A Touch of Color

Seasons change, but Swarthmore's beauty stays the same.

Throughout the fall season, bright yellow, orange, green, and red colors fill the 425 acres of the Scott Arboretum, which encompasses campus. Swarthmore is consistently named one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. Below, view a gallery of stunning seasonal photos:

Changing leaves accentuate the majesty of Clothier Tower.

Shriveled leaves hold on for dear life.
