Why did you choose Swarthmore? “Swarthmore is an academically prestigious institution, and it will provide the necessary resources to get a good education. Coach (Pat) Gress and Coach (Warren) Danenza were a pleasure to talk to and made me confident in my decision. Also, it’ll be nice to be close to a major city like Philadelphia.
