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.

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.

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.
