  • hello Everyone, I'm an intern for the Student Activities Office! I'm an English major and Japanese minor. I was born and raised in New York and love turning my city into my playground. During my free time I like to hang out with my friends in the city. I often drag them to the local karaoke lounges in Koreatown. (because no matter what anybody says, butchering the latest pop songs in front of your family and friends is a liberating experience! :P) Other than singing I love dancing, fighting games, and meeting new people. So feel free to use me as a resource! Peace!

That’s right!  The SAO is now bringing daily news, club and event updates, and a good sense of humor to your Twitter feed!

After the interns poured blood, sweat, and tears into the blog, Lilly agreed to expand the SAO social media empire to include a Twitter.  The account, Haverford SAO @Havertivities, will be managed by all 9 of the totally awesome interns.

So, go ahead, check it out! And if you’re not on Twitter? Make an account (just to follow us!).  It’s easy, fast, and you are sure to get addicted!  Haven’t you heard?  Twitter is, like, totally the new Facebook.

You may be wondering… is there anything fun to do during finals? Any good study breaks? Or something to pass the time if all your finals are done??? As always, you can count on FAB to bring some fun to campus. FAB will be hosting three traditional finals week events this year:

f13Midnight Cheesesteak

MIDNIGHT BREAKFAST- Sunday, December 15th, 11:30pm-1:00am Dining Center

Pop on over from Magill and grab some munchies, served up by the DC, FAB, and deans (and maybe some surprise guests too!)!
BEN & JERRY’S BINGO- Monday, December 16th, 8:30pm DC East Wing

MIDNIGHT CHEESESTEAK RUN- Wednesday, December 18th, depart 11:30pm from the Campus Center

Bus leaves at 11:30pm to head into Philly for some spectacular cheesesteaks. The bus fills quickly, so get there early!! The first fifty people get a ride to cheesesteak heaven. Remember to bring $$, as FAB will take you to Philly, but we won’t buy you dinner!

Best of luck on finals from FAB and the SAO!
