New Student Orientation

Department Overview

Congratulations on your admissions to Swarthmore! We are so excited you will be joining us this upcoming academic year. 

The next four years of your life will be a time of incredible intellectual and personal growth. The Student Affairs Division staff facilitate your transition to the Swarthmore College community and your successful journey to graduation. We want to help you take full advantage of the opportunities that you will find here. The Division Directory will tell you a bit about who we are. Make particular note of Karen Henry ’87, dean of the first-year class, and Jennifer Marks-Gold, assistant dean and director of the international student programs.

You will receive more information about Orientation and your transition to Swarthmore College in May. In the meantime, please be sure you're checking your email and staying in touch with Admissions with any outstanding tasks.
