*Swarthmore College*

As part of its sesquicentennial celebration, Swarthmore College asked alumni to tell of this college in 150 words or less. A college founded by Quakers and opening its doors in 1869 for a society of engineers on a campus where Parrish Hall burned twelve years later only to Rise with the Phoenix in 1882 with paper in tow and publishing now for 133 years in a row. Swarthmore is a college that mocks trials with tribulations in the arts and sciences; debating, creating, and affiliating this name amongst the elite of the North…when this name is called its greatness comes forth with its contributions to scholarship and lives solidified in Garnet. But even counting the numbers it’s hard to enumerate what one hasn’t lived and even harder if you do relate to an experience no sum of words can communicate even with the sum of all numbers and words.
