Haverford College Reviews

Registration process is painless--it's very unlikely that you won't get into a class you want unless it is extremely popular. Professors are always a matter of personal preference--there are teaching styles that work well for some and not for others. I have really enjoyed almost all of my professors, and respected them both as experts in their field and excellent instructors. Classes are engaging, unique, and offer knowledge in areas that are especially interesting to Haverford students. We have a Peace, Justice, and Human Rights department. A lot of our classes examine very relevant issues around economics, race, politics, scientific innovation, etc. The workload is moderate, but you definitely have the power to control your own stress. Professors are known for giving more/less work and they're very clear about assignments in their syllabi. We also have self-scheduled exams! Whether you stay in your comfort zone or challenge yourself with your classes, your workload almost always depends on time management.

I love Haverford for the people and community it fosters. The academics are tough, but that's to be expected. There is a great balance between social and academic life. The Honor Code sets this school apart from all others in that the community (faculty and staff included) attempts to be as respectful as possible, while still encouraging tough conversations, situations, etc. I've grown so much at Haverford in the one year I have attended, and cannot wait to see how it will continue to shape me.
Haverford is an top-notch school academically with a very welcoming social environment for the most part. The customs program is something that really stands out to me, though YMMV.

My major gripe would be the spending on unnecessary building projects that would be better devoted to financial aid; the endowment is being mismanaged (though granted it is still in the national top 50 for student to endowment ratio). Applicants should also be aware that there is a significant divide and tension between athletes and non-athletes.
