What happened to the tree-swing?

Last year, a mysterious figure scaled a tree along Magill Walk and hung a tree swing that saw near constant use for the few short hours it remained in operation.

After it was removed by Facilities, James Saxon ’09 began to advocate for creating safer swings elsewhere on campus. After lengthy conversations with deans, insurance companies, and SBC, James had funding approved by the Student Budget Committee.

According to James, once Jeff Jabco gives his approval to an official swing-hanging company “it should take less than two weeks.” If all goes smoothly, therefore, Swarthmore should have two new swings in place as exams season starts to heat up.
