At 8:00 this morning, I’ll be starting an intermediate Spanish class. After four years of having to drag myself out of bed on this day of the year, I seem to have been conditioned to report to a classroom despite my supposed freedom from Swarthmore. For the first time in four years, I didn’t spend […]
I was fortunate to have many members of my family travel to Swarthmore for graduation. Student Romane Paul, molecular biologist Bonnie Bassler, Quaker activist and organizer John Braxton, Morehouse College President Robert Franklin, and actor Stephen Lang delivered meaningful, thought-provoking, humorous, and reflective speeches.

After four years, our last hurrah at Swarthmore came in the form of Senior Week. Highlights included a night of bowling at Northbowl, our last bonfire in the Crum Woods, trips to Tom Jones, fireworks, Star Wars viewings, and tours of the college belltower: Generated by Facebook Photo Fetcher

It’s incredible that a month has already passed since Spring Break. I traveled to the UK to visit a friend studying systems engineering at Oxford. I was able to see London, Oxford, Bath, and Sheffield. Highlights included the London Transport Museum, riding the DLR, drinking the spring water at Bath, rooting for Oxford in a […]

Much has happened in the last couple of months, so […]

The Facilities Department apparently got a number of sympathetic emails from professors expressing disgust for the disrespectful students who dug a giant hole in Parrish Beach.

With the record snow we’ve had this year, some friends and I decided to build an igloo in Wharton Courtyard.
I spent a day last week walking through University City, West Philadelphia, Fairmount Park, North Philadelphia, and South Street. Some pictures:
