HAVERFORD, Pa. - October 5, 2009 The elite liberal arts school in suburban Philadelphia received
a $10 million pledge for the project from The Jaharis Family
Foundation. Steven Jaharis is a physician and 1982 alumnus who sits
on the Haverford board of managers.
The gift is contingent on the private college securing another
$10 million in donations from other benefactors by the end of 2012.
Nearly all of Haverford's 1,200 students live on campus. The new
dorm will be named for Tom Tritton, a past president of the
college. The most recent residence hall was built in 1968.
Haverford officials announced the Jaharis pledge on Friday.
