“Campus events allow us to meet other people and make stronger friendships.”

I’ve been at Swarthmore for five years, and I love working here. The work-life balance is real and in practice, which is especially important for those with families or young kids. The College and my team are very supportive.

I work with Swarthmore alumni in the Asia-Pacific region. It is exciting to see how the value of a liberal arts education is attracting a lot of interest from China and Vietnam. I am proud that I get an opportunity to match the interests of alumni with those of the College.

In other organizations where I’ve worked, the environment can be “siloed.” Swarthmore is different in that our connections are close and welcoming. Campus events allow us to meet with each other and to make stronger friendships.
