don’t worry we will be holding more events like these in the future at different times. We will also be holding raffles at this event to sign up for smaller lunches and/or dinners with Dan throughout the year. If you can’t make the event, but want to sign up for a raffle please submit your name, number and email address to sc@haverford.edu.

Don’t forget to invite your friends. Hope to see you there!
