…don’t worry, we won’t have any wrenches to throw.

But we will have a trove of dodgeballs and nerf guns ready for some capture the flag pickup games, so come play some nerf!

From 2pm to 5pm is open season with foam projectiles, and those who own their own nerf arsenals are encouraged to come out in full force with their armaments.

Just show up, bring some friends, and play some nerf to blow of steam, it will be a blast(er).

Haverford isn’t the only school with a student-managed Honor Code, but it is the the only school that publishes abstracts for every academic and social case. We also aren’t the only school with a ‘social code’ built into the Honor Code, but we are one of the only schools that offers a chance to change the Honor Code in an accessible way every year. These values are rooted in the ideal that the Honor Code is a living and evolving document, changing as the makeup of the student body changes. They are rooted in the idea that informing the community and community discussion about instances where the Code was broken and trust was restored allow us a chance to reflect upon and educate ourselves about what the Honor Code means to us. In that sense, the release of abstracts and abstract discussions are a constant reminder of the values the Code represents to us as a community and allows us a chance to have discussion about that throughout the time we are here.

When Honor Council sent a delegation to the Hamilton Honor Code Conference this past September, we participated in multiple panels and discussions with other school’s Honor Councils. Reed, Union, Hamilton and Davidson joined us there. They all expressed surprise that we released abstracts to the community, much more so, the detailed ones we do today. They brought up a law that prohibited schools from publishing summaries of disciplinary proceedings, to which our delegation replied, “Honor Council trials are not disciplinary proceedings”.

Students discuss abstract ‘Toy Story’ in Ryan Gym

This week, three new abstracts were released to the community – The Office, The Newsroom, & Dexter’s Laboratory – abstract discussions will be happening on Wednesday, October 29th at 7:30 PM in Ryan Gym. There will be some fall snacks – pumpkin pie, apple cider, and halloween candy. Often, past freshman year HCO sessions, there aren’t a lot of opportunities to discuss the Code, that is where the importance of attending at least a few abstract discussions comes in. Honor Council is also hosting a community forum on The Perceptions of Honor Council on Thursday, October 30th at 7:30 PM in Ryan Gym with the same fall themed delicious snacks!

So attend an abstract discussion at least a couple times a year, go to a community forum, certainly attend Plenary and consider what the Code means to you! It isn’t a perfect document and there are a lot of issues surrounding it that need to be addressed this year and beyond, but it is special. Hope to see you at a discussion this fall!

With fall break in our rear view mirrors, we’ve only got a couple months left until semester’s end! Of course, you may find yourself bored and looking for something different from time to time, and that is where FAB always has you covered. The semester has already been a full one for us thus far, right before the break we had our annual Oktoberfest, with grilled sausage and live music! Prior to that we had our regular trip to Linvilla Orchards for apple picking, we put on Screw Date and Screw: Cookie Decorating, brought a comedian on campus, took a trip to Cirque Du Soleil, went to see a Phillies game and had Quizzo! With all of these events gone and done with, let’s take a look at what’s coming up in the semester.

Humans vs. Zombies, October 22nd to October 31st: Nerd House and FAB collaborate with Double Star from Bryn Mawr to bring you the first Bi-Co Humans vs. Zombies! This apocalyptic event was a hit last year, where zombies scourge the campus attempting to infect humans, who have nerf guns and socks to fight them off. Bandanas are picked up on October 21st, so if you have yet to sign up, do so now – checking your email inbox!

Barnes Museum Trip, November 8th: Tickets will be available on Haverticket prior to the event. Come travel into Philadelphia to the Barnes Museum, one of the largest and most expansive collections of art and culture in America, with over 800 paintings and 2,500 objects. This is an amazing opportunity to get out of the Haverbubble for a bit and enjoy the works of impressionist and modernist masters.

Cooking Class Trip, Likely Weekend of November 15th:  While the date is not totally set, you should expect the event to pop up on Haverticket sometime soon! Last year we traveled off campus to the Reading Terminal Market for some extensive cooking classes (and dinner). This year expand your culinary expertise while also expanding your stomach with some cooking lessons and delicious food! A great chance to get off campus and enjoy a night outside of Haverford.

