Garnet Homecoming And Family Weekend 2018

Garnet Homecoming and Family Weekend brings together the Swarthmore community to celebrate what makes Swarthmore special for each of us. Attend lectures, cheer on Garnet sports teams, or just enjoy spending time with friends and family on Parrish Beach. We can't wait to have you back on campus.
