Moved to Run

Haverford alumni are stepping up as first-time political candidates, boldly challenging longtime incumbents and the political “machine” in their communities. For all, the decision to seek office is an effort to live their values. 

Read Moved to Run in the Spring/Summer 2018 issue of Haverford Magazine.

Summer Centered: Claire Burdick ’19

Claire Burdick ’19, a psychology major concentrating in peace, justice, and human rights, is interning at the St. Louis Zoo this summer.

"This internship will help me achieve my future goals because it is giving me a taste of what doing animal behavior research for a job is really like,” Burdick says, “and is going to help me build the foundation of skills I'll need if I end up working in the animal-behavior field.”

Burdick will intern at the St. Louis Zoo thanks to the Center for Career and Professional Advising’s Liberal Arts in the Workplace grants. "Summer Centered" is a series exploring our students' Center-funded summer work.

The Campus

Our campus has 200 acres of award-winning architecture and landscaping; more than 50 academic, athletic, and residential buildings; and a nationally recognized arboretum with 400 species of trees and shrubs, a 3.5-acre duck pond, gardens, and wooded areas.

Summer Centered: Nick Sweeney ’19

Astrophysics major Nick Sweeney ’19 is using mathematical models to replicate the ways galaxies clumped together in the early universe—and, hopefully, to learn more about the nature of dark matter as a result. 

Sweeney will work alongside Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy Daniel Grin and use novel dark matter models to describe the structure of the early universe thanks to funding from the Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center. "Summer Centered" is a series exploring our students' Center-funded summer work. Photo by Alexandra Iglesia '21.
