College Sophomore

Majors: Had difficulties getting an internship freshman year, but the faculty/staff were very helpful in suggestions and support.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Gym facilities are very open to athletes and general population. Amazing building and brand-new facilities. Great classes and options

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There's not enough night life around. But we study a lot anyway.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The buildings sure are mostly pretty old but that what makes living in these dorms so special. It also doesn't mean that the facility is bad. It looks old outside but totally modern inside. Residential life is great with the Honor Code and residential life assistants too.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The school did a great job processing financial aid. Only thing is that no one likes loan, otherwise I would have rated best!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are certainly many athletes around but the school is so diverse and academia is such a big part in every student's life that athletic is just one of those things happen on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I feel very comfortable with the policy and strictness. I really think they are strict on things that are important to the community and lenient on area where students can take care of themselves.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's really safe on campus and even in town. I feel safe even when walking alone on an empty street at night.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: I would be much happier if the winter here is just one month shorter than it usually is. Snow in March is ridiculous! Other than that, autumn foliage and even the first snow in November/December is beautiful.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are only a few restaurants around but they offer a variety of food from Japanese to Mexican to Indian. It is pretty costly to dine out though because there's not a lot of competition between the restaurant they usually charge pretty high.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It is a very nice and beautiful town to live in but there isn't a whole lot of thing to do around the town accept for grocery shopping, a few restaurants and Starbucks. Good thing is Philly is only 25 minutes train away so there's always a getaway option.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health center is a joke.. Campus crime is not too bad, maybe a stolen laptop here or there when left unwatched in the library.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Classes are hard! I am an English major and challenged every day. Workload is A LOT! Don't expect to always finish all of your homework.

Transportation: The train will be your savior, and the blue bus will get you around between the three campuses.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Like any highly-rated liberal arts college, Bryn Mawr provides a stellar education to a vibrant student body on a campus so beautiful that sometimes it looks surreal. During the school year, especially in the dead of winter, it is easy to overlook these tremendous offerings and instead focus on the massive amount of work, as it contrasts to what can seem like a dearth of social opportunities. These are the times where some freshmen consider transferring.

Traditions help lighten the mood on campus, and despite what seems to be stress oozing out of every pore, most students manage to do a lot more than just handle their school work-though everyone agrees that academics is a priority. In the end, students are most proud of their academic work, but also fond of the school and experiences that they had here. Mawrters come to Bryn Mawr to benefit from the faculty and coursework the school is known for. Some women find the lack of boys on campus difficult to adjust to, or they find the general smallness of the campus undesirable, but in the end, most stay for the same reason they came: academics. When it's over, few look back on the decision with regret.
