SwatLink: Networking, Mentoring, and Community Building

SwatLink word in all capital letters

Swarthmore is pleased to announce the launch of SwatLink, a powerful new networking, mentoring, and community-building tool. 

Use SwatLink to:

  • Network with other Swarthmore alumni
  • Offer mentoring or find a mentor
  • Connect socially based on interests, affinities, region, and more
  • Start an online professional, personal interest, or working group (or relocate your group from another platform)

As members of the Swarthmore community, we want to connect with and help one another. SwatLink makes it easy for students and alumni to find each other for networking, career exploration, or connection based on shared interests or affinity. You can also use SwatLink to connect with alumni in your area. 

SwatLink is private and only available to Swarthmore alumni, students, faculty and staff, and select friends of the College.

We’ve just launched! Join now, see who’s there, then check back later to connect with new members. Students will be invited to join SwatLink in late March, giving alumni time to activate their profiles and create a welcoming presence.
