The Campus

Our campus has 200 acres of award-winning architecture and landscaping; more than 50 academic, athletic, and residential buildings; and a nationally recognized arboretum with 400 species of trees and shrubs, a 3.5-acre duck pond, gardens, and wooded areas.

The Haverford College Arboretum hosts a variety of events, such as the upcoming pumpkin-carving workshop. The resulting jack-o'-lanterns will be on display during the Fall Festival, where the public will vote on the best-carved pumpkin. Photo: Lev Greenstein '20.

“Industry and the Environment: Understanding Environmental Responses within the Textile Industry”
