Did You Know?
- Don't have a clue what you want to major in? Bryn Mawr requires students to take divisional requirements, including two classes in the sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. By the time you meet those requirements, you will likely be ready to declare your major.
- When times are tough, the tough seek Athena. The statue of Athena is adorned with flowers, food, pennies, articles of clothing, and candy offered to the goddess of wisdom in times of need.
- About 50 percent of juniors study abroad for a year or a semester. Bryn Mawr sponsors academic year programs in Russia, as well as summer programs in Florence and Avignon. Students can also choose to go on over 60 approved programs or have a new program approved.
- Bryn Mawr's academic climate is intense, but not competitive; at least, not in the domain of student grades. It is considered a breach of etiquette to discuss grades in public.
- Bryn Mawr is part of the Tri-College Community, a feature that allows students to take classes and even majors at Haverford and Swarthmore, and vice versa.
