Ask a Transfer Swattie

Lindsey Norward

Lindsey Norward, '18, is a transfer student from Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell, PA. She is pursuing a Special Major in English Literature and Black Studies while minoring in Film and Media Studies. Lindsey's email is lnorwar1@swarthmore.edu. Feel free to contact her!

Outside of the classroom, Lindsey is an editor for Small Craft Warnings, one of Swarthmore's oldest literary magazines, and writes for the Phoenix newspaper. Lindsey is involved with the Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility; she is the site coordinator for the after-school program Dare2Soar. She received summer funding for a social justice project; this summer, she plans to travel to Accra, Ghana to study the rights of women of color in the publishing and writing sectors.

"I feel the best experience of my Swarthmore career is the opportunity to engage with professors and faculty. Upon transferring, the process to adjust came with much support. Everyone is here to help, and has invested in their transfer students' academics and social interests."
