Health & Safety: Security is very cool and chill. They allow us to drink responsibly and they look out for us. There is no fear of them on campus. They are like older brothers and fathers that look out for us.

Diversity: There is a lot of interracial dating and couples which is shocking! I appreciate the athlethic groups and clubs are diverse in ethnicity as well

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: They guys are to bro-ish and stuck up with their sports. The females are too thirsty for men on the campus, and present themselves in socially inappropriate ways. I wish I could approach the guys cause they seem fun and friendly around their friends, but I would have to break into their social group which is sometimes hard to do at this college.

Drug Safety: Students at Haverford like to experiment and have a good time. That being said, it is also a welcoming community full of dedicated students, so drugs and alcohol are lower priorities for most. The school is very good about protecting students from law enforcement, and will break up a party before the law gets involved.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

On the whole, students are satisfied with their experience at Haverford. Most seniors look back on their Haverford education with a distinctive appreciation. It is a fondness that comes from understanding how profoundly the College has changed them. Haverford teaches its students more than just school subjects: it teaches them to lead honorable lives. Students feel that they have learned just as much from each other and the Haverford community as they have from their courses and professors. Many alumni do not realize the scope of their education until years later, but the impact is almost always felt. In this way, Haverford is unique.

Academically, the school has a spirit of reflective intellectualism that discourages students from becoming too detached from the real world. Social relations are guided by honor and civility. The student body generally has a sense of purpose and perspective and knows how to relax while tackling a challenging school curriculum. Granted, Haverford is not for everyone. Extreme partiers will not be happy here, nor will those who have no thirst for learning. Haverford's small size and rigorous classes will quickly make for an unwelcome atmosphere if you don't accept them. Also, the school can get suffocating if you don't get out of town once in awhile. However, if you're looking for a place where everyone knows everyone else's name, where the college president will meet with you on a moment's notice about anything, and where students bond over the heavy (but manageable) workload, Haverford is a terrific choice.
