In Da Clubs
When it’s time to put your studies on hold, there’s so much fun to be had at Haverford. Here, you have just as much freedom to fill your recreational calendar as you do to forge your own academic path. Living so close to so many peers makes it easy to build on shared interests, take impromptu trips to Philadelphia, join one of more than 145 clubs, and meet tons of new people.
