Haverford embodies the idea of collaboration over competition; no-one talks about grades, for instance. The area is beautiful, the facilities are superb, and the people emphasise the role of community through the lens of the all-encompassing Honor Code.

While Haverford has fewer alumns than other, bigger school, from what I understand people in the network try hard to help other people in the network/students still going to the college.

Professors here really care about the success of students. They have plenty of office hours and are happy to meet with students outside of those hours if they are asked to. I've definitely had some professors who were better than others at explaining the material in the class or who were much more engaging and interesting than others, but I think all over them had good intentions and attempted to be fair to the best of their ability.
