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.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: There's even laptop lending program for students in need. It's awesome.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Bryn Mawr is probably one of the most diverse college around. International students made up of about 25% of the student population.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We have no Greek Life and we are a perfect community the way we are

2 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.
