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.

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.

The Black Squirrel has a genetic adaptation that gives it a bold, black coat. Join our distinctive community and stand out from the pack with your fellow Haverfordians.
* not a real statistic
Squirrels are a symbol of feisty, energetic determination!
When it really comes down to it, everyone’s a “creative.”
Artistic expression and appreciation lead to new viewpoints—viewpoints that you’ll find yourself applying to your life inside and outside your classes and laboratories. Even if you don’t take a class in the arts, our wide array of student-generated programming, clubs, and exhibitions will ensure that you see the world in a new light.
