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 25—October 29, 2020

The program will be held nightly over Zoom from Sunday, October 25 to Thursday, October 29, 2020 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. EDT. Ideally, all participants will be able to attend the full program.

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. But we also understand that there may be conflicts across the several days of the program. We are committed to working with you to support your ability to attend Have-A-Look. Please know that Day 5 of the program—which will focus on support in the application process—is optional.

How it Works

The program will consist of larger panels and smaller discussion-based cohorts. Each day will be split into two sections with the first hour consisting of a panel of various students, faculty, and administrators. Panels will focus on topics ranging from academics at Haverford to the admission process. The second hour each night will be student-run and mimic our Customs Program at Haverford. You will have the opportunity 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 participants will be able to complete an admission interview the week after Have-A-Look programming. If your schedule does not permit you to interview at that time, you will have priority to interview on a date that works best for you.


This virtual fall 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. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with faculty and administrators, learn about diversity and inclusion on campus, connect with current Haverfordians, and explore the Haverford community.
