For better or worse, everyone from rambunctious freshmen to thesis-writing seniors lives in one of Bryn Mawr’s dorms. Occasionally, this creates abrasive situations, but far more often, this amalgamation leads to an atmosphere of beneficial social mingling and a strong, united community. Freshmen who do not specify a preference for a single room or a language hall could wind up in any dorm, with none of the results being too disastrous. Rock is the most spectacular dorm visually. Its location, beauty, spacious rooms, and reputation for being a fun place to live make Pembroke a favorite among upperclassmen and freshmen alike. Erdman’s cave-like architecture emphasizes concrete and empty spaces, but this dorm does provide the most extensive food selection and single rooms for everyone.
As upperclassmen, students are assigned a random number for room draw. The many singles in dorms like Rock, Rhoads, and the Pembrokes fill up fast, though dorm preferences tend to depend on the class. The rest of the singles follow for the lower-numbered students. Some students aim for a dorm with window seats and lovely architecture, while others want the dorm with the best parties on campus. Regardless of their final choice, almost every student who wants a single can get one, and everyone winds up in a living arrangement that makes them feel at home.
