I am pleased to extend a personal invitation to visit Haverford College during Family & Friends Weekend, Friday through Sunday, October 26–28, 2012. As you can see from the schedule, we'll be hosting events that touch upon all aspects of the Haverford experience. Though you are of course welcome to attend all of these offerings, feel free to select what is most appealing and convenient. While Family & Friends Weekend is an opportunity for parents, grandparents, siblings and friends to learn more about the College community, we realize it is, first and foremost, a chance to spend time with your own Ford!
You may be particularly interested in our session with the directors of our three Centers for Interdisciplinary Learning. The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship (CPGC), the John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities (HCAH) and the Marian E. Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center (KINSC) are playing an increasingly large role in the academic program here at Haverford. Not only do they provide connective tissue within and across formal academic disciplines, they are a source of considerable funding for student and faculty research. I cannot overstate their importance or their impact: Of the 291 students who graduated in the Class of 2011, more than 80 engaged in Center-sponsored work that directly informed their senior thesis. As you may know, this capstone project is central to our mission, and having that degree of Center participation in such a vital part of the Haverford experience makes clear the value we place on the Centers. It's enough to make you wish you could be 18 again and attend Haverford for this reason alone! Thank you for taking the time to browse the schedule. On behalf of the entire Haverford community, I look forward to welcoming you to campus for this very special weekend.
