Fords enjoy myriad traditional events such as the Collection speaker series; Pinwheel Day; the annual weekend throwdown at the end of the year called Haverfest; and, most importantly, Fall and Spring Plenary.
Haverford attracts intellectually curious, independent learners who value honesty, collaboration, and above all, new ways of seeing and improving the world.
As you perform real-world research and immerse yourself in hands-on learning, you'll work side-by-side with professors who are at the top of their fields.
Our mascot—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.
While the College’s commitment to low-income and first-generation students finds deepest expression in our financial aid policy, there are often needs that are felt in the regular flow of a student’s life which fall outside the parameters of overall financial aid packages. Our LIFTFAR program aims to help fill these gaps.
