Program 1

Private Undergraduate Liberal Arts College

Haverford is
one of America's leading liberal arts colleges, a close-knit intellectual
community that combines the Quaker values of dignity, tolerance and respect
with a rigorous academic program.

Our serene
campus, located just
outside Philadelphia, is a beautiful and stimulating environment:

·        
200 acres of award-winning architecture and landscaping

·        
more than 50 academic, athletic and residential buildings

·        
a nationally recognized arboretum with
400 species of trees and shrubs, a 3.5-acre duck pond, gardens and wooded
areas.

Recent campus
additions include The Marian E. Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center and The Douglas B. Gardner '83 Integrated Athletic Center.  The College is currently
constructing two new student residences:  Kim Hall and Tritton Hall.

Guided by the
College's Honor Code –one
of the oldest in the country–Haverford students demonstrate an awareness for
the greater good in how they work, study, socialize, debate and resolve
conflict.

Our students
are entrusted with freedom and responsibility from their first days on
campus—an act of trust that aims to develop the whole person and create a lasting
bond between the individual and the institution.

Students
leave Haverford with an increased sense of independence, curiosity and
confidence, as well as lasting bonds with friends and faculty. Whether they go
on to advanced education, the workforce, travel, or public service, they leave
grounded and well-equipped for rich, dynamic lives.
