All seemed intelligent but not stuffy. Nobody seemed overly stressed and it was avery relaxed environment, probably due to the lack of guys.

Campus Visit Notes for Bryn Mawr College


Visit Description:

I loved this school so much, to my surprise. Bryn Mawr is a gorgeous, intellectual school without the stuffy feel. I was so surprised how incredible the school is. The classes are small and engaging. They dorms are classic and big. The size is just right, and with the town, socializing with guys seemed very doable.

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

We stayed at the Villanova conference center, which is mostly businessmen but it was very accommodating.

Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:

Everywhere! Some places are expensive, but they're so good, it's worth it!
