Guest Post: Religious Life at Haverford

Dear Class of 2022,

Welcome to Haverford!

Haverford College welcomes students of all faith backgrounds, religious interest, spiritual curiosity, or secular worldview to join in our shared community of trust, concern, and respect here on campus.

A list of active student religious groups at Haverford is available on the College website here:


Quaker students on campus, organize themselves through the programs of Quaker House, a student-run themed housing option.  They can be contacted by joining their Facebook Page:

If you are interested in helping to start an additional student group around your own particular religious practice, feel free to contact the religious and spiritual life office in Whitehead Campus Center 208, or email me at

If you want to know where to go for Rosh Hashanah services, when Catholic Mass is celebrated on campus, what support is provided for the observance of Ramadan, or how to talk to your professor about making time and space for your personal religious observances, you are welcome to contact me about those or any other questions concerning religious life or Quakerism generally.


Whether you consider yourself a person of faith or not, you can greatly support spiritual & religious life on campus by taking this optional survey on religious affiliation at Haverford:

I look forward to welcoming you to campus in just a few weeks. May your time at Haverford be full of growth, courage, and deeper self-understanding.

Best wishes,

Walter Hjelt Sullivan
Coordinator of Religious Life
Director of Quaker Affairs
