Letter from the Haverford Quest Liaison
Remember that person who would always tell you that you are smart and beautiful (despite the fact that you are somewhat nerdy) and that you can do anything you set your mind to? Well look where you are now!
On behalf of Haverford College and our Quest Scholars Network, I, Jessica Feng, extend my warmest welcome to you. You are attending one of the best liberal arts schools in the country. Now that is something to be proud of. I'm sure we've all done our research about Haverford so I'll skip that part about us having a gazillion a cappella groups, both bunnies and foxes on campus, and trains that can take you to Philadelphia and New York City for as little as $1. And because we college students are such adamant golf fans, I'm sure we all know that the 2013 US Open took place in Haverford's backyard.
Instead of talking about how we're all on a first name basis with our professors, the bunnies on campus, or those silly Haverford traditions like swimming in the duck pond, I will talk about myself. I am super excited about being your Liaison! As a rising sophomore I still do not know what I am going to major in, but I will repeat what every other upperclassman has told me: "You still have time.” If you're reading this, make sure to slow down once in a while. No matter what stage you are at in life, remember that you still have time. So enjoy the college experience. Because those memories you make at Haverford will be with you forever and ever and ever. Customs, the Honor Code, black squirrels, and the Haver-everything is what makes Haverford special and I am so happy that you are part of our community.
As a network, we are a supportive group. Some of the most motivated and inspirational people are part of Quest so don’t be afraid to reach out and get to know one another.
Get ready for a year of social gatherings, volunteer events, and damage control/Jess freak out situations that will make awesome stories in the future. We are going to have a lot of fun - just you wait. I look forward to seeing the look on your face when you see a black squirrel (or fox or bunny) for the first time.
Sincerely and with much Questie love,
Jessica Feng, Haverford '16
