Swarthmore College is where intellectually passionate students think and create together for the betterment of their communities and the world. We collaborate, rather than compete. We dive deep and then put our ideas to work.
We believe in the power of place, knowing that students will thrive in both our gorgeous arboretum campus, but also appreciate the easy access to downtown Philadelphia, with a train station set right at the edge of campus.
We embrace the knowledge that living in a community of people with diverse backgrounds challenges our assumptions and helps us become who we want to be as learners and leaders.
