Swarthmore College facts and figures - more on Swarthmore 2010 Profile
Swarthmore, one of the nation's finest institutions of higher learning, is a college like no other. Open to all regardless of financial need and global in outlook and diversity, drawing students from around the world and all 50 states.
So much of what Swarthmore stands for, from its commitment to curricular breadth and rigor to its demonstrated interest in facilitating discovery and fostering ethical intelligence among exceptional young people, lies in the quality and passion of its faculty. Professors at Swarthmore are leading scholars and researchers in their fields, yet remain deeply committed to serving their students as outstanding teachers and mentors. A student/faculty ratio of 8:1 ensures that students have close, meaningful engagement with their professors, preparing them to translate the skills and understanding gained at Swarthmore into the mark they want to make on the world.
The College offers more than 600 courses a year and more than 50 courses of study; an exceptional honors program; individual special majors; a program in education that leads to Pennsylvania secondary school certification; and undergraduate research opportunities in the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and engineering.
Swarthmore is part of the Tri-College Consortium, an inter-institutional collaboration with nearby Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges. Swarthmore students may enroll at courses at all three schools and take advantage of combined, on-line library catalogues and borrowing privileges. In addition, students may cross-register for undergraduate courses at the University of Pennsylvania.
Located 11 miles southwest of Philadelphia, Swarthmore's idyllic, 399-acre campus is a designated arboretum, complete with rolling lawns, creek, wooded hills, and hiking trails. From its state-of-the-art science complex to its new, environmentally friendly residence hall, Swarthmore's buildings and architecture stand as national models of curricular and co-curricular undergraduate facilities.
The College has facilities comparable to those at many large universities. The academic buildings range from an award-winning science center to a historic library converted for use as an art studio. Major facilities for dance, theater and music complement extensive library holdings in ten distinct collections. All classrooms have sophisticated audio-visual equipment, and three large lecture halls provide a setting for conferences, lectures and films. The College's extensive athletic facilities include a fitness center, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, and an all-weather playing field for soccer, lacrosse and field hockey.
There are currently more than 100 student clubs and organizations for students on campus. Countless cultural and recreational opportunities await students in the surrounding area, including the City of Philadelphia located less than a half-hour away by train.
Living in the dorms is a huge part of the Swarthmore experience. 95% of students live in college housing each semester. Swat's 16 dorms range in size (from a cozy 8-person house to a lively 200-person dorm). All dorms house a diverse mix of students of different class years. Most first-years and sophomores live with roommates. During junior and senior years, most students live in single rooms.
Swarthmore fields 22 Division III varsity intercollegiate sports teams (Men's: Cross-country, soccer, basketball, indoor track, swimming, baseball, golf, lacrosse, tennis, track and field; Women's: Cross-country, field hockey, soccer, volleyball, basketball, indoor track, swimming, lacrosse, softball, tennis, track and field, badminton).
