Whether you live in Philadelphia, on the West Coast, overseas, or somewhere in between, it's easy - and fun - to stay connected to the Ford. Opportunities are available to volunteer for local events and outings, provide career support for students and alumni, nominate your peers for an Alumni Award, support the College financially, interact with fellow Fords on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn! Discover all the ways you can remain engaged with Haverford.

Nearly 1,000 alumni help Haverford recruit prospective students, serve as liaisons between the College and their classmates, organize regional Haverford events around the globe, and mentor students and graduates on everything from careers to advanced degrees.

Regional Volunteers

Regional Volunteers help to plan faculty talks, alumni panels, service projects, happy hours, dinners, and other alumni activities across the country. Each year, volunteers convene at Regional Planning Meetings in Boston, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Seattle to set the schedule of alumni events for the year. It's not too late to get involved this year! Even if you're not in one of these areas, we welcome volunteers to plan events in their areas, and Alumni Relations and Annual Giving (ARAG) will be happy to help.
