Welcome to FreshPress. Here you will find news, updates, and a fresh perspective on Haverford events and current national events.
We are a news organization created by 10 freshman for the Haverford student body. We hope to convey the attitudes and opinions and create a forum for discussion on everything from the most eligible bachelor to the No Loan policy to the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare). Keep coming back to check for upcoming events on campus, news articles and columns, and for a refreshing look at what your peers are thinking, doing and creating.
- To create a space that brings articles, commentaries, and opinions together in an accessible, original and captivating format.
- News, style, entertainment, sports, environment, general goings ons, food, creative writing and photography
One of the biggest differences between FreshPress and other news sources is not the content, but how we cover what’s going on and how our organization is run. This last part, how it will be run, is the most unique part about us. It’s all based on Quaker values—there is no editor-in-chief or hierarchy, everyone comes to consensus on content, mission and style. The system is wholly egalitarian inasmuch that we all create, we all write, we all edit. This allows every voice and every opinion to come together to offer new perspectives and a more engaging format for the news.
