A Summer Apart

Though necessary, the past three months of physical distancing have been incredibly challenging for members of the Swarthmore family and around the world. We know that our community is separated and may continue to be apart for the foreseeable future. As difficult as that is, the essence of Swarthmore remains. 

We hope these early summer scenes of campus spaces remind you of the ties that bind us and bring you some small comfort in these times:
