    Since Swarthmore was originally a Quaker school, the school tries to maintain some Quaker values and traditions. One of these is First Collection as a freshman class. The entire freshman class meets in the amphitheater (very cool outdoor amphitheater), lights candles, and talks about their expectations for their college careers and their experience at orientation. After first collection, the amphitheater is also used for Last Collection and Graduation. Every year we set up a huge screen outside and watch The Graduate. The screen is also used for other movies throughout the year. There are too many traditions to list all of them. read full review
