In addition to the unique programs that we offer, we also seek to provide all members of the Swarthmore community with access to the latest and greatest resources in design and leadership. So, welcome to our Resource Cart. Where you can check out our recommendations.
In these pages, you’ll find external websites, tips and tricks in the fields of innovation and entrepreneurship, and advice for developing your skill sets while at Swarthmore. These resources are here to help you dive deep into the the things we find super fun and relevant. To the left in our sidebar menu, you’ll find information about summer funding and off-campus opportunities, our Design and Development Fund, programs happening in the Philadelphia ecosystem, and more! Also, scroll down to see what we’re reading, what we’re browsing, what we’re watching, and what we’re listening to. Enjoy!
