Hi Sophomores! I am the assistant director of the OAR.  My goal is to assist you in making your college experience personally rewarding and meaningful. I am excited to get to know all of you and help you connect your interests and passions with opportunities. I was an English major in college and have two graduate degrees, one in literature and film and the second in education. I love reading, writing, cooking, playing outside, and listening to music (in no particular order). My door is always open and wxpn 88.5 is always playing on the radio. Never hesitate to stop by my office!

Hey folks! I am a sophomore that is undecided and is looking at Political Science as well as Growth and Structure of Cities as a potential major. I was born and raised in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, a comfortable suburb an hour outside of Los Angeles. I use he/him/his pronouns. At Haverford, I am the co-head of No Labels, managing editor for the Bi-Co News, Honor Code Orienteer, and play club soccer. In my free time, I really enjoy staying on top of current events, listening to music, and pushing myself to try/do new things!

Hi y’all! I’m a sophomore intending on majoring in sociology at Bryn Mawr with double concentrations in Peace, Justice, and Human Rights, and Latin American/Iberian Studies. I use she/her/hers pronouns. I’m from the beautiful city of Santa Ana, CA, the heart of Orange County in Southern California. If I’m not at the OAR, you can find me hard at work at the Coop either behind the grill or rucking at rugby. Outside of Haverford, I like taking spontaneous trips into Philly, making and eating meals inspired by home, taking Polaroids, and writing.

I’m a sophomore hopefully majoring in Political Science with a minor in Anthropology. I use he/him/his pronouns. I’m from the beautiful nation of Ghana, West Africa. On Campus I’m involved in quite a number groups and organizations. I serve on the Rufus Jones Leadership Board, the Academic Integrity Committee, the Black Students League and the New Spirit of Penn Gospel Choir. I also work in the OAR ☺ and the Writing Centre. When I’m not doing all that, I attempt every possible capacity to read, which many times doesn’t work out so I just sleep. I love to also explore Philly and travel to different places in and out of America.

Hi fellow sophomores! I am from Southern California. I am an intended Political Science Major with Education Minor. I hope to be able to have some impact in policy to change the education system in some way. I also hope, through the sophomore blog, to spread education relevant to my Sophomore class by addressing any issues or questions that the majority of you have.
