Campus Visit Notes for Bryn Mawr College


Visit Description:

Absolutely sold me on the school. I have nothing bad to say. Not one thing. My favorite part of Bryn Mawr was the obvious sense of community the girls have with each other. The strong traditions are very binding (and fun!). The honor code is taken very seriously, as is the student government.
