Chicago Alumni Bowling League

This event recurs on Sunday every week until 11/23/2014.

Are you tired of always hearing about Oberlin and UC San Diego and Wichita State and their elite alumni bowling teams? Well now there is a chance to put Swarthmore Alumni Bowling on the map!

Better Off Bowling is a co-ed social bowling league for young professionals that runs on Sunday afternoons during the Fall.  The league is filled with young professionals along with a number of other school alum groups and usually have ~400 participants.  Better Off Bowling contacted us hoping we would be interested in getting a team or two together (does not have to be all alums though).  Registration ends early October, and the league starts rolling October 19th!

As Garnet alums, we get $25 off the regular registration price (Email for the DISCOUNT CODE!)

You can get more info or see pics at their season page here:

It's a great way to hang out with old friends, and meet new ones, plus a great after bowling bar scene with drink specials, bar games, board games like Cards Against Humanity and Jenga along with NFL games on all the TVs.


- $63, with discount code, for 6 weeks of bowling (includes rental shoes, drink specials, etc in addition to the bowling)

Conversations of Purpose

Join us as a panel of Swarthmore faculty, administrators, and alumni come together for a discussion prompted by Swarthmore College: A Community of Purpose.

The cornerstones of a Swarthmore education today are the same as they were 150 years ago: academic rigor, social responsibility, community, and commitment to the physical campus. Hear the panelists reflect on their individual Swarthmore experiences and then join the conversation as we look ahead to the future. How will Swarthmore’s particular kind of education continue to inform our lives into the future and will these same four cornerstones sustain us for the next 150 years?
