Ford Games - What It Takes

On the softball field, Julia Blake '19 has been a team captain since she was a junior, is a star player at second base, and has increased her batting average in each of her first three seasons at Haverford. On campus, the political science major worked her way up to being Students’ Council co-president in 2018.

How did Blake balance being the best leader she could be for both her teammates and student body constituents? Read "What It Takes" in the Winter 2019 issue of Haverford Magazine

The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship

The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship grew out of faculty and student interests that emerged in the late 1990s. Since then, the Center has developed and expanded into a flourishing nexus of social responsibility, civic engagement, and global peace work, both on campus and in the greater community.

Office Hour – Suzanne Amador Kane

The varied research interests of Professor of Physics and Astronomy Suzanne Amador Kane delve into soft condensed matter physics and statistical physics, but it is her work in biological physics—which uses the tools of physics to better understand living organisms—that has attracted widespread attention in recent years.

Read Office Hour in the Fall 2018 issue of Haverford Magazine.

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.
