Belated Halloween

Halloween and Lantern Night always seem to piggyback each other at the Mawr. My freshman year Lantern Night even fell on Halloween proper for an especially memorable evening. This year it was a double-weekend affair with plenty of on campus and TriCo gatherings. One of the more low-key festivities I partook in was a pumpkin carving party at a friend’s apartment. The vast majority of students opt to live in the dorms (I mean, who doesn’t want to live in a castle?!), but there are also opportunities for students to rent apartments independently or through the college. This specific apartment is quite literally across the street from my dorm, providing a nice on-campus/off-campus balance. Plenty of delicious snacks were served and we watched Hocus Pocus, a seasonal favorite of mine. One of the things about Bryn Mawr I cherish is finding balance between social and academic life – whether that means a concert in Philly, a night in with Netflix, or a party in a dorm. I love taking each week as it comes.

Speaking of Radnor…

Did I mention Radnor was in the New York Times? A photo I took of our dorm banner was submitted (unbeknownst to me!) and subsequently featured on their site. You can check it out here.

“Radnor What? Radnor Love!” is our dorm’s official cheer and is as popular as the anass, Bryn Mawr’s Greek cheer.

A Customs Week tradition, each Dorm Leadership Team creates a banner to represent the dorm and welcome new first-years. We wanted our banner to integrate our three hall themes: pop art, vintage Bryn Mawr, and superheros. We decided upon a reconstructed Rosie the Riveter that was devoid of skin tone or facial features to best represent the spectrum of Mawrters. I kvell whenever I see her in the foyer.
