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.
Haverford’s new Visual Culture, Arts, and Media (VCAM) facility houses the College’s Interdisciplinary Minor in Visual Studies, the Haverford Innovations Program, and the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities and its new Philadelphia Area Creative Collaboratives initiative.
Best known for his predictions regarding a certain comet, Edmond Halley was an all-around genius who built the first diving bell, devised a working model of a magnetic compass, and pioneered actuarial science.
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 and 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.
