Student Organizations

Intercultural Center


Founded in 2001, COLORS is a student organization for queer, trans, and questioning students of color. Whether it's through meetings and discussion, cozy movie screenings, or RuPaul, we're committed to providing a better space for QTPOC on campus.

Swarthmore Queer Union

The Swarthmore Queer Union (SQU) is an organization that seeks to improve the life of queer, trans, and questioning students on campus. SQU is dedicated to building a community for these students to grow and learn together, and challenge social injustices through discussing and sharing experiences. SQU is a community group for students who self-identify as queer, trans, or questioning of racial/ethnic identity, religious background or ability level. In addition to having weekly hour-long meetings, SQU sponsors speakers, workshops, student/faculty/staff events, open meetings, awareness and outreach events, and parties throughout the year. SQU also advocates to the administration for queer and questioning issues related to student life, faculty, and curriculum.
