On Saturday, September 27th FAB will be welcoming the arrival of AUTUMN by taking a bus full of students to go apple picking!

Bring a box back to your dorm! Apples that you choose and pick from a tree just taste better.

Bring a box back to your dorm! Apples that you choose and pick from a tree just taste better.

At Linvilla orchards, there are not only rows and rows and rows of different types of apples, but on September 27th they host an annual Apple Festival! Accompanying the usual spread of Apple cider doughnuts and funnel cakes, Linvilla has a pie eating contest (2 pm) and several games and attractions around the fields.

A few hints and tricks for those who plan to attend: looking for apples to bake a pie? Pick and buy some Granny Smith Apples.

Pumpkins and Gourds are also available if you want to get a head start on your pumpkin carving for Halloween. Make sure to bring cash to purchase apples from the orchard, and homemade baked goods from the store!!!

Instead of signing up on Haverticket, this trip will have a bus rush policy. Meet at the Campus Center BY 12 to get a spot, the first 45 people there will get a spot on the bus. We hope to see you there!

Hi all!

It’s that time of year again, prepare your inbox for a mass influx of emails, because elections for an enormous variety of positions are about to open! Nominations will open tomorrow, Saturday, September 13th at 9 PM! You’ll have a chance to nominate yourself and your peers for many different positions. Positions on Honor Council, Student’s Council, JSAAPP and for Dorm Resource People will be open. This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in the inner workings of Haverford Student Government, after all, our student body is self governing on most all aspects.

When nominations open, they will remain open for 48 hours, if you are nominated or if you nominate yourself, you will have an opportunity to write a brief statement and submit a picture for your peers to vote off of. There is then another 48 hour period for voting, and if elected, you’ll start soon after at your new position.

So how about a bit of information about what positions you may run for or vote on?

Newly elected and currently serving Honor Council members will all meet up for an overnight retreat starting on the 19th of September, this is just the start of your term and an opportunity to get to know everyone and be oriented before you begin! The Honor Code is a huge pillar of our community, and members of Honor Council are trusted by the entire community to help upkeep more administrative aspects of it. This includes educating the community, facilitating community discussion, progressing and working on processes and procedures, running trials in case of a violation of the Code and much more! There will be four open Freshman representative positions, three open Sophomore representative positions, 2 open Junior representative positions and 2 open Senior representative positions!

Student’s Council is the basis of our self-governmental here at Haverford! StuCo, as it is often called, holds a variety of positions including a class representative for each year and an Officer of Campus Life, Academics, Athletics, the Arts as well as Multiculturalism. Student’s Council handles everything from budgeting for the hundreds of clubs and organizations on campus to running Plenary to handling relevant and present issues affecting the campus. This semester there will be voting on some class representative positions and an Officer position. You have an opportunity to get involved right at the centrality of our self governance here at Haverford by running for StuCo in these upcoming elections!

JSAAPP or the more wordy version, the Joint-Student Administration Alcohol Policy Panel, is the managing body around our alcohol policy and maintaining a safe and responsible environment on campus with alcohol and drug related concerns. They strive to educate the community and  ensure students adhere to the rules and regulations of the Alcohol Policy, of which promotes an environment in which student’s look out for their peers. This is a committee of elected students and two members of the administration! You have an opportunity to get involved in making this a safer and more educated campus on these relevant issues by running for JSAAPP.

Finally, Dorm Resource People are elected representatives from each dorm on campus. They are the point person on handling concerns related to specific dorms, they are also the people to go to when planning a party in a specific dorm. DRPs coordinate with the Director of Residential Life and Facilities to assure dorms are kept up and to handle all pressing issues! Want to step up for your dorm and do and seriously help out? Run for DRP in the upcoming elections!

That all said, good luck to those running and may it be a productive year for all of you and for all of these campus bodies!

Hey there ‘Fords! My name is Brittany and I am a sophomore and one of the newest Interns in the Student Activities Office. My favorite place on campus so far in my time as a black squirrel has been Nerd House! For those of you who don’t know, Nerd House is a Community House which means that is open to campus all day everyday. This year I, as well as 12 other equally awesome  people, reside in Nerd House and every weekend we host a variety of events on campus to supplement the concerts and social gatherings that are most commonly found. If you ever want to swing by and play Mario Kart or Apples to Apples, you want a place to study or you just want somebody with whom you can contemplate the meaning of life, just cross over the bridge behind the North Dorms and enter our Nerdom in Yarnall. We have got a lot of epic stuff lined up for the semester and here is the (tentative) rundown on a few of them:

Tomorrow, Saturday 13th @ 8pm: Nerd House Movie Night! There will be lots of popcorn and drinks and well, movies. Which movies? You’ll just have to come and find out.

