Yet these first S3P friends will hold a special place in your life at Swarthmore. They will share your journey, your struggles and your successes. Embrace new friends in one hand while holding fast to S3P with the other. Good luck." - Allison Dorsey, program director

  20. “Participating in the Swarthmore Summer Scholars Program as a Student Mentor this Summer had me interact with a diverse group of ambitious incoming freshman.
