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.

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

Campus Housing: Stuck in Brecon freshman year with no idea what I had gotten into. Housing is a bit complicated, but a really valuable system.

Campus Strictness: fairly lenient, but strongly handle some issues- esp. honor code.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Philly is close, and our campus is beautiful. Really close to other colleges.
