Beyond the Classroom

A Haverford student's education doesn't end with the academic year. This summer, as in years past, the three campus Centers—the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship, the John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities and the Marian E. Koshland Integrated Science Center—sponsored summer work, research and internships for almost 150 students. Whether they worked with children in Ghana, interned in Washington, D.C., at the Library of Congress, or conducted scientific research here on campus, students broadened their horizons and learned valuable new skills that will inform their classroom work when they return to campus in the fall.

Below is a list—by no means an exhaustive one—of articles that feature our students' diverse summer work. Many students maintained blogs about their experiences, which are listed below.
