  • Prime Minister, Sophomore Class Representative

     I am a sophomore from Southington, Connecticut with an intended major in Neuroscience and a minor in Religious Studies. In addition to being Ware's Prime Minister and a Sophomore representative on parliament, I am a student athletic trainer, a member of F&M’s Orchestra, a sister of Kappa Delta Sorority, and a member of .08. In my free time I like to go to spin classes, be outdoors, and hang out with friends. I’m looking forward to being a supportive and accessable leader of parliament this year, representing all members of Ware college house. I am excited for the possibilities that lie ahead as we make this year one to remember.

    I am from Long Island, NY, but FandM is my real home. I am a newly elected junior representative for Ware College House Parliament. This will be my third semester on parliament, but hopefully not my last. I am the Station Manger for WFNM 89.1 and love everything music and sports related. Being a HA and a representative on parliament, I really hope that I can make a positive difference in our Ware house community.

  • House Life Chair, Sophomore Class Representative

    Hello all! I am a Sophomore from Lower Merion, Pennsylvania, currently undecided about my major. Besides Parliament, I am involved with the men’s ultimate Frisbee team, F&M Players (the student run theater company), Chessmen (the all male a capella group), Phi Kappa Psi fraternity, and I am also a Ware HA. I enjoy playing football and basketball, though I do not play either one of them at F&M, as well as reading, playing video games, and just hanging out. I am excited to once again be serving as a member of Ware Parliament, and to be holding a chair position (House Life) this year. I hope that I can once again help to make Ware the best college house at F&M!

  • Senior Class Representative

    My name is Maxwell Polans and I am a Senior Class Representative for Ware College House! It is my second year on Parliament after having lived in Ware my freshmen and sophomore years. I am originally from Livingston, NJ. I am a History Major and Sociology Minor. In addition to Parliament, I am a Brother of the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity, an active member of the Ware Sustainability Committee, and the Senior Class Caucus. Last year, I was a co-Chair of the Ware Mentors program for the 2012-2013 year, loved being able to help the Class of 2016 get acclimated to the college house system as well as F&M in general through this exciting program! I had the opportunity to be a tour guide for F&M this past summer and it has given me great insight into how the college works. Ware has done a lot for me as a student, and as a senior on Parliament, I intend to help give the rest of Ware the same wonderful experiences that I have had in my first three years at F&M. I especially want to reach out to my fellow Warians of the Class of 2014 to help make our last year at college our best year!

    I am a senior on Ware Parliament and have been representing my class on and off since I was a first-year. I LOVE Ware, and in addition to my time spent on Parliament, I used to be an HA and the co-chair of the Ware Sustainability Committee. I am majoring in Government and Science, Technology, and Society, and minoring in Latin. Additionally, I am an Off-Campus Study Ambassador, the Development Chair for Colleges Against Cancer, Diplomatic Congress's OSPGD committee chair, and a sister of Kappa Delta Sorority. In my spare time, I like to run, spin, go to the gym... and basically do anything that involves releasing endorphins... and hanging out with friends, of course! I'm looking forward to serving on Parliament again and for another GREAT year in Ware.

  • Matt Haller Ware Parliament
  • Matt Haller '14
  • Senior Class Representative

    My name is Matt Haller and I am a Senior Representative to Ware Parliament. Over the past three years, I have held a number of positions on Parliament, including Social Chair, Deputy Prime Minister, and Prime Minister. Outside of Parliament, I have been an Orientation Planning Director of Ware College House, a Brother of the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity, and currently hold the position of Vice President of the Diplomatic Congress.

     
    Some of my fondest memories have been in Ware. From living on Second Rauch to Bagel Breakfasts in the Den, the House has been more than just a building for me. It has given me leadership experience and has helped situate me in Lancaster, as the House sponsors many trips to explore the best in what Lancaster has to offer. For example, we routinely host trips to Central Market, and have even gathered a group to go on a Lancaster Ghost Tour (one of the most exciting events of the year). All in all, I am very excited for my senior year on Parliament because of all the great things we get to work on and the amazing people I become close with.

  • Sophomore Class Representative

    I am currently a sophomore from Allentown, Pennsylvania. I am planning on declaring a double major of BOS and Philosophy this year. Aside from representing the sophomore class on Ware Parliament, I’m a member of the Varsity swim team, the F&M Chessmen, the F&M Players, and this year will be participating in the Harwood Leadership Seminar. On Parliament, I will be sitting in on the Social Committee, the House Life Committee, and the House Operations Committee. When my time isn’t used for my commitments, I enjoy hanging out with my friends, reading, singing, sleeping, and playing Pokemon. I can’t wait to help Ware Parliament go above and beyond the expectations we have for it, so let’s work together and see what we can make out of this year.
