Welcome to the City

Alumni networking

Welcome to the City offers a great chance to make new Swarthmore connections in your city or region. Every year, hundreds of young alumni from Swarthmore College move to new cities in pursuit of further degrees, research, new jobs, or just to resettle. During October 2018, alumni Connections groups in 16 cities across the country had informal get-togethers to welcome new residents, pass on valuable information about their new locale, and socialize and network with other members of the Swarthmore community.

If you wish that your area were represented, write to Geoff Semenuk in the Office of Alumni and Parent Engagement at gsemenu1@swarthmore.edu and volunteer to coordinate an event! WTTC events can be a happy hour, a meet-up at a park, a potluck at someone's house or backyard, or just about anything that you can dream up.
