    Hello!
    I was looking up Bryn Mawr dorms when I came across your blog. I’m not sure if you’re still going there now but I’m just wondering how your experience was. I’m a senior in high school and I actually just applied there. It seems like a great school and a lot of the girls seem awesome but I’m just worried about the fact that its all women. The idea of a women’s college doesn’t really bother me, I’ve applied to Barnard and Scripps as well, its just that Bryn Mawr seems really closed off to me. I like the idea of a mostly girls learning environment and community– but at the same time I think living there I would feel claustrophobic. At least will Barnard there’s NYC and the campus is shared with Columbia. And Scripps is part of a 5 college consortium and there’s a large community there. I know that Bryn Mawr has Haverford but they don’t seem to mix all that much. When I went I almost got the feel of a girls boarding school. How’s the party scene? I’m not huge into partying but its a great time to meet people and its important to me to have that option on the weekends to just let loose. Do people go into the city a lot? Haha I’m sorry about all of the questions. Thanks!

      Hi Celine!
      I am so sorry about getting back to you so late… I’m sure you’ve made your decision as to where you’ll be this upcoming Fall, but i thought i’d respond regardless! At Bryn Mawr, on-campus housing is guaranteed for all four years of your undergraduate career, which is seriously great. The dorms themselves are a big part of the history of the school, and many of the dorms, although renovated on the inside, have the same exterior and architecture from before. The womens college atmosphere, I will admit was a big change for me, coming from a co-ed international school, but once you’re here, it really doesn’t seem that big of a deal. The community is KEY, as in the sense of community is so great, with the traditions and celebrations that are unique to Bryn Mawr. Bryn Mawr is also part of a Quaker Consortium and Tri-Co with Haverford, Swarthmore and UPenn, which is really great, just like how Scripps has Claremont and Pamona and Barnard with Columbia. I know friends that have taken nearly half of their classes at the other campuses, and they’ve made great friends (girls and boys) from the other schools. The town may seem small when compared to NYC or Los Angeles, but Philly is literally 15-20 min train ride away, and the school provides tickets for you, which is…awesome! Last semester I went into the city almost every weekend and sometimes during the week for class, and honestly, it’s alot easier than trying to get to LA from Scripps (I live in LA at the moment, haha.) NYC is a hour 1/2 away by amtrak or NJ Transit ($15!) so if you’re worried about being cut off, fear not! Good luck with your first semester, it’s going to be so great wherever you decided to go!
