‘Discover Swarthmore’ College Weekend
Discover Swarthmore! Swarthmore College’s all-expenses paid* overnight weekend program for Asian, Black, Latino/a, and Native American high school seniors, is scheduled for September 28th to September 30th . Prospective students will get a first-hand look at Swarthmore as they attend classes, stay with current students in the dorms, eat in the dining hall, and enjoy a candid view of campus life. Prospective students will also hear from faculty, staff, alumni, and current Swarthmore students through a series of panel discussions.
