Very Hard, but Supportive – The academics here are very rigorous and it's easy to fall behind, but your professors always know your name and will reach out to you if you're struggling. Some professors are really strict though.
Registration is easy, but do it fast or you might not get the classes you want.
The 360 and Praxis programs are really great, but very in-depth and take a lot of work. This school is not for slackers!

Fantastic Computer System. Free Printing! There are computers in the libraries, campus center, and the Lusty Cup free to use, and they're very fast and reliable. Computer problems are quickly fixed, and the secure network is very fast. Our guest network is of average speed, but no one uses it.
The help desk will help you with networking problems.
We also have 1,200 free printing pages. after that, each page is 5 cents to print which isn't bad and most people don't use up their allotted 1200 pages anyway. You can print from the library computers or use the library printers from your own computer, which is great.
Everything is wireless, so there are no ethernet cords.

Internship or None? Probably None. I have not had an internship and do not plan to at this time.

All Is Well – Bryn Mawr is definitely not the party school; not during the weekdays that is. On the weekend, everyone seems to come out of their shell and that is when you really feel like you're in a college community. Otherwise, for the most part it feels as if you live on a block with a lot of quiet neighbors who are focused on getting their degree; that's the way it should be.

Much for Mawrters – Bryn Mawr is a small community where everyone is likely to know everyone. In fact, we are one big college community; down the road is Harcum College, Rosemont College, Haverford College, Cabrini College, and Villanova University. If you've been to Bryn Mawr, you've probably been to Hope's Cookies or Starbucks just two minutes away!!!

Still Figuring That Out – still undecided, but the faculty, students and the community have been super helpful in helping.

Unexpectedly Amazing – I thought Bryn Mawr was going to another college, but as I came here, i found an amazing community that i would never think about leave. the atmosphere and the acceptance among the students is something i never saw on any other campus. it takes a strong person to come here and be known for their thoughts and opinions on events, rather than how they look or who they know.
College Junior 2012-02-11T20:10:13Z
Lots of Options – You can major at Bryn Mawr, Haverford, or Swathmore. There are many choices in majors and they mostly well respected programs. I can't think of any major with a bed rep.

Drink Responsibly – At Bryn Mawr, as long as you drink responsibly and take care of yourself and each other, the administration doesn't really care what you do. The emphasis is on staying safe and to not cause any problems. There is a drug scene on campus but it's mostly limited to pot and it's not as popular as drinking.

Studious but Tight Community – BMC is -not- a party school. Social life tends to revolve around classwork, but all the students and teachers are extremely helpful and supportive. There is very little estrangement, and a general agreement that people will be people, and everyone is worthy of respect.

Diverse Community – Acceptance is the policy at BMC--there are religious clubs, LBGT ones, and ethnic clubs. You'll tend to have a mixture of various cultures in the classroom.

Dining Halls Are Fantastic – The dining halls are all surprisingly good. While they do have a rotating menu, so things will get repeated, the quality and taste is superb.
College Junior 2012-01-07T15:12:39Z
Generally a Smooth Process – As long as things are turned in on time, it's a simple process. They are also flexible if you need a little extra time, etc.

Great Atmosphere – 20 minutes from Philly. There are plenty of restaurants and small shops to browse through in Bryn Mawr town, as well as easy access to Haverford and the larger chain stores there.
Overall, great atmosphere. Very safe.

Four Seasons – Although it gets cold in the winter, it doesn't snow very often which means you can still get to class. Also all the buildings are really close together so it means moving around campus isn't that awful in the winter. In the summer it can get extremely humid, but there is usually a light breeze and the campus is gorgeous.
College Junior 2012-01-05T22:47:05Z
Lots of Variety – There is a SEPTA train station that is literally a block off campus, which is super convient. The Blue Bus which runs between Bryn Mawr and Haverford runs fairly frequently and is usually on time. The bus or van that goes to Swathmore runs a lot less often though. SEPTA isn't very expensive if you don't use it very often, but it would add up over time.

Yummy Food – There are two dining halls on campus and the food is stellar. There is a lot of variety of food available even though the student population is small. Only problem is that the dining halls close kind of early in the evening on the weekends.

Need Based – I got a lot of grants, about 23,000 a year, but it is still a struggle to get the rest. Everyone at the Financial Aid department is very helpful and understanding.

It takes a certain type of person to enjoy Bryn Mawr, but if you are that kind of person (driven and quirky) you will love it here. The best thing about the school is all the personalized attention you get from your deans and teachers.

Sports Aren't Everything – While the students who participate in sports would rate their experiences favorably, Sports are not a big part of campus life at all.

I was a chemistry major at Bryn Mawr College and I loved my education. The professors are wonderful because they take the time to get to know you. My largest classes have been about 30 students in Organic Chemistry. In all other upper level chemistry classes, I was in a class of about 8. In my graduating class, there were about 9 chemistry majors. Some went to industry and others like myself are interested in going to medical school.

Tons to do – There is a niche for everyone, and at least in my dorm, they all actually interact and get along very well. If you can't find something to do here, you probably wouldn't be as social as you think you would somewhere else. The school has a vast array of clubs and such for those who don't like to party. And, area is literally teaming with parties and nightclubs. There are dorms on campus that through parties, and there are always options at Haverford, Swarthmore, Penn, Drexel, Temple, Villanova, and St. Joes. There is literally not a night of the week that I couldn't be at a party if I wanted to be. Yet, it is not right in my face when I need to work either.

Something for Everyone – The gym and dance facilities are really good. The fields are great. There are quality teams for the schools size, and PE options available for everyone else to stay in shape.
College Junior 2011-12-23T02:16:00Z
Common Sense – I was surprised reading some of what has been written about Bryn Mawr. The transportation is great, and easy to use. All that is required is the ability to read a schedule! There are shuttles to and from Swarthmore and Haverford, and the train to the city is right up the street. I use all frequently and with ease. Shuttles are free, and I am reimbursed from the school for the cost of getting into city for my class at Penn.

Let's be real, Bryn Mawr athletics are TERRIBLE. A good portion of the teams haven't won a conference game in years (or at all). Some have only one 1 or 2 games per season or not at all. I don't even like letting people know my school has varsity sports teams. I have been to a few games and these girls wouldn't even make a JV high school team. I am pretty sure some didn't even play in high school. Please do not waste your time with this school if you are at all interested in sports and have played even a year of varsity in high school, you will be WAY to good for our teams. I know the athletes work hard and practice everyday, but if you aren't good enough/didn't play in high school why do you deserve to represent your college? No one attends games either, but why should we? Save some money Bryn Mawr, get rid of athletics.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
