The fourth class of Chesick Scholars capped off their five-week summer program with a day of presentations on their research.
The weather may not have been perfect, but even the rain couldn’t dampen the spirits on campus as we welcomed the newest members of the community, the Class of 2017, to Haverford yesterday.
Customs, Haverford’s first-year orientation program, marks the start of the college experience for all Fords. This year, in addition to perennial events like Dorm Olympics, a tree planting, a trust walk and the Honor Code presentation, students were treated to a Casino Night and flashmob performance.
Yesterday was the day we’d been waiting for since Commencement: the day the new first-year students arrived on campus! The Class of 2016 got lucky with beautiful weather for their move-in day, and campus, which had been quiet all summer, came alive with cars full of parents, luggage and the newest members of the Haverford community.
