On Wednesday, August 26, we officially welcomed the newest members of the Haverford community—the Class of 2019—to campus and kicked off Customs, the College’s first-year orientation program.
The political science major took a cue from her Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies concentration and her Chinese minor for her thesis on China’s Arab Spring intervention policies.
The biology major, who is interested in genetics, researched disease presentation in individuals with MYH9-related disorders using a fruit fly model.
The East Asian languages and cultures major synthesized her love of Chinese culture and economics in a thesis analyzing China’s economic system during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
The political science major used Arizona and Virginia as case studies for Medicaid expansion in her thesis and explored interest group coalition composition and lobbying strategy as potential approaches to overcoming organized opposition to policy implementation.
