Strawbridge Observatory

As a student co-coordinator for Haverford’s public observing program, I work to bring community members to Strawbridge Observatory to view the night sky…these events allow us to share our academic experience at Haverford with the greater community. I got to show a four year-old Saturn for the first time, with its rings and all.” – Maya Barlev ’12
