On Saturday March 18, Haverford’s Center for Peace and Global Citizenship hosted their annual Public Policy Forum. The day-long event is a space for students to interact with Bi-Co alum working in various public policy fields ranging from education, law, foreign policy, to health and environment. I attended last year’s forum and was happy to return again this year.
On Monday, writer Rachel Monroe came to Haverford to talk to students about being a freelance writer, volunteer firefighter, and occasional radio host based in Marfa, TX. She writes about things like crime, books, border issues, and utopian experiments for the New York Times, New York, Oxford American, Texas Monthly, Guardian, The Believer, the Los Angeles Review of Books, The Rumpus, and host of other places.
