Student Activities Interns

The OSE Interns are your number one resources for event / party planning, funding requests, advertising events, contacting student organizations, and Friday Fun Days!  You can always reach them @!

Casey Simon-Plumb

Hiya, I'm Casey, class of 2018. Like any Swattie I'm crazy busy, involved with equestrian, the Phoenix, Tango, Salsa, SAO, Questbridge and more. I love the sense of community that a small school can offer, and love interning for the OSE to facilitate a better atmosphere for us all.

John Larkin

Hi my name is John Larkin and I'm a sophomore of the class of 2017. I'm from Cincinnati, Ohio and proud of it. I am extremely grateful to be part of the Student Employment Office. I am a potential chemistry or engineering major (still deciding!). I am part of the Swarthmore Men's Tennis Team, a math Pi-rate, formerly part of the Orientation Committee, and Student Athlete Advisory Committee. Thank you!

David Ding

Hi Swatties! I'm David Ding '16 from Edmond, Oklahoma, and I want to work to make Swarthmore a fun, enlightening place that caters to the interests and preferences of everybody. Working in the Office is a lot of fun! Getting to put together fun-day activities, creating engagement events, and working with like-minded peers is definitely something I can look forward to every time! I am involved with StuCo, Interfaith, and Capoeria, and if you have any questions about my work as an intern or anything else above, feel free to contact me!  -- check out David Ding's Prezi about Event Planning!

Joseph DeBrine

​I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico where I often hiked and ate burritos. I am a rising sophomore and plan to major in Linguistics and Language. Outside of the classroom, I am involved in the Chester Youth Courts and will be starting my first year as a Diversity Peer Advisor.  My favorite pastimes are reading, journaling, listening to podcasts and running through the Crum Woods.

Yein Pyo

Hello Swatties! My name is Yein Pyo and I am a rising senior. After three years at Swat, I have come to really value the effort that Swarthmore puts into balancing the academic side with fun events that are accessible to all students regardless of financial background. That is why for my final year I wanted to play a part in helping plan and execute these activities. Trust me, there is no better way to relieve Swat-stress than by coming out to one of the OSE activities!

Nikhita Luthra

If you want to know my life story, ask me where I am from and I will tell you all the places I have lived. I went to high school in northern Chicago but identify as a Pittsburgher. My academic interests center around economics and math, but as a news junkie, extend to all the social sciences. In my free time this year, I will be road tripping, *attempting* to cook Indian food, drawing charcoal portraits of my adorable dog, and debating the 2016 election issues with my friends. 

Khan Shairani

I am a sophomore at Swarthmore College. I'm looking to major in Economics and Political Science in the future. I enjoy reading and long walks on the beach.

Chiara Kruger

I'm really excited to start planning some awesome events for the student body! I love Star Wars, Nutella, and Polaroids more than most things and traveling is my favorite hobby. Plus, you'll see me making films and photographing everything on campus!
