Cheerleading—of the all-male variety—has a venerable history at the College. According to The Record of the Class of 1948, the cheerleading squad had six men and the group’s captain was also charged with emceeing pep rallies, as well as the “fireworks-bonfire extravaganza before the Swarthmore game.”

The Committee for Environmental Responsibility (CER) was created by the students, faculty, and staff of Haverford College, and founded on our socially responsible principles. CER sponsored the annual "Do It In The Dark" energy-saving competition, during which the campus saved 4,885 kWh overall, more than twice last year's total.
