Going abroad to study AND intern

Posted on April 30, 2014 by Abbie Branchflower '14.

Some of you may know me as “that random girl whose blog we got emails about last spring semester.” Or, maybe you don’t really remember that, but you vaguely recognize my name. I wrote my blog about my experience with the Hartpury College Exchange Program.

Throughout the past year, I have had the opportunity to lead the A-Day team in making the decisions to hold a successful A-Day weekend. We faced challenges such as working through communication difficulties and working with novice committee members.

My DelVal Story

Posted on April 15, 2014 by Sarah Stout '14.

Growing up in Doylestown, I never thought DelVal would be my dream school. I never thought I would look forward to class or club meetings or spending time on campus. I never imagined I would make so many friends from different places who were driven to my hometown for their education—but I did. I have experienced and seen more during my time at DelVal than I ever anticipated. From traveling abroad with professors, to attending international conferences, to starting a new club on campus; each experience has shifted the way I look at the world and how I see my role in the big picture.

Ways you can lead every day

Posted on April 8, 2014 by Dr. April Vari, vice president for student affairs.

The other day as I was walking across the DelVal campus, I did something -- or more accurately didn't do something -- that I later regretted.  I walked by an empty beer can on the ground and I didn't pick it up to throw it into the nearest recycling bin.  I was in a hurry, and to be honest I didn't know where that can had come from and just wasn't keen on the idea of picking it up.

Not only were we facing the stress and anxiety that comes with entering our last semester, but there was a rather large structure that stirred curiosity in every student at DelVal, the Life Sciences Building. This semester was full of change for everyone on campus, but for us seniors all we wanted was a chance to take a class in this new building, because well, it's our last chance.
