Visiting

Located just outside Philadelphia, Haverford is an ideal place to live and learn.

The murder of Walter Wallace, Jr. is being reported nationally, and has deeply impacted our entire community. The Admission Office stands in solidarity with all members of the Haverford community, and particularly Haverford students, in grieving this needless and tragic loss.

In response to an initial email sent by President Raymond and Dean Bylander, and frustration with the College's inadequate response, students have organized a strike. We are fully supportive and understanding of this action by students. In an effort to support the student strike, we have cancelled upcoming tours and admission-related events.

While this is a challenging chapter in a difficult year, we are buoyed by the consistent commitment of our students to use their voices to demand a better Haverford now and for the students who come after them.

Take the opportunity to experience a Haverford classroom via Zoom! Below is a sampling of Haverford courses currently being taught in ways that are conducive to visitors.

If you would like to visit a class:

  1. Please be sure to email the professor in advance. While each of these faculty is open to visitors, there may be days the class isn't being held or there may be other reasons why visiting doesn't work on a specific day. The professor will provide the zoom link for the class once they hear from you.
  2. Please be sure to come into the meeting at the very beginning of the class. If you are not able to stay for the whole class, please make sure that this is okay with the professor.
