One of Haverford College's unique traditions is the Customs Program, our year-long first-year orientation. Over the course of this year, nearly 150 upperclass students are working to support, in a multiplicity of ways, 357 first-year students in their transition to college life.

Managing Burning Man

Dominique Debucquoy-Dodley ‘11 is communications manager for Burning Man Project, the San Francisco-based nonprofit that runs the annual event and spearheads many other cultural, educational, civic, and artistic programs year-round. He oversees communication efforts related to all of the organization’s initiatives, but devotes the most energy to Burning Man itself, managing components such as press admission, social media channels, and volunteer groups.

Academic Partnerships

Through the Tri-College Consortium, Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Swarthmore students take classes at all three schools and frequently collaborate on extracurricular activities.

The new Tri-Co Philly Program is a semester-long, non-residential program that provides students both curricular and co-curricular activities in nearby Philadelphia.

The urban setting of Philadelphia provides a sense of place to enhance the classroom experience, helping students learn firsthand how the material in the courses is informed by the environment around them.

Moved to Run

Haverford alumni are stepping up as first-time political candidates, boldly challenging longtime incumbents and the political “machine” in their communities. For all, the decision to seek office is an effort to live their values. 

Read Moved to Run in the Spring/Summer 2018 issue of Haverford Magazine.
