Clubs & Organizations
When it’s time to put your studies on hold, there’s so much fun to be had at Haverford. Here, you have just as much freedom to fill your recreational calendar as you do to forge your own academic path. Living so close to so many peers makes it easy to build on shared interests, take impromptu trips to Philadelphia, join one of more than 145 clubs, and meet tons of new people.
What's for lunch?
Whether at a main meal, late-night study break, or spur-of-the-moment meetup, you’ll find delicious, healthy, sustainable food to fuel your interactions.
#1 highlight of finals week? Midnight Breakfast, when deans and the President serve students their fave breakfast fare!
Who Run the World? Squirrels!
We’re Fords. So what’s with the Black Squirrel? Our mascot is the Black Squirrel, whose real-life cousins are longtime denizens of our arboretum campus. They seldom stay still long enough for a photo op.

Squirrels are a symbol of feisty, energetic determination!
