If you have successfully setup email forwarding and claimed your alumni email but are still having trouble accessing Slack, please reach out to a Digital Organizer directly.


The Swarthmore Business Network is a resource for members of the Swarthmore College community to meet like-minded business-focused professionals. Expand your network, identify job opportunities, evaluate career decisions, and enhance working relationships. 


This is an unofficial community managed by volunteer alumni. 


Built for organization and productivity, Slack is a great platform for communities to connect virtually. 


Use it in the browser or download the app to your desktop or phone.

Can I create a channel?

Yes, discuss your channel idea with an Admin and we will create it for you.

Can Admins see my private messages?

No, Admins do not have access to your direct messages or group chats.

Can I alert the entire community with a message?

No, this could be bothersome for other community members. The @channel and @everyone commands have been disabled. Simply posting your message in a channel is enough.

How do I know which channel is right for my message?

Read the channel descriptions. Click on the channel name in the left sidebar; then click on the ‘information’ button in the top toolbar.
