Reasons to attend and to not attend Swarthmore College

To Attend

  • “If you want a liberal arts experience but want to be close to the city.”
  • “The people are wonderful and it’s not a rat-race learning environment.”
  • “It’s very much the norm to ask, ‘What are your pronouns?’ It’s a good place to dive deeper into your gender or sexual identity.’
  • “The resources and access you get at Swarthmore in terms of research and internships.”

To Not Attend

  • “It’s a small school. You can’t be anonymous if you ever want to be.”
  • “If you’re looking for a social scene or party scene that is very vibrant, Swarthmore is not the place for you.”
  • “If you’re not into the small-town feeling.”
  • If you want a little more social life. Even sports-wise, even though it’s Division III there is no real community or care for athletics unless you’re on the team, or have a friend on the team.
