With more than 100 student groups in total, this top liberal arts college celebrates students who are as engaged in their studies as they are impassioned for their creative and extracurricular pursuits. Swarthmore is also part of the Tri-College Consortium, an integrative cooperative that allows students to also enroll in classes at nearby Bryn Mawr College and Haverford College.
