Welcome to the City

Alumni networking

Welcome to the City offers a great opportunity 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. Alumni Connections groups across the country hold 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 would like to organize a Welcome to the City event in your area, contact Geoff Semenuk at gsemenu1@swarthmore.edu. Events may be organized virtually or, where it is safe and possible to do so, in-person.
