Hello Fords,

Spring Break is just around the corner and I cannot wait for it. Personally I will be in my bed watching Netflix & Hulu, but if you are looking for things to do, no worries here is a list of things to do in Philly!

 

NEIGHBORHOODS TO VISIT

Top 2 in Philly:

South Street

A few blocks from Suburban Station, this street is filled with a lot of interesting shops, great restaurants, and the impressive  Magic Gardens. You can keep on walking down and end up in Penn’s Landing, where you can go ice skating on The Lodge at Waterfront Winterland. Afterwards you can  go to The Franklin Fountain and enjoy their delicious floats and/or freshly made ice creams.

Chinatown

Get off on Market East Station and walk two blocks down into Chinatown! You have the option of eating Chinese, Vietnamese, Burmese, etc. My favorite restaurant is Rangoon, which serves great Burmese food. You’ll order ten of their Thousand Layer Cakes. After that you can pass by Tea Do and try out one of their delicious Bubble Teas!

  • 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!

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

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!
