Stop by and say hello!

Haverford College has an open campus, and we welcome alumni, families, and friends to visit. We are grateful to be a part of a campus community that is the oldest planned college landscape in the country. Our meticulously maintained 200 acres contain a nature trail, a pinetum, flower gardens, and black squirrels (who also tweet). The quiet beauty of the campus reflects a landscape design created in 1834 by the English gardener William Carvill. Walk the 2.25-mile trail, feed the ducks at the Duck Pond, and admire some of the campus's more than 2,500 labeled trees, including: the Penn Treaty Elm, a descendant of the American Elm under which William Penn signed his treaty with the Native Americans in 1682; several of Carvill's historic trees; collections of oaks, beeches, and maples; and 19 state-champion trees. While on campus, stop by the bookstore, grab a snack at the Coop, and be sure to pop into Founders and say hello to the Alumni and Parent Relations staff.

The Strawbridge Observatory at Haverford College houses 12-inch and 16-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes which are actively used by students in Haverford astronomy classes.
