Swathmore has a great campus. Really vibrant and mature incorporated. The dorms are beautiful and student life seems awesome. Only thing I would change isn't the diversity and food which were the only areas it lacked in.

Swarthmore is an intense and rigorous school academically, yet incredibly rewarding. You are pushed to your limits in class but you reap the benefits of becoming experts in your field. Socially, the people I've met at Swarthmore have been the most unique, caring, and hardworking people I've ever met in my life. There are a lot of review saying that the Swat social scene is "Swatkard" and weird but I found people to be just insanely unique and very quirky, in a good way. Don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and get to really really, know people. You'll be surprised at how awesome the students are here.

I have grown so much as a person at this school, in part because the campus climate is so wonderful and partly because there are plenty of opportunities to get involved on campus.