Enjoy your personally created appetizer, entree and desert while also refining your culinary expertise!

DC Iron Chef, November 14th & December 5th, DC Sunken Lounge: Two DC Iron Chef Events?? Well, actually three. Following up on the successes of last year, FAB brings back DC: Iron Chef in an expanded format. Based on the hit TV series, four teams will compete for first place and the prizes that come with it. Every team has a kitchenette set up in the DC Sunken Lounge and contains four members, based on a secret ingredient selected by FAB, they must prepare an appetizer, entree and desert dish for the panel of judges. Each round is judged individually, and the teams even make sample cups for onlookers. This year, we are having TWO preliminary rounds, and after winter break, the top teams from each round will compete for the grand prize! Look for an hc-all email soon to sign up for teams!

The Nutcracker, December 6th:  Come see The Nutcracker at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia for some seasonal entertainment. You must see this show at least once, and hopefully more in your lifetime, and all-time classic, FAB is once again booking a bus and tickets to bring you there! Look on Haverticket closer to the event for information about that.

The Nutcracker has been successful and renowned since its first performance in 1892.

Finals Week Events, Finals Week (December 14th – 19th): Of course, how could any semester end without three classic FAB Finals Week events. We kick off the week with Midnight Breakfast on Sunday, December 14th in the DC from 11PM-1AM. Come enjoy a feast of french toast sticks, tater tots, eggs, bacon and orange juice served to you by President Weiss, the Deans and FAB! Next up, we have Ben and Jerry’s Bingo on Monday, December 15th from 7-10PM in the DC. Come enjoy a plethora of flavors and pints of Ben and Jerry’s while playing bingo for prizes! Finally, the Midnight Cheesesteak Run into Philadelphia to Pat’s and Geno’s, takes place at Midnight on December 17th, a Wednesday. First come, first serve on the bus, we meet outside the Campus Center. More information on all of these events when the time comes!

Of course, always check our table tents in the DC, posters around campus, and emails for updates on all of these events and if we happen to plan any new ones (which does happen often)! If you’d like to be on our email list, just give hc-fab@haverford.edu an email. Hope to see you at these events!

Are you one of the few peoples far and few between that is staying at Haverford for fall break?  Don’t feel alone, because Schaf (and plenty of others) are in the same boat! And if you really don’t want to spend break catching up on your organic chemistry and spanish work, or crying into your biology textbook, you can feel free to break the Haverbubble. But, where would you go? There are so many places to go! Yet so little to do!  But is this REALLY true….? OF COURSE NOT! For each day of fall break, a list has been compiled just for you, so that YOU, yes YOU, have places to go, people to see, and things to do in the wonderful, lovely, amazing city of Philadelphia.

Just remember, fall break doesn’t have to involve crying in your dorm room alone, living off of nutella and crackers.  There’s a whole outside world you can explore, and friends you can manke (just like on November 13th *sneak peak* *cough cough*).

Crunch through and finish those midterms, and remember to have a super sparkly day!

Have you been enjoying all of the FAB events so far?
Just a quick recap, there was Quizzo + Insomnia Cookies in the library, Cirque du Soleil, Phillies vs Marlins game, Fab Comedian, Screw and Cookie decorating, Apple picking, First Friday, and Oktoberfest… with so much more to come! Personally, I’m really looking forward to DC Iron Chef and the whole lineup of Finals Week events! The Finals Week events are a long standing FAB tradition. FAB members (This could be you!) serve breakfast at midnight to start off finals week, take a bus full of students to the city for a Midnight Cheesesteak Run, and also run Ben & Jerry’s Bingo as a nice study break to eat free ice cream and get a chance to win cash prizes! This is only first semester, too… so just wait till you get to the spring semester!

If you are interested in working with us, to scoop ice cream for the worn out students at Ben & Jerry’s Bingo during finals week, to organize off-campus trips to explore Philly and watch sports games, and mostly, really, to have a TON OF FUN working with us and contributing to student life on campus, APPLY!

FABblications are due the coming Sunday, at 11:59 PM. If not yet submitted, your application turns into a pumpkin :(

Looking forward to meeting our NEW FABlets,

 <= you could be in this photo with us!!!

