    There is a train on campus that goes directly into Philly, which is a great source of entertainment. Some clubs and events on campus provide free tickets into Philly to encourage students to experience the city and the culture it has to offer. Classrooms are frequently used to screen movies or TV shows, Soccer and Basketball games are very popular to attend, there are school sponsored parties every Thursday and Saturday. The student body is so diverse that you are guaranteed to find a group of people with the same interests as you. There will never be a dull moment if you reach out to the school community.

    There are many clubs and organizations on campus that host events like open mic nights, spoken word acapella performances, plays, and other events. People also enjoy going into Philly and hanging out in dorms.

    Go to the giant hammock, the more the merrier. Also, the giant chair, at least once, even if you think it's cheesy. Join a random game of quidditch (the team is super cool and accepting). Walk down to the falls to do homework, totally beautiful and worth it. There's usually lots of stuff happening on campus, just walk around. There's a good bit to do in Swarthmore, but there's even more if you walk or take the bus into Springfield (mall, shopping center, just explore baltimore pike). There are also swings on campus!

    Lounge on Parrish Beach, go into the city, meet up with friends at Hobbs (the only coffee shop in town), have study parties in Parrish or McCabe!

    There are on-campus parties (almost nothing happens off campus, as Swarthmore is a dry town), which range from standard frat parties to pub nights to completely sober events, like SCCS video game events, or Parrish Parlor Parties (usually games and free food). The first floor of the main library or science libraries are places to socialize while still vaguely getting work done.
