Julia Coletti ’21
Julia is a senior (yikes!) at Haverford majoring in Political Science and minoring in Visual Studies. Julia likes to spend most time in motion; often running (around the track or late to class) and usually making (films, doodles, soups, messes). On the boards of James House and SLOP (Student-Led Online Programming), Julia loves working on projects with other students and is ready to chat about and hype up your dreams at any time! Her fourth year working at the Hurford Center, Julia misses office chit-chat and baked goods deeply, and hopes to see everyone outside of virtual reality soon enough.
Noorie Chowdhury '21
Noorie is a junior from Mumbai, India, majoring in philosophy, politics and economics. This is her third year working at HCAH! Her hobbies include engaging in social work, (closet) writing, finding hidden hangout spots in Philly, and going to as many of HCAH’s events as she can squeeze in. She serves as Co-Vice President of Student’s Council and as a board-member of the International Student’s Center. If you ever need an overenthusiastic, spontaneous travel/rant buddy, go find her!
Hedy Goodman '23
Hedy is a sophomore from Westerly, Rhode Island who plans to begin her candidacy for the 4+1 program with the University of Pennsylvania's School of Engineering and Applied Science. A hopeful German minor, her ever-growing list of travel destinations begins with Vienna and Zürich but has no end in sight. At present, she's often found out running with her fellow cross country/track & field teammates (go Bees!), playing the guitar very poorly in reminiscence of FUCS shows, or peering through one of Strawbridge Observatory's telescopes on a clear Friday night- her favorite Haverford tradition. Alongside her efforts in the student-run food initiative ETHOS or the Genders Underrepresented in Physics & Astro (GUAP) on-campus discussion, Hedy hopes to address Haverford's equitability and accessibility for all students, especially educational resources in the fine arts, even amidst a pandemic.
Shayleah Jenkins ’22
Hailing from Boise, Idaho, Shayleah is a sophomore expecting to major in English and minor in Spanish. She is a Questbridge and Chesick scholar and enjoys exploring the east coast, though she still thinks the west coast is better. When she graduates, she wants to own a bull terrier, a raccoon, and drive a mini cooper. On campus, she can be found postering for the Hurford Center or anywhere where there is free food. This will be her second year working for the Center.

Ooh and again he is super friendly!!
