Social Wellness

Students Socializing

Social Wellness refers to one's ability to interact with people around them. It involves using good communications skills, having meaningful relationships, respecting yourself and others, and creating a support system that includes family members and friends.

On-Campus Resources

Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants (RAs) are selected Juniors and Seniors, who serve in the residence halls as peer counselours and advisors. They are available to provide general information and counseling, and to make appropriate referrals as needed. RAs also have responsibility for security, fire protection, and general safety within the dormitories. RAs function as liaisons between students and the administration.   For more details email Rachel Head.

Social Affairs Committee

SAC is responsible for providing a balanced social calendar every weekend. The committee's responsibilities include funding all-campus parties, study breaks, and events and collaborating with groups and organizations to co-sponsor College events. For more information, email

Women's Resource Center

The Women's Resource Center (WRC) exists as a safe space for all women at Swarthmore. The WRC is a nonpartisan organization dedicated to creating a community of women from diverse backgrounds. Rather than taking a particular stance on issues, the WRC board initiates and facilitates discussion and events concerning women. Everyone is welcome at the WRC, regardless of gender.

Black Cultural Center

The Center fully welcomes Black students from all experiences and will support them and their efforts to thrive at Swarthmore. It will encourage Black students to explore the complexities of their identity, their connections to members of the Black community, both locally and globally, and to learn how to live productively after Swarthmore.
