Swarthmore College Computer Society


We're a collective of student volunteers who maintain digital services for Swarthmore students, staff, and alumni.

The Dashboard link is our main controller for many of the features we support with a SCCS account. This page allows you to create listservs, databases, access your current lists, and change your password . For any questions you may contact us at staff@sccs.swathmore.edu or visit our FAQs page for the most asked questions.


Mailing List Updates

SCCS has just upgraded our mailinglist setup. All of your mailinglist information has been preserved, but there are a few small changes to the way the system works. First of all, mailinglists are now located at lists.sccs.swarthmore.edu. Use your SCCS account to login. Even if you did not have an SCCS account before, you will be given appropriate access to any of mailinglists that are associated with your Swarthmore email.

There are a few changes to the Mailman interface itself. To add new members to a mailinglist you should use the Mass Subscription option under the Mass Actions menu on the list settings page. There are also some changes regarding the difference between a list owner and a list moderator. There may be some actions that were previously available to list moderators that are now only available to list owners.

If you have any trouble whatsoever with the new system, please email staff@sccs.swarthmore.edu and we will sort it out.

Server Migration Complete

SCCS has just migrated from our old server Gwaihir to a terrific new server called Ibis. There may be some loose ends from this migration. If run into any problems, please email staff@sccs.swarthmore.edu. Otherwise, enjoy a faster and more secure experience.

Game pit is open!

This means that you can now chill in the pit alone or with friends. Come and play the games we have! If you have any questions, please ask us at staff@sccs.swarthmore.edu.

Heron Migration

We recently migrated Heron, our login server! This means a few things:

  1. The SSH key has changed (the new fingerprint is 71:20:a6:91:e0:f7:7b:50:70:64:8b:58:46:53:f6:95).
  2. Some software packages may be missing (email us; we’re happy to reinstall them).
