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!
