Community Housing

For students looking to forge close connections around shared interests, Haverford offers special interest 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).

Physics & Astronomy

All physics and astronomy majors have the opportunity to perform meaningful and potentially publishable research, working closely with our faculty in fields such as quantum computing, observational cosmology, nonlinear physics and fluid dynamics, extragalactic astronomy, biophysics, and nanoscience.

Professor Andrea Lommen took six Bi-Co students to the NANOGrav meeting at West Virginia's Green Bank Telescope, which, at 100-meters across, is the largest steerable structure in the world.

Plenary

Plenary is a critical mechanism for student self-governance at Haverford College. Students gather to raise, discuss, and debate issues on campus. Resolutions passed by the Students’ Association are viewed as the will of the body, and Students’ Council is then tasked with the carrying out and upholding of any changes or initiatives.

KINSC Scientific Imaging Contest

The KINSC Scientific Imaging Contest is an annual competition for student-submitted images from experiments or simulations that are scientifically intriguing as well as aesthetically pleasing. Judging is based on both the quality of the image and the explanation of the underlying science.

Yixuan Zhou '20 won third place in the 2018 contest for "Fringes in a photoelastic particle when it was squeezed diametrically," a photo of research advised by Assistant Professor Ted Brzinski.
