Visit a Class

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.
  3. Feel free to participate in the class as you are able! Our faculty and students are warm and welcoming, and will be excited you are there.
