Young Graduates: Welcome to the City

39c_welcomecityOn Sept. 26, high atop a Manhattan skyscraper, George Hang '07, Ken Short '82, Derrick Gibbs '76, and Arpita Das ’08 joined more than 100 alumni in New York City and 700 others in 21 other cities worldwide, when Swarthmore's third annual Welcome to the City events took place. Alumni and friends came together at local bars, restaurants, parks, and homes to welcome recently graduated and relocated Swatties, pass on information about their new locales, and socialize and network with other members of the Swarthmore community.

Besides well-known hubs such as Philadelphia; Boston; Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles; and San Francisco, volunteers also organized events in such places as Hong Kong, London, Miami, New Haven, New Orleans, and a group of 34 in Madison, Wis. The successful, multi-city event would not have been possible without the many alumni volunteers who coordinated each individual event.
