Since 2011 College Communications has produced a unique homepage each weekday to spotlight the rich diversity of Haverford's academic programming, extracurricular offerings, campus culture, and community members' accomplishments.
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.
"The continued success of Haverford students in obtaining Fulbright awards speaks to their extraordinary blend of intellectual curiosity and social vision. As Fulbright Scholars, they make important contributions to communities of learning throughout the world, brilliantly embodying the College's commitment to cultivating global citizens." — President Kim Benston.
For students looking to forge close connections around shared interests, Haverford offers specialinterest housing choices, such as La Casa Hispánica (for students actively engaged in organizing programs concerned with the cultures and civilizations of the Spanish-speaking world); Cadbury House (for those seeking quiet-study and alcohol- and drug-free living); and Nerd House (for gaming, tech, fantasy, anime, and science aficionados).
