Room to Read

by Josephine Sittenfeld '02

After a gloriously beautiful weekend in May, in which the university’s 19th president was named and houseparties rocked the Street, reading period began. On Monday, May 7, Steve Bernemen ’02 and Elyse Kovalsky ’03 plugged in their laptops at Firestone Library’s recently renovated Trustee Reading Room to begin the semester’s final study stretch. Bernemen was pounding out his junior paper on after-school programs for at-risk youth in Philadelphia, while Kovalsky was busy finishing up an art history paper on realism.
