Visiting Campus: Swatstruck & Beyond

Swatstruck is our annual admitted students event, which is held in April. While on campus, students experience the condensed version of Swarthmore, from residential life to academics and everything in between. We work closely with student clubs to organize events like late night soccer with the Dean of Admissions, a spoken word open mic, and a liquid nitrogen ice cream social with the Engineering department. We invite parents to participate in a variety of events on Friday. Please note that Friday is the only day with programming for parents. 

Learn more about Swatstruck, and other campus visit options for admitted students, including our Taste of Swarthmore program.
