I decided to attend Swarthmore because I was floored by the earnest nature of the students and professors. While I was primarily concerned with receiving a top-grade education, I was aversive towards applying to a bunch of Ivy Leagues because I dreaded the notion of becoming just another anonymous face in the crowd to professors in a vicious cycle of large lecture courses. So, as I was choosing between the small, liberal arts schools I was accepted to, I wanted to be sure that the school I chose would value me individually as a student, activist, community member, and friend, and I can assure you Swat does just that; the classes are small and often discussion-based, everyone eats under the same roof, residence halls are gender and year neutral, all parties are by law open to all students, there are incredible traditions, and there is a club for just about everyone! Since all of these factors came together in a way that made me feel welcomed like no where else, I felt Swarthmore was most definitely the place for me.
