so i don't think i've officially introduced myself here yet and that seems to be the latest trend.

I'm Naomi and I'm currently a freshman. I live in a two room double in rock which is one of the smallest freshman doubles I have seen here, but yet it is quite spacious compared to what you'd find at most other schools. I applied fall ED last year and have pretty much been madly in love with bryn mawr since i first toured spring break of my junior year of high school. I'm a math major and possibly minoring in geology. I'm hoping to do the AB/MA program meaning I'll graduate in four years with both a bachelors and a masters in math. awesome opportunity if you have transferrable AP or IB credits. Extracurricularly I am in Lavender's Blue (the oldies a cappella group) and JSU (Jewish Student Union). Ask me about anything related to any of this. I love talking about bryn mawr because it's just that fabulous. Also, I've taken classes at Haverford and know people at both Haverford and Swat, so if you have questions about tri-co relations and/or the transportation system, i'm pretty knowledgable in that area as well. I'm going to be on a panel at open campus days, so maybe i'll see some of you there. also, Lavender's Blue is performing that night for all of you at 9. please come because we're premiering a song that i arranged and have the solo in so it should be a fun time. if i don't see you then, i look forward to seeing you in the fall. have a great rest of senior year!

Thank you. If you're interested in singing at all, you should definitely try out for Lavender's Blue. We sing only oldies, although we currently have a debate going in the group concerning what is to be defined as oldies. is it a genre or a time period or both? We're real chill and we have a lot of fun. We're only losing one senior next year, but because we have so many juniors we're definitely going to be letting in more than one person next year to balance out the classes.

JSU is pretty cool, although it annoys me how many jews there are on campus who never do anything with us and so it sometimes feels like there aren't a lot of jews on campus, but there actually are. I live about 45 minutes from campus, so this year i was able to go home for both seders, but i have friends who went to the seders on campus and really enjoyed them. For all of the holidays JSU's main goal is to make you feel comfortable away from home. We went to a local synagogue to hear the megillah read at Purim and they had a latke-hamentaschen debate at hanukah time. there are also several social events which are a lot of fun. We went to Longwood Gardens in the winter when they had the gorgeous light displays out (i know they're really for christmas, but who doesn't need light in winter time?), we have mini birthday parties each month for whoever's birthday was in that month, and we had a party at the end of passover with pizza and other such chametzy type stuff.

I can't really tell you much about the AB/MA program because I haven't yet gotten to the graduate level classes yet, but i've talked to seniors in the program and they say it is totally doable.

I love oldies! Maybe I will audition for Lavender's Blue. I definitely want to continue doing a cappella, as my high school group was so much fun.
I am so relieved to hear that the JSU is somewhat active! It's still going to be a culture shock leaving a Jewish day school, but I will have some silly-awesome Jewishness to fall back on.
Thanks for the information!
