International Students Welcome!

Jennifer Marks-Gold

During my sophomore year I served as the co-president of the International Students Club, known as i20. We are responsible for welcoming new international students into the College. Pictured above is Jennifer. She is our hero. She is the director of International Student Services here at Swarthmore, and provides so much for us international students. If you come to Swarthmore, you will see just how amazing she is. (Her office is amazing too, with so many flags from around the world!) As an international student myself, I relied on Jennifer during my first year in college. She is a supportive leader in our community whom we all admire dearly.

Reshma Ajayan

The same can be said for Reshma! She is our international students coordinator, and assists Jennifer in running the international student office. We cannot thank them enough for all that they have done and continue to do.

I served on a very diverse board of student leaders. We brought exciting events to the Swarthmore community this year, including feasts, parties, discussion panels, concerts, cooking demonstrations from a renowned chef, and more! From all of us in the International Students Office and the i20 board, we implore you to enroll at Swarthmore College, and begin some of the best years of your lives!

  1. Justin, you made Swarthmore alive. I feel I don’t need to travel hours to see the campus. Thank you.
