Squirrel with Magnifying glass


Have-A-Look, a program designed for students from backgrounds historically underrepresented in higher education, offers the opportunity to become acquainted with the academic and social opportunities at Haverford.

October 3-5, 2021

Have-A-Look will be held virtually this fall. Even in a virtual space, we know that sustained engagement with one another will help build community and give you the richest sense of what it would be like to be a member of the Haverford community.

Additionally, you will have the option to be considered for an in-person campus overnight visit that would take place several weeks after the virtual Have-A-Look program. Participating students will travel to Haverford on Sunday, October 24, and depart on Tuesday, October 26.

How it Works

During the virtual program, participants will have the opportunity to interact with faculty and administrators, learn about diversity and inclusion on campus, and explore Haverford further. You will get the chance to engage in open dialogue with current Haverford students and develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for how we choose to steward our community at Haverford.

All Have-A-Look participants will be able to complete an admission interview as a part of the program.


Priority Deadline for Overnight Visits: September 7
Standard Deadline: September 20


This program is for students from backgrounds historically underrepresented in higher education, including students who identify as BIPOC, first generation to college, and/or low-income. Interested high school seniors (U.S. Citizens, Permanent Residents, and undocumented/DACA students living in the United States) are welcome to apply.

Space is limited for the in-person overnight visit so please submit your application by the priority deadline of September 7 if you would like to be considered for this opportunity.

Please allow yourself at least 35 minutes to complete this application, which will ask you to answer two supplemental questions and reflect on your interest in Haverford.

Overnight Visits

Please Note: Due to limited capacity for overnight guest visits during the pandemic, Haverford will not be able to host all HAL participants for the in-person program in Fall 2021. We strongly encourage you to apply by September 7 if you are interested in the overnight visit and are planning to be fully vaccinated by October 10. We are also committed to working with you to support your ability to attend Have-A-Look, including need-based travel scholarships for those considering the in-person opportunity.

In the event that you do not participate in the overnight visit this fall, all HAL participants who are admitted to Haverford will be invited to the in-person spring Fly-in Squirrels (FIS) program. Haverford will provide need-based travel scholarships for FIS 2022 participants.

Before indicating on the HAL application your interest in an overnight stay this fall, please be sure that you have permission from your parent or guardian and your school to travel to Philadelphia for this opportunity. If your airline tickets are booked and you cannot attend, you may be responsible for the cost of your ticket.