Saturday 20th @ 8pm: Super Smash Brothers Tournament! Prepare yourself, things will get crazy and a victor will be crowned!

Saturday 27th @ 8pm: Game Show Night! Join us and star in your favorite Game Shows, the specific games are yet to be determined but if you have suggestions we’d love to hear them!

Saturday October 4th @ 8pm: 50′s Night! Conveniently lined-up with the annual screw-your-roomate event. Bring your date for the evening to a 50′s style diner and drive-in movie. There will be milkshakes!

New to Nerd House this year is our library, which features comic books, art books and even full length novels. Available, as always is our video game and board game collection. Also returning this year will be Humans vs. Zombies, word on the street is that this year’s event will be even better! How much better? If you join our mailing list, you’ll be the first to know! Speaking of e-mails, if you ever have any questions, suggestions, concerns or anything, contact us at hc-nerd-house-admin@googlegroups.com!

Hello person that just clicked on the link!

Pinwheel day happened and it was magical….and really cold… but still, it made my week. If you haven’t gotten a pinwheel by now, no worries. There are still decapitated pinwheels all over Founders Green, you could make a cool sculpture with them. I wonder if they reuse them for next year. Anyways Haverfest is right around the corner so make sure you have money in your bookstore accounts because they (people of Haverfest) will be selling AWESOME merchandise soon. VERY soon. #imgonnabuyEVERYTHING #negativebalanceinaccount

In other news, good luck to the seniors that are in the process of finishing their theses. The grass is greener on the other side… or so they say.

There aren’t that many events going on this weekend because everyone is too busy with work and stuff. BUT if you want to procrastinate/stealfreefood go check these events out!

Have a drama-free yet exciting Weekend~ <( 0_0 )>

It’s a Friday night- what are you up to?  Watching Netflix and eating Nutella with a spoon in bed?  Or is that just me…

 

IMG_7702

 

I didn’t think so!

 

This Friday, FAB is sponsoring an event- Hunger Over Nutella Games II- and you should all be there.  Let’s be real- we all do this in the privacy of our dorm rooms, so we might as well be a bit more social and do it with our friends.  It will be hosted at 7:30pm on HCA green this Friday, 4/25.  There will be a full Nutella bar with fresh fruit, crackers, and breads to wipe our fave condiment on, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be shown.

 

Be there, or have an empty stomach and not learn how to survive the impending apocalypse and/or dramatic political crisis that results in reverting back to ancient Grecian times and cheering while humans fight to the death in an arena.  Woo!!!

 

This Friday, 4/25. 7:30pm.  HCA green.  Nutella.  The Hunger Games.  JLaw.  JHutch.  Miley Cyrus’ Ex-Fiance.  Be there.

Anyone who loves food, and that means everyone, will be excited to know that this Sunday there will be food trucks on campus at one of events hosted by Haverford’s AIDS Service Network: Project Food Truck. You can take a week off from DC brunch and stop by founders from 11:30 to 2:30 to get food from Dadz Grilled Cheez and BrazBQ. 10% of all proceeds from the food trucks will be donated to the Mazzoni Center in Philadelphia which means that you can picnic on founders and give back to the fight against HIV and AIDS at the same time.

Don’t just stop there either. You will be able to learn more about the resources offered by Philadelphia HIV organizations and Haverford’s Morris Health Center. Come out for delicious Brazilian burgers and grilled cheese and for information that can help save lives and learn ways to give back.

For information on the food trucks check out these websites:

Dadz Grilled Cheez - dadzgrilledcheez.wix.com/dadzgrilledcheez

Hey Hey Hey!

Every night I dream that I’m gonna wake up and walk into a field of colorful pinwheels… but this weather is ruining EVERYTHING. Shout-out to everyone that put their winter coats in storage and then had to take them out because of the inconsistent weather.

In other news, the end is so close yet so far away. I don’t know if I’ll make it to the end but on the plus side… 2 more weeks till Haverfest!!! Anyways I’m too tired and stressed to make more cheesy remarks so here are the things that are going on this weekend (although you should be inside doing HOMEWORK….jk #procrastinate #tilltheend)