It’s the first weekend of October, and FAB has you covered. Last weekend was a fun one for FAB, we put on Screw Date and then had our classic Screw Date: Cookie Decorating afterwords. We also took a trip to Linvilla Orchards for our annual Apple Picking trip!

We’ve got another two events this weekend, check them out!

10/3: FAB First Friday Bus - We’ll be having a shuttle for the night, taking you into Philly and back into Haverford, all for free! First Friday is a fantastic monthly event in Philadelphia, and a great way to spend your night outside of the Haverbubble. Our first bus will be departing for Philly at 5PM, a great time to leave for an early dinner and a night in the city. Our second bus will be departing for Philly at 7:30PM! We’ll then have a bus bringing you back to Haverford from Philly at 8:30PM and 10:30PM respectively. So take us up on this great opportunity to get into the city, see you there.

Philly for 'Fords!

Grab some dinner, listen to live music, walk around and see the sights. First Friday is a must attend!

10/5: FAB Oktoberfest - This is a classic yearly event that you can’t miss. Join us on Founders Green from 2-4PM on Sunday, 10/5 for grilled sausage, snacks, a root beer keg, music and more! This is our 5th annual Oktoberfest, so please join us to celebrate the coming of the month this Sunday. Plenary is later that night, so grab some food during DC off hours before you head down there!

fest05cut-08

FAB will be grilling up sausage for the afternoon, join us!

We’ll see you at the GIAC at 6PM this coming Sunday for Plenary! There comes a time every semester for the student body to gather and collectively argue over changes to our beloved constitution. Whether it be you up at the pro-con mics, presenting a Plenary resolution, giddily filling out your Plenary Bingo cards with names of sure-thing speakers or simply eating some pizza and enjoying the show – this is the one special event we can count on to come together as a college and represent what self-governance really means.

plenary

This once per semester massive gathering of students is the only time changes can take place in our constitution! At Fall Plenary, the Alcohol Policy is ratified in addition to all other resolutions being brought forth! (Photo by Liza Alpert ’13)

Honor Council and Student’s Council will each be presenting resolutions of their own, other resolutions may remain. To see it all go down, head down with your friends, sports team, customs group or  anyone at all! For those new on campus, this is a great time to get to know how self-governance at Haverford works. Anyone has the ability to bring a resolution forth at Plenary and bring about major changes to the constitution, even if that resolution makes you the dictator of the Honor Code. For those who have never played it before, Plenary Bingo is the hit game where you fill in your board with people you believe will come up to speak at Plenary, the other regular rules of Bingo apply – how well do you know your campus? So be there, let’s meet Quorum and then so much more!

Have any questions? Just email the lovely Co-Presidents of Student’s Council who put this event on every semester at sc@haverford.edu. See you there!

The age old Havertradition is finally upon us: Screw Date.

As common knowledge tells us, customs teams have been working hard over the last few weeks to pair up their freshmen with other freshmen, and if not freshmen, someone with a pulse (hopefully).  And these pairings may be……in good faith of the customs teams, or in the case for some of the freshmen,  an awkward, unfortunate “date”.

Whether your “line is lame” or your date doesn’t show (but free candy, woot woot!), or you end up with a new best friend, Screw date is fun for all involved.  Except maybe the freshmen.  (Jk).

Now if I were a freshman, I’d be wondering “what in the world would my Screw Date and I be doing?  Like do I have to take them out to eat and pay for them, and if so, do I LOOK like someone who wants to buy a random person food?”

Well the answer is no, FAB and FUCS and The Throng have got you covered.  Whether you both have a mutual interest in music, in comedy, or in cookies (and I mean, who DOESN’T love cookies?), you can go to any one of those events that start at the times listed below:

  • FAB’s Cookie Decorating 7:30 – 9 pm at the CPCG Cafe
  • FUCS DJ Ushka & Zuzuka Poderosa 10-2 am at James House
  • The Throng: Throng Show 9-10:30 pm

 

The fun begins Friday, September 26th,  at 6:30 in Marshall Auditorium.  Let’s just hope no one is hypnotized this time around.

Get ready for the fun, and remember to have a super sparkly day until then!
