In January, our very own president, Kim Cassidy, attended the White House’s Summit on College Access. This week, the White House announces another summit on college access for December 6th of this year in hopes to build on the work made at the previous summit. The focus for this summit will be on “building sustainable collaborations in communities with strong K-12 and higher education partnerships to encourage college going, and supporting colleges to work together to dramatically improve persistence and increase college completion, especially for first generation, low-income, and underrepresented students.”

As Bryn Mawr continues to be leaders in college access, the process should not only be on admitting underrepresented students, but building community cohorts that will guide and support our students seeing them through to graduation.

The TechGirls are so great. They came to Tumblr HQ yesterday and our engineers answered their questions about Tumblr, about tech, about being a woman in tech, about the future of tech, oh, all kinds of stuff. “Totally the happiest panel ever,” according to alittlespace.

Hollywood icon Lauren Bacall spoke to Terry Gross in 1994 about her deep voice, falling in love with Humphrey Bogart and what became known as “the look,” when she’d have her chin down, looking up:

I was terribly nervous during To Have and Have Not, it was quite a terrifying experience for me. And I was this kid and I was scared to death of all these pros around me and really had almost no experience on the stage and certainly none in film.I shook when [Director Howard] Hawks said “action” and there was quiet on the set and I’d start to walk into a scene. And then my head would shake and my hands would shake and I discovered if I kept my head down and looked up my head would not shake, so I started to do that when I could, when it was appropriate in a scene.And that’s how “the look” came about, but it wasn’t that I had planned to have a look — it was just a way to keep my head steady. It was very important! It’s terrible to look at another actor when your head is shaking.

Bacall passed away Tuesday at the age of 89. 

in 2006 Lauren Bacall accepts the Bryn Mawr College Katherine Hepburn Award which recognizes women whose lives, work, and contributions embody the intelligence, drive, and independence of the four-time-Oscar-winning actress. Couldn’t help but reblog this in memory of her and her life as it reflects a bit of Bryn Mawr.

Some of our excited admissions counselors recently came back from a wonderful time at the PACAC Summer Institute hosted at Bucknell University, PA. They are coming back not only with great memories, but also prepared for the new applicants who will be applying this fall to Bryn Mawr College!

We will be the leaders in the room, but we are not there purely to impart our knowledge and “teach,” but also to learn and explore with the younger students.

This was taken from the syllabus of one of the most recent Praxis programs at Bryn Mawr College. If you haven’t heard, Praxis is just one part of Bryn Mawr’s drive to get students hands on experience through service learning or experiential learning. Read through this syllabus and let us know what you think!
