Swarthmore College is where intellectually passionate students think and create together for the betterment of their communities and the world.
We collaborate, rather than compete. We dive deep and then put our ideas to work.
We believe in the power of place, knowing that students will thrive in our gorgeous arboretum campus but also appreciate the easy access to downtown Philadelphia, with a train station right at the edge of campus.
We embrace the knowledge that living in a community of people with diverse backgrounds challenges our assumptions and helps us become who we want to be.
Until now, your education might have been a wonderful appetizer. Welcome to Swarthmore: an endless intellectual buffet, where curiosity and collaboration help create leaders for the common good.
