Scarlet Sages

The 50+ Club

The Scarlet Sages are all Haverford College alumni who have celebrated their 50th Reunion. The group was started by Mather Lippincott '43.

The Scarlet Sages exist to enjoy the good life begun at Haverford, and shall join with classmates and Sages from neighboring institutions to further this pursuit of happiness.

The Scarlet Sages, along with the Bryn Mawr Golden Sages, and Swarthmore Garnet Sages plan trips throughout the year, typically in the Philadelphia region. Past events have included museum trips, lectures, and musical performances. For information on upcoming Scarlet Sages events, contact Liz Campbell, Scarlet Sages Coordinator, at (610)896-1189, or
