4 College Junior

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

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.

2 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: If you work for the catering service you have access to food and resources to make great food. However Sodexo cuisine is occasionally, and surprisingly wholesome. They do not allow take-out but it is buffet style. They try to give a variety of food. There is one ding hall on any given day, and there it is open for an hour per meal. There are no flex dollars.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: THERE IS NO NIGHT LIFE! If you want fun, you need a car to get as far away from BAC as possible. BAC does not know what parties sound, taste or look like. There is no greek life whatsoever and the administration wouldn't allow it. There are two bars near by they are either dead and/or filled with the faculty from the college. There is no such thing as underage nightlife especially because of the whole curfew thing. And there is one bus that is of no help that stops running at 11pm. On a brighter note...Its a wonderful place to learn.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The school is really small and although very against expansion, its happening. Because of the desired size there is little space for the growing student population's cars. At the dormitory, undesirable parking is usually the only thing available because people quickly fill up the spots. As long as you register your vehicle with famous security, you should be fine on that front. Convenient parking for the learning centers are along the same line of the dorm parking.

Off-Campus Dining: Bryn Athyn College '15

The off-campus dining is pretty good. The town has a pizzeria, Chinese food restaurant, Dunkin Donuts, Olive Garden, McDonald's, and Dairy Queen. Also the next town over has a café that provides live music from local musicians.

Health & Safety: Bryn Athyn College '15
The safety at the college is second to none. Security is always riding around campus and they are available 24 hours day. The college is in a small town and students are comfortable walking around at any time. As far as the night time is concerned, it gets extremely dark. There is not too much light around the neighborhood. Also, the college is a dry campus, therefore, students do not have to be concerned about that.

2 College Junior

Weather: The location of the school pretty good. In the winter, it snows heavier than in the valley. Due the location of the school, the cold, icy weather does not effect classes that much. For instance, the dormitories are close in proximity of where classes are held and most of the professor are from the area. If anything, a class or two would be starting a little late because of the high volume of traffic, due to bad weather, on an account of professor.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Most students come from different areas of the world, and some people may not have been as well prepared as others. Also, most students learn, memorize and take test better than others do. The majority of students at my college are from the local area, in which the surrounding schools have high curriculums.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Everyone is really nice so the atmosphere is very peaceful but it can get boring at times and there is not much to do.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Bryn Athyn is an extremley safe place and a lot of the pepole are genuinley nice, I have very little worries here and its a very peaceful community.

2 College Sophomore

Majors: The ones that are offered, are smell local internships. Things like working at the local high school or theater, nothing to intense.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Certain classes I need for my major are all piled into the first trimester, so I can't take them all, then, by the last, none are offered

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Very few majors offered, classes are offered once a year or every other year so that you can't make up a class if it won't fit into your credit limit, and it puts you behind.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Hard to Find – Off- Campus Housing that is nearby is very hard to find. There are some apartments but they are very costly. Luckily, it doesn't cost that much to live on-campus.
