On Saturday, Swatties made their way to Sharples Dining Hall for the most Swakward first date ever, Screw Your Roommate. During this tradition, which dates back many years, students dress up as their favorite duos and search for their mates in Sharples lobby. Listed as #45 on “75 Ways to be a Swarthmorean,” Screw is an event to look forward to each year.
