Study Abroad Photo Contest

“As a queer person of color, I would say that my study abroad experience not only enabled me to engage with and consider my identity within the freedom of another culture, but the time spent away from America also helped me to contextualize previous experiences and believe in a wider, more pronounced version of global citizenship.” – Matthew Ridley '19

Each year more than 130 Haverford students take advantage of the opportunity to study abroad.

The 2018 Study Abroad Photo Contest third-place winner in the Cultural Encounters category: Callie Kennedy '18, "Sunny Morning in Cholula," taken in Cholula, Mexico.

Then & Now: Founders Great Hall Now

Founders Great Hall

With Magill Library under renovation, Founders Great Hall has been put to temporary use (along with a number of other spaces on campus) as a library stand-in, complete with study carrels and the relocated staff of research librarians. Upstairs, the Common Room is now a spot for quiet reading.

Then & Now: Founders Great Hall Then

Founders Great Hall

Founders Great Hall served as the College’s dining hall for more than 60 years, until the Dining Center opened in 1969. Since then, the majestic room has been a busy special events space, hosting invited speakers, student dances, alumni weddings, and concerts.

Come back tomorrow to see the Great Hall "Now."
