Visiting Campus: Swatstruck & Beyond

Swatstruck is our annual admitted students event, which is held in April. While on campus, admitted students experience the condensed version of Swarthmore, from residential life to academics and everything in between. We also invite families of admitted students to participate in a variety of optional events on Friday. Admitted students should check their applicant portal for more information, including a registration form.
