Bryn Mawr College Top Questions

What's unique about your campus?


I strongly believe that the best thing about Bryn Mawr College is the consortium we have with Haverford College, Swarthmore College, and the University of Pennsylivania. Having such a diverse assortment of classes offered to me and all the students at all these colleges, is great, seeing as sometimes going to a liberal arts college can be a bit heartbreaking when you realize that classes are not as abundant as one would like them to be. It's also great to meet more people than you would in a school with only a total of 1300 students.


The inclusive atmosphere at Bryn Mawr is definitely the best part. Everyone is willing to learn about people and learn new things, and we as a school are almost 100% tolerant of things that people would be expelled or denied access for at other schools. We are over 8% international students, are represented by 49 states, and are just freaking awesome.
