Swarthmore prides itself on its diversity. There are students from all 50 states and more than 60 foreign countries here, and this diversity adds richness to classroom discussions and social interactions. It is true that similar people tend to stick together and only converse with one another, but due to the size and attitude of the College, everyone is very welcoming. And while there are a few groups that don’t branch out and talk to people of different races, classes, genders, or sexualities, for the most part, everyone interacts with one another in a positive manner, regardless of their background. Students from various backgrounds often become the best of friends.
Swarthmore is a place to learn about and celebrate all cultures, and the administration is truly sensitive to the needs of minority students. Groups on campus, such as Enlace (a Latino organization), SOCA (a group for students of Caribbean ancestry), and SQU (Swarthmore Queer Union), can provide excellent support networks and help make the adjustment to Swarthmore easier. Minority organizations also play a major role in campus activities. Groups like Deshi, Enlace, SQU, and SASS (Swarthmore African American Society) throw some of the best parties and have also been known to attract the most interesting speakers and performers.
