Haverford students feel that the school is not a very racially diverse campus, as many of Haverford students are white and from relatively affluent backgrounds. Some people are definitely more willing to expand their cultural horizons than others.
One’s measure of Haverford’s diversity is, for the most part, dependent on where a student comes from. A significant number of students come from mostly white high schools and consider Haverford to be remarkably diverse. In reality, Haverford is probably on par with most liberal arts schools. There is diversity, but the diversity does not do a particularly effective job of transforming anybody’s world view or cultural experience. Minority students from minority-majority schools typically find the culture shock much more powerful than white students from white-majority schools.
