4 College Student

Overall Experience: Bryn Athyn is a very small school with a lot of helpful advisers. I had little trouble transferring from my High school in Ohio to the campus life. Everyone seemed to be a little unique and different in their ow way but so am I. i am eagerly looking forward to the next years to come.

Overall Experience: The History/Human Society department is populated largely by talented and dedicated professors. Students are also given the opportunity to anonymously review classes after every term, and the reviews are taken very seriously. On occasion professors have been fired because of them.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Some employers are turned off by an unknown school. Others find it very interesting.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Nothing ever happens here. However in the event something does, the police and fire stations are across the street, and since nothing ever actually happens, they come very quickly.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Its pretty spacious, even for Freshman, and we get the room fully furnished already. Also the dorms are relatively new, and new Freshman dorms are being built Summer 2016.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: We only have one sorority. They are nice, but they aren't the big stuff like other schools.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love Bryn Athyn; the people are great, the professors are knowledgeable, the dorms are spacious, and the campus is beautiful.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I find my workload both stimulating and manageable.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Some of our facilities aren't the cleanest and health issues occasionally break out.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus your first year sucks. The freshman dorms have so many strange rules! But once you move into upper classmen housing (the suites and cottages) the atmosphere is more relaxed and you are allowed a lot more freedom.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: As a member of the volleyball team, I love the atmosphere the school has for sports! Everyone comes out and supports each other's sports teams. Hockey is the biggest sport we have on campus...no one misses a game in our outdoor rink!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school definitely isn't for everyone. At first, I felt really out of place. Everyone here seemed to be either super religious and slightly odd, or super slutty and slightly rude. I didn't really fit in with the very small school vibe. But after accustoming myself to the new environment and making some really good friends, I began to enjoy my time here.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school is smaller than most and does have a religious spin that can be restricting for those that are not ready to change and adjust to their environment. That being said I have had the ability to experience academic activities that most schools could not offer in the way of internships and teachers. Everyone truly cares about you as a person here and is willing to take the time not only to know you but help you. As an athlete it has been great to be a part of a school trying to build something from scratch. In my time here I have seen drastic changes both academically and athletically that have made me very proud to call this school my own.

Overall Experience: I really feel as if I made a great choice in my college decision.. My school is not as big as your average university but quite frankly I love the size of it. The student to teacher ratio allows us to have many one on one opprotunities with our professors which leads to achieving better results in school work and communication skills. I am grateful to be able to experience college athletics at its finest with my great coaching staff and a great group of girls to play with. I honestly wouldn't have it any other way. The staff are very open to talk to, not just about school work but they have open arms even with our personal problems. Bryan Athyn is a home away from home and my experience falls nothing short of a great one. The students are just as open as the staff. It's just a happy place everyday and I enjoy being apart of the learning and growing community.

Scholarships: We met with the college and they took the time help my parents

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I've never eaten off campus, but there is a few brochures I have received from the school telling us about some of the places around here and from what I've seen there was a wide variety of choices.

Off-Campus Housing: No rules, no problems. Money is definitely a con, not only would you have to pay for rent, but you'd have to pay for food as well.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Students are encouraged to participate in sports, or to come out and support the teams. Mostly all of the professors come out to support the teams and always ask you about how it's going.

Administration: Such a small school means more one on one with the faculty. They care about each and everyone of us as a student. The school is very strict, one warning and then your out. No alcohol allowed on campus, curfew violations are thrown out left and right, opposite sex isn't allowed in the rooms.

Local Area: Our town is small, and isolated. If you want something to do you have to drive off campus to the surrounding towns. Buses do come through, but you have to walk to the main street to catch a bus. Cars are a lot easier to handle, and there's always parking available.

Campus Housing: Rules are rules: no boys, strict curfews. Cleanliness falls on your roommates as well as yourself. Stairs will be your worst nightmare when trying to do laundry. The perks: living on your own, cooking for yourself, social life is awesome, new friends.

Greek Life: We don't have Greeks at my campus.

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.

Local Area: 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.
