From Haverford College

Haverford College offers one of the finest undergraduate educations in the world.

Our 1,373 students enjoy the many benefits of living and learning in a diverse community made up of students from nearly every state and more than 40 foreign countries, where 45% identify as people of color, and more than 25% speak a language other than English at home. Haverford provides a rigorous and intensely personal liberal arts education inspired by intellectual depth, collaboration, and commitment to ethical leadership. There is no place where students are more trusted, have more opportunity to shape their own path, or have a more profound impact on the overall community experience.

Haverford is located 8 miles from Philadelphia, which provides a wealth of historical, cultural, and social resources including world-class museums, renowned restaurants, sports teams, and venues for the arts. The urban environment is rich with educational, service, volunteer, career, and internship opportunities.
