Hey all--

I'm a Penn student looking at a Haverford class for the fall and wanted some insight. Anyone know anything about Terrence Johnson in the Religious Studies department? It looks like he's a visiting professor, so he probably hasn't taught there before.

Is it worth it to trek out to Haverford for a good class or should I just stick to my many options here at Penn?

Also, for Penn students-- how do I actually enroll in the class and take advantage of this Quaker Consortium we tout, but rarely utilize?

I hope for recruitment :-) [Mar. 19th, 2007|01:54 pm]

This community will only be worthwhile if we share cool events. I know from my sister that Bryn Mawr's accepted student days are coming up, as are Penn Previews, and that Haverford has some sort of laissez-faire attitude toward visiting, but that people will do it soon.

If you plan to visit Philadelphia proper with your families, and/or if people who've been accepted to multiple local schools stumble upon this community, I think we can provide helpful guidance. For example, I think families should visit Rittenhouse Square and/or Old City for dining. I know Farmicia is nice (15 S. 3rd St., just off Market Street - and conveniently there's a subway stop at 2nd and Market).

Neat idea for a community!

I'm Bryn Mawr '09, but I've been told on a few occasions that I am really secretly a Swarthmore student. This is mostly true socially-I can't help it that Bryn Mawr doesn't have contra dancing or people who appreciate my exceedingly geeky board games! Academically, however, I am (almost) 100% Bryn Mawr-I'm an anthropology major and pretty much in love with my department. Also, Bryn Mawr traditions are pretty much unbeatable.

Connections to other Quaker consortium schools:

*I've taken two Haverford classes so far, but they were both pretty miserable, to the point where I'm not feeling inclined to take anymore. Any Haverford people here who want to recommend a prof (preferably social science) who won't put me to sleep?

*I spent last fall singing with a group that rehearses at UPenn but isn't actually connected to the school. Didn't really like the music so much, but loved the area around the university. Fuh Wah tofu hoagies make my life complete-for any Penn people who've never had one, I suggest you do so ASAP. Even if you don't think you like tofu.

Hey guys, I thought this was really cool! My name is Vidya, I'm UPenn '11 (yay!!) in SEAS (School of Engineering and Applied Sciences). I'm really excited to be coming to Philly and being a part of the Consortium, especially because I have a bunch of people that I know that go/will be going to Bryn Mawr and Haverford as well.

Let's see if this community generates any interest whatsoever, but personally I'd love to hear more about the goings-on in the nearby yet mysterious TriCollege - especially now that my little sister is Bryn Mawr '11 and her boyfriend is Haverford '11. (I'm Penn '08.)

My name is Sharon, I'm from Maryland-near-DC, and I'm studying intellectual history and religion. I'm a big proponent of Philadelphia (um, its existence and its awesomeness), so I think you all should stop by more often. I should also visit your idyllic duck ponds and Hogwarts architecture.
