This summer, alumni in nine cities gathered at send-off receptions to meet incoming students and their parents and welcome them to the Swarthmore community.

Members of the Class of 2017 were invited to join alums, current students, and parents in Atlanta; Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Potomac, Md., Los Angeles, Denver, Durham, N.C.; San Francisco, New York City, and Chicago. The events included small gatherings at the homes of alumni or friends of the College, receptions at the office addresses of alumni, and attendance at a baseball game.
