International Students

An increasing number of international students are being drawn to Haverford by the promise of intellectual exploration, academic rigor, and close-knit community. Once here, they must also contend with unfamiliar food, strange American social customs, and a climate that may be outside their comfort zone. A robust support program for students from abroad eases intercultural adjustment.

Senior Thesis - Rory Kennison ’18
