- Tri-College Consortium
The Tri-College Consortium consists of three private
liberal arts collegesin the Philadelphiasuburbs: Bryn Mawr College, Haverford Collegeand Swarthmore College. The consortium allows students to cross register for courses at the other colleges. Haverford enjoys an especially close relationship with Bryn Mawr. The two schools share a student newspaper and radio station and have a fairly integrated student life.
The purpose of a consortium is to provide the specialization, flexibility and personal attention commonly found in a small college, with the resources of a larger university. Other consortia include the
Claremont Collegesin California, Five Colleges Consortium in Amherst, Massachusetts, and the Quaker Consortium, which joins the Tri-College with the University of Pennsylvaniain Philadelphia.
