Bryn Mawr College Reviews
The community here is very exclusive, however. Students are not encouraged to have diverse political opinions. The campus is rooted in inclusion to the point of exclusion. By this, I mean, that I have known many peers here who have shamed me for not being gay. Friends of mine have been made fun of for being religious. For a place that is supposed to be inclusive of all viewpoints, I find it so sad that people are bullied for not fitting the extreme-far-left views (only term fitting) that Bryn Mawr almost requires.
