1) The people here are incredible. 2) Its a challenging environment, but I definitely feel like I am getting what I want to get out of a college experience. 3) Expand your horizons - learn new things about people and open your mind in ways you may not have thought about in the past.

Swarthmore, first and foremost, provides an excellent academic foundation. You will hone your writing abilities, increase intellectual capacity, and learn to articulate passionately and accurately. Swarthmore is also great for doing things outside of the classroom-- there's many opportunities for community projects, volunteering, research, etc. Lastly, the environment is very warm and welcoming and the students are all profoundly kind.

The top three reasons someone should attend Swarthmore College are the quality of the education, the location, and the opportunities post-graduation. Swarthmore College provides a top-notch world-class education, bar none, and there is no comparison with other schools--very few are in its league in that regard. The location is a beautiful, scenic college town 10 miles south of Philadelphia--still accessible, although secluded and perfect for undertaking rigorous study. The opportunities post-graduation with a degree from Swarthmore College are also unrivaled, and it sets one up for success if one is driven to create in the outside world.
