Mans

Paula Mans '08 wins Fulbright for study in Brazil
Mans, a Spanish major who plans to pursue a Ph.D. in anthropology or African-American studies, will spend her Fulbright year researching a community-based supplementary education program for girls in a favela—the Brazilian equivalent of a shantytown—in Salvador. The program Mans will study, called Bahia Street, supplements the girls' education in public schools with tutoring in all basic subjects including math, science and reading. In addition to this standard curriculum, Bahia Street provides programs in self-defense, health care, sexual education, art therapy, Afro-Brazilian culture, and a series of programs that focus on issues of violence and inequality.

BMC to test emergency siren next Wednesday
If you plan to be on the Bryn Mawr campus next Wednesday, April  30, at about 3 p.m., be prepared: the College plans to test its recently acquired emergency siren, which is mounted atop Canaday Library.
