Education
BA in Liberal Arts

Since its founding in 1864, Swarthmore College has given students the knowledge, insight, skills, and experience to become leaders for the common good. Offering a liberal arts and engineering curriculum, the College is private, yet open to all regardless of financial need. It is also decidedly global in outlook, drawing students from around the world and all 50 states. The diversity of perspectives represented by Swarthmore students, faculty, and staff - including different viewpoints, identities, and histories - contributes to the community's strong sense of open dialogue and engagement with ideas and issues. So much of what Swarthmore stands for, from its commitment to curricular breadth and rigor to its demonstrated interest in facilitating discovery and fostering social responsibility, lies in the quality and passion of its faculty. A student/faculty ratio of 8:1 ensures that students have close, meaningful engagement with their professors, preparing the former to translate the skills and understanding gained at Swarthmore into the mark they want to make on the world. The College's Honors program features small groups of dedicated and accomplished students working closely with faculty; an emphasis on independent learning; ongoing dialogue between students and their peers, teachers, and examiners; and an examination at the end of two years' study by outside scholars. Swarthmore's idyllic, 425-acre arboretum campus features rolling lawns, a creek, wooded hills, and hiking trails, and is located just 11 miles from Philadelphia.

M.Phil Literature

Alpha Venture Partners (AVP) is the Pro-Rata Co-Investment Fund. We are the VC's VC. Recently, we have provided $50 million in growth capital to early stage VC firms to double down in their leading companies. 80% of category leading technology companies have small, early stage investors as their first funders. Due to capital constraints, early stage funds lack the follow-on capital necessary to double down in their winners. AVP partners with VC firms to provide on-demand capital for their follow-ons. We share up to half of the economics on co-investments. Since 2011, AVP also serves as Pritzker Group Venture Capital's east coast advisors for early stage deals.
