“Hanging with Harry” 

The current CHC Quidditch Team of the Harry Potter Weekend 2014 (with Sister Carol Jean Vale) holding the trophy

CHC received some welcome publicity from an unexpected quarter with the publication of an essay by Mark Casasanto, whose daughter, Julianna, is a freshman.

Casasanto writes about their visit to Chestnut Hill College in the fall of 2013 as his daughter was making her decision on what schools to apply to. He said they paid close attention to academics as well as extracurricular activities and clubs, school traditions and local landscapes.

They found interesting offerings around the region. And then they visited Chestnut Hill College and discovered a tradition they couldn’t forget. Read all about their experience in Philadelphia RowHome Magazine.
