Haverford College is one of the premier liberal arts colleges in the United States devoted to providing a liberal arts education in the broadest sense.

Our 1,425 students enjoy the many benefits of living and learning in a diverse community made up of students from nearly every state and more than 35 foreign countries. Rooted in our Quaker heritage, the Haverford community centers on upholding the value of every individual. 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.
