The Office of Academic Resources (OAR) offers students an array of services designed to enhance their academic potential and supplement the many academic and enrichment opportunities already available to them through their course work and research at Haverford College.

Join Us for the OAR's Open House

Our Fall 2014 Open House will be held Monday, October 27th, 4:00-6:30 p.m. Come mingle with our staff and learn about the various resources and study spaces in our office! Cider & doughnuts from Linvilla Orchards will be provided!

Expanded Hours for Individual Consultations

Planning on graduate school? Learn how to prep for the GRE!

The OAR and CCPA are conducting a joint workshop to discuss the basics of the GRE, its role in the admissions process, and the (FREE) resources Haverford provides to help you prepare for the test.
