Welcoming New Families

Welcome New Families to Swarthmore!

Students talking

Department Overview

Meet fellow students and other members of the Swarthmore family—alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and staff—at a Welcome New Families to Swarthmore event over the summer!  

These events are hosted by alumni, current parents, and parents of alumni in cities across the country and around the world. Incoming students and their families are invited to join us for one of these informal receptions to meet alumni, current students and parents, and staff. We provide light fare and lots of time for new students (and their families) to ask questions and receive advice.
