For the 2018-2019 academic year, Haverford set its cost of attendance at an all-time high of $70,994. Year after year, this price tag has been increasing beyond the yearly inflation rate, and students are frequently left wondering where, exactly, all that money is going. Much of it is, indeed, going to support the attendance of fellow students, as we can see with our all-time high average (not median) financial aid grant of $50,101. Whether these numbers themselves are just is a matter for a different article, and one which has been written many times over. Instead, I want to turn the focus to an infrequently reported number: $9/hour, the base pay for most student employment at Haverford.
