Where They're Headed
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.
For Matthew Ridley '19, a summer internship at the Philadelphia Museum of Art is another notch in his belt of archival experience. Funded by the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, the history major is working in the museum’s conservation department through August.
