“There is no typical student,” at Bryn Mawr, “aside from women with a passion for learning and a commitment to excellence.” Though the intense workload means students are “very interested in… academics and work hard to get good grades,” they “are also social” and “take time to build up strong friendships with other students.” Students at Bryn Mawr really respect each other ’s individuality and love that their peers “have a purposive direction in regards to what they want to do with their future.”
Bryn Mawr has an “absolutely beautiful campus. Even though it has a suburban location, “the proximity and ease in traveling to Philadelphia, New York, and Washington, DC, is beyond fantastic.”Academics are the focus of life at Bryn Mawr,” “We do a lot of studying,” a student explains, “but we also enjoy our time here.” There are “tons of school-sponsored activities,” and there are opportunities to go to dances with tons of people,” at Bryn Mawr or at Haverford. “Meals here are really important,” adds a student. “Dinner can be the only time we’ll see each other, [which] can easily go on for an hour and a half.” Bryn Mawr’s “amazing food” probably has something to do with that.
