At Bryn Mawr, looks are not the talk of the school. Students are quick to discuss many aspects of their peers and are generally complimentary, but attractiveness is not the first thing they mention. When the topic does come up, students shrug and say, "Sure, there are some hot girls here, but I came here to study, not to have my appearance assessed." Qualities that are more prominently associated with Mawrters are academic intensity, intelligence, quirkiness, ambition, and taste for adventure.
Mawrters are not known for their beauty, but as long as puffy bags under the eyes and wrinkled clothes do not detract from attractiveness, there are a lot of very beautiful woman here. In fact, as a whole, Mawrters are a good-looking crowd. While no one spends very much time primping for class each day, those who completely neglect their personal hygiene stand out more than those who do not.
