Students at Bryn Mawr and Haverford embrace very demanding standards in and out of the classroom. The bi-college culture assumes a commitment to excellence. Both colleges maintain an Honor Code requiring all students to take full responsibility for the integrity of their rigorous academic pursuits, the development and management of student organizations, government, and social life. The community impresses upon its members principles of mutual respect, self-responsibility, and personal integrity in a climate that encourages and supports each student to raise the bar higher.

Haverford College, co-educational since 1980, enrolls 1,170. The bi-college undergraduate population is represented by approximately 75% women and 25% men.
