Move-In Day 2013

The weather was challenging, but even the rain, which was heavy at times, couldn’t dampen the spirits on campus as we welcomed the newest members of the  community, the Class of 2017, to Haverford on Wednesday. Amidst a flurry of umbrellas and Customs people wearing trash bags over their colorful Nintendo-themed t-shirts, students and parents helped the first-years move into their new homes here: Gummere, Tritton, HCA and Barclay.

While Move-In Day is just the beginning of Customs, the almost-week-long program that introduces all first-year students to life here at Haverford, it was certainly a busy one as these photos show.

Welcome to campus, Class of 2017! We’ve been waiting for you.

    Hmmmm…. I know the College likes to respect Quaker tradition, especially when it comes to simplicity, and I love how the Customs Teams still swoop down on the cars and carry EVERYTHING up to the kids’ rooms. Perhaps, though, during inclement weather, the College provide the Custom Teams clear ponchos so that they don’t look like they just swam through the Duck Pond!
