Bryn Mawr has changed how I see the world in just one short year, and this is while being mostly restricted with covid precautions. The professors are truly invested in their work and words can't fully describe how close the community is. I was nervous at first to attend an all-women's college, but it has been worth it. The only change I'd make would be to see some of the students loosen up about work, but you can definitely see more of a party scene if you visit the sister campuses.
This year was extremely challenging with Covid and also I was very conflicted on my major, but I met so many lovely people and friends and gained so much academically that every challenge that this year brought was worth it!
I am not the best at online learning at all and I struggle a lot with zoom fatigue but I think bryn mawr and myself did the best we could with the situation at hand and I learned a lot from the past semester.
even though it was a very different year with covid precautions as a first year I’m very happy with my time here so far! obviously none of this was close to normal (concerning both the pandemic and the bico strike) and I know there are other people on campus that have been far more affected by the events of this school year/poor administration so my review can’t and should be compared to that of a normal year. my only major complaint is that access services pretty much sucks so if you have a mental disability like I do they’ll drag out the accommodations process for months :) but that being said I found a lovely friend group and have never felt excluded for my identity! also I always feel safe on campus even walking late at night which makes me happy
it’s been more than rough but most of my professors have been pretty accommodating (access services do this challenge)! for language classes it really disrupts the flow but I haven’t felt horrible about zoom classes although they are exhausting in every possible way
It´s been difficult, but by and large professors have tried to be accommodating. The biggest issue is perhaps assumptions about what technological resources students have access to.
Bryn Mawr is an incredible school! It struggles with diversity (racially, ethnically, religiously, politically, etc.) but truly fosters an amazing academic and community experience.
The professors are trying very hard to adapt to the covid pandemic. However, as I am in several hard science classes with labs that simply cannot be done virtually, learning vitruslly in those classes has been...trying.
I love it so far. My classes have been so interesting and my professors have been very supportive and intelligent!
Studying at Bryn Mawr has been a transformative experience for me. Not only the approachable faculty and diverse student groups offer knowledge and perspectives, the interaction and conflicts on campus also ask me to reflect on the history, critique and grow.
Although in-person learning experience beats remote learning, professors, staff and students work hard to make digital learning effective.
I loved all the classes I took at Bryn Mawr. The classes were always small and intimate and I always felt comfortable reaching out to the professors when I needed help.
Bryn Mawr is an incredible institution with academically driven individuals that pride themselves on their community and integrity. It is a perfect place to grow as a person and to develop your ideas and values as an undergrad.
I am taking classes online because of covid. I don’t love it but Bryn Mawr tries to be accommodating.
I am a sophomore at Bryn Mawr and I really love it. The campus is beautiful and the students are very friendly. The anthropology department is amazing. Classes are definitely rigorous; don’t expect all A’s.
Terrible; I wish I could select zero stars. Not accommodating AT ALL. Do not expect the professors or any of the staff to care about you; unless it is convenient for themselves.
Wish I could give zero stars. Please do not come here. All of the staff are extremely hostile. They are so set in their own "perfect" ways of doing things that they will not consider any outside opinions that differ from their own.
Bryn Mawr College is a great school for anyone looking for a high-academic and supportive community. It is a historic all women's college where there are options for dual enrollment with co-ed schools. With small classrooms, it is easy to talk and ask for help from professors with academic/personal issues. As a liberal arts school, we receive a well-rounded education along with being able to focus on our major/minor tracks.
During the Spring Semester of 2020, we, unfortunately, had to return home and finish our courses online. Bryn Mawr's quick response to the pandemic allowed for students to be able to consider their personal safety first. The support system we were given as students was fantastic, and most professors were able to adjust well to an online format. Going into the Fall Semester of 2020, students are also being given many options of whether to return to classes, to campus, take only online courses, etc.
Amazing Academic Environment. Teachers and students are always available to support. It really helps you transition from High school to college!
