1 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are D3 where it matters. Our school is small so almost no support. We have a great hockey team.

All other sports are noteworthy.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: The school, against its better judgement has been expanding. It has recently acquired two basketball teams that brought in 'diversity'. The school has a handful of international students. For the most part the college attendees are the Bryn Athynites. There are large wealthy conservative caucasian families and people that have known each other their entire lives. Everyone is of the New Church. There is no such thing as being openly gay or lesbian on this campus.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: BAC is scenic, that is the ONLY thing that it has going for itself. The area is very safe. But there is nothing but scenery, no activities, no attractions, no shopping or recreation. The locals are amazing, they are uncomfortably pleasant towards the students.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: If you work for the catering service you have access to food and resources to make great food. However Sodexo cuisine is occasionally, and surprisingly wholesome. They do not allow take-out but it is buffet style. They try to give a variety of food. There is one ding hall on any given day, and there it is open for an hour per meal. There are no flex dollars.

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: THERE IS NO NIGHT LIFE! If you want fun, you need a car to get as far away from BAC as possible. BAC does not know what parties sound, taste or look like. There is no greek life whatsoever and the administration wouldn't allow it. There are two bars near by they are either dead and/or filled with the faculty from the college. There is no such thing as underage nightlife especially because of the whole curfew thing. And there is one bus that is of no help that stops running at 11pm. On a brighter note...Its a wonderful place to learn.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The school is really small and although very against expansion, its happening. Because of the desired size there is little space for the growing student population's cars. At the dormitory, undesirable parking is usually the only thing available because people quickly fill up the spots. As long as you register your vehicle with famous security, you should be fine on that front. Convenient parking for the learning centers are along the same line of the dorm parking.

Off-Campus Dining: Bryn Athyn College '15

The off-campus dining is pretty good. The town has a pizzeria, Chinese food restaurant, Dunkin Donuts, Olive Garden, McDonald's, and Dairy Queen. Also the next town over has a café that provides live music from local musicians.

Health & Safety: Bryn Athyn College '15
The safety at the college is second to none. Security is always riding around campus and they are available 24 hours day. The college is in a small town and students are comfortable walking around at any time. As far as the night time is concerned, it gets extremely dark. There is not too much light around the neighborhood. Also, the college is a dry campus, therefore, students do not have to be concerned about that.

2 College Junior

Weather: The location of the school pretty good. In the winter, it snows heavier than in the valley. Due the location of the school, the cold, icy weather does not effect classes that much. For instance, the dormitories are close in proximity of where classes are held and most of the professor are from the area. If anything, a class or two would be starting a little late because of the high volume of traffic, due to bad weather, on an account of professor.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Most students come from different areas of the world, and some people may not have been as well prepared as others. Also, most students learn, memorize and take test better than others do. The majority of students at my college are from the local area, in which the surrounding schools have high curriculums.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Everyone is really nice so the atmosphere is very peaceful but it can get boring at times and there is not much to do.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Bryn Athyn is an extremley safe place and a lot of the pepole are genuinley nice, I have very little worries here and its a very peaceful community.

2 College Sophomore

Majors: The ones that are offered, are smell local internships. Things like working at the local high school or theater, nothing to intense.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Certain classes I need for my major are all piled into the first trimester, so I can't take them all, then, by the last, none are offered

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Very few majors offered, classes are offered once a year or every other year so that you can't make up a class if it won't fit into your credit limit, and it puts you behind.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Hard to Find – Off- Campus Housing that is nearby is very hard to find. There are some apartments but they are very costly. Luckily, it doesn't cost that much to live on-campus.

4 College Senior

Academics: One of the most popular study areas is History. Since the Glencarin Museum is across the street, it gives a lot of the History Majors an opportunity to intern at the museum and is easy access. The teachers of the department are also well qualified and take the History Club to nearby locations.

4 College Senior

Academics: Professors Are Very Helpful. The Head of the Department you want to major in becomes your counselor once you declare your major. As you can imagine, this is extremely helpful. They help you pick the out the perfect classes, notify you of internships that you may be interested in, and are always available to offer assistance and guidance.

4 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great Life Lessons – Not the best school to go to for academic reasons, however, I have learned a lot about life in general and am able to use my education here as a basis for transferring to another school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Early Curfew for Freshmen – Kind of strict, but punishments not too bad. It is a church school. It's a dry campus, even if you are 21.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: General Students Are Fine – They all have fine looking. The students do not party that much. We have lots of hockey boys

3 College Freshman

Computers: Overview About Bryn Athyn College – It is nice small college. There are about 20 students for each class. You have many chance to get to know your professor. Also, people in Bryn Athyn are very nice. However, it has limited courses and majors. Also, it is religious school.
