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.

Our arboretum renewal program includes planting trees, such as these saplings, along the Nature Trail. The goal is to help restore the natural four-layer structure of the Eastern Deciduous Forest, which includes large canopy and understory species. Photo: Patrick Montero.

What They Learned: Gabriel Braun '19

Chemistry major, biochemistry concentrator, and French and Francophone studies minor Gabriel Braun ’19 built his thesis on the work of nearly a generation of Haverford chemistry students. He had been working in Professor of Chemistry Karin Åkerfeldt’s lab since the summer after his sophomore year, and his thesis work was a continuation of past theses, including investigations conducted by at least five previous lab members.

Braun will spend next year at Lund University in Sweden, conducting research with his longtime collaborator Sara Linse under a Fulbright Research Award. "What They Learned" is a blog series exploring the thesis work of recent graduates.
