Diversity: Ethnic diversity is pretty prevalent but political diversity is not.

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.

Campus Housing: Our dorms are like palaces! Many have fireplaces and windowseats. It is easy to get a single after your first year.

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

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From taking "Sociology of Harry Potter" in my first semester to a college-sponsored trip to Barcelona to study food and communication, Bryn Mawr has been incredible. Every experience I've had - from courses I took to fulfill requirements to student activities subsidized off-Broadway shows - has impacted me in some way.

Campus Housing: I don't really like my dorm right now, but hopefully I'll get a better dorm next year.

Athletics: The gym is okay, but sports are basically not important here besides the PE requirement.

Party Scene: There are a variety of parties by different groups on campus so it is pretty fun.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The Deans and academic advisers have always been helpful in making sure that we are aware of the opportunities on campus from study abroad to internships etc.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is great diversity in sexual orientation and being mindful about the preferred pronouns of everyone on campus. We learn not to assume people's pronouns.

Drug Safety: People have a great time with or without drinking.

Health & Safety: Everywhere on campus there is always a campus safety number. One of the first thing emphasized to the first years at Bryn Mawr is to have the number of campus safety and to call them for literally anything.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are great, they each hold a symbolic value and facilities usually takes great care of it making sure that is clean and is a comfortable space to be a part of. The dorm I live in (Rock) has a home-like feel and the hallways are close but not too close so there is a social life available and easy to talk to anyone as they are always passing through the halls etc.

Greek Life: Bryn Mawr College does not have Greek Life. Bryn Mawr tries to foster a community that is noncompetitive and where the only competition is with ourselves.

Athletics: The athletics at my school always show highlights of an athlete in any of the sports who have shown exemplary skills in anything in particular. The facilities always email us with upcoming events and also provide us with numerous ways we can stay active on campus!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at Bryn Mawr College so far is great! There are multiple levels of members that are a part of the Dorm Leadership Team so someone is always available to help you in your dorm! They can help you from your social life to your academic life and that is amazing! The professors are very caring and easy to approach and the community itself is very nurturing!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: You get to know people in your major because there are usually only three or four classes each semester in any field, which creates a great learning environment. Some professors are semi-famous around campus for being really nice, inspiring, cute, or funny. The only bad professors I've met let the class go off topic too much, rather than were boring. Definite feel of a learning community in class, not just a bunch of people taking notes next to each other.

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.
