Diversity: If you're a caucasian, cisgender, heterosexual female with conservative leaning values you better be ready to either censor all of your opinions or get bullied off of campus. While many people at Bryn Mawr are wonderful there's a significant amount of students who are radically and hatefully liberal. Not only are those students present on campus, but they are allowed to run wild with no resistance from administration. People at this school get offended by the dumbest things and there is a constant competition to see who can be the most victimized. It's stupid and exhausting. Don't be tricked into thinking that this school is accepting because it's not. You're only accepted until you're not like them.

Athletics: Honestly I could care less about the sports teams but the athletic facilities are fantastic! There's plenty of equipment to use and everything is clean and visually appealing.

Party Scene: It's fun to go to parties with your friends, but most parties are with your close friends. Bryn Mawr has a couple of huge parties that happen during the year where a lot of people and schools from the surrounding area come, but other than that it's really who you know to go out and party. It's also pretty cool to have Philly so close so a lot of people go there as well.

Academics: The professors are great and extremely knowledgeable and influential. The registration process is fairly easy and you can pretty much take whatever class you want. I wish there were more unique study spaces, but that is what Philly is for!

Diversity: Bryn Mawr is extremely diverse in terms of race and gender, sort of political but not really economically.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Very safe, I've never felt in danger. Most parties happen in dorms.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are what really make the academics here worth wild. The students are really supportive and non-competitive because of the honor code, which I think is a wonderful aspect when attending an undergraduate institution.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Bryn Mawr is REALLY well known in higher-level education so even though someone off the street might not have heard of it, when you're looking for a job, that's when Bryn Mawr's name really does come into play. Bryn Mawr has LILAC services in order to help students who are looking for internships or jobs and they're pretty nice too.

Health & Safety: Public Safety really does care about the safety of the students. The health center is okay, but they are going to go through renovations so it will be better hahaha.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing options for the dorms are INCREDIBLE! You are basically living in a castle, it can't get any better than that.

Athletics: People don't necessarily pay attention to sports, but I feel like they are really underrepresented. People should pay attention more to them especially because athletes really do put a lot of effort into their team.

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my Bryn Mawr experience and I know that for some people it is not for them, but Bryn Mawr is truly a warm and inviting place for all students. The traditions, the alums, and the professors really do make this place wonderful.

Drug Safety: I don't really dabble around here, but honestly, nobody cares much if you do or you don't. You can easily get away with it if you want to and easily get away with it if you do.

Health & Safety: I got sick in the middle of my first semester and the health center was pretty helpful for me. They listened to me, got me the help I needed, and that was that.

Overall Experience: I've loved all the classes I've taken here and all the professors I've studied under--they all have an excellent grasp of the material and have always encouraged myself and my fellow students to speak freely and openly on every subject that came up. I've really enjoyed learning here, and I genuinely feel that I've learned a lot.

Campus Housing: I live in Rhoads North and I absolutely adore it. My dorm is huge and even though I'm in the basement I still have windows and get a ton of light. QSR is a great space, the laundry room is immaculate, and the community is pretty great. Sometimes things get loud on the weekends, but for the most part, it's pretty quiet around here.

Athletics: I really don't pay attention to athletics, to be frank. Those I know who do participate in athletics seem to be very happy with it and the gym is pretty nice. Haverford is really the athletic school of the Tri-Co.

Overall Experience: Bryn Mawr is a very unique place, and it's honestly difficult to articulate why. There's just such a great sense of community here and for the most part, everyone is extraordinarily nice and supportive. It's a great environment that promotes learning and emphasizes each of us as individuals, not just numbers, not even just students. It's truly remarkable and I love it.

Health & Safety: This campus is incredibly safe. While crime does happen, the majority of it is someone stealing ice cream from the communal fridge.

Athletics: There are many different spots - both varsity and intramural sports. Students are able to take up sports for fun, if they like.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
