What the students are saying about:

Haverford College

Haverford College

Haverford College is a tiny and extremely safe school in a beautiful area of Pennsylvania. Its motto roughly translates to “not more learning; better learning,” which reflects how engaged students are with their educations. The school is also known for its unique honor code, administrated and overseen by the students themselves, which governs most aspects of campus life and allows student to both leave their doors open and take exams when and where they please. This honor code is taken extremely seriously and, as a result, the “biggest controversies on campus always involve someone being un-PC, too intolerant, not respecting the Honor Code, not respecting their peers, etc. Nothing really terrible ever happens—it's just that they become a bigger deal at Haverford because we have the Honor Code in place and any breach of that sort of undermines the ideals of the school.” But this does create a great environment on campus. Students rave: “Haverford is a lovely place to be. Safe: very little theft, a great social atmosphere, great classes.” “The best thing is the community. I always feel safe, involved and important at Haverford.”
