Musical Offering

The Presser Foundation of Haverford has given $25,000 to the Music Department toward its $147,000 multi-year plan to replace and upgrade the College’s musical instrument collection.

All instruments still playable will be donated to Broughal Middle School in South Bethlehem, where Joyce Dawley ’96 is band director.


The incoming freshman class is reading The Hemingway Book Club of Kosovo by Paula Huntley. It’s an account of the year she spent teaching English in the ravaged province and a tribute to the remarkable resilience of its people. You can pick up a copy in the Bookstore. Huntley will talk to students at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, August 31, in Foy Hall.
