An Extraordinary Academic Institution

The Bryn Mawr College student body is comprised of 1,300 undergraduate from 59 countries and 44 states. Twenty percent of students are international students. Bryn Mawr ranks within the top five institutions in the nation for its socioeconomic diversity.

The Bryn Mawr faculty has 163 full-time members, of whom 57 percent are women and 15 percent are professors of color. The college's student-faculty ratio is 8:1. Few colleges or universities can genuinely claim the intellectual curiosity, intensity, and passion found at Bryn Mawr. Small classes allow faculty members to come to know their students as individuals.

In fact, Bryn Mawr faculty members, world-renowned leaders in their fields, regard their students as junior colleagues, fully capable of working at a high level, developing their own ideas, and making important contributions. It is in this way that, perhaps more than at any other school, Bryn Mawr feels like a graduate school on an undergraduate level.

Campus Life

Nearly all of Bryn Mawr's undergraduates live on campus. The residence halls have been described as some of the most beautiful in the country. Diversity of every kind energizes the atmosphere and is demonstrated by the more than 100 student-run organizations on campus, including community-service organizations; cultural, ethnic, and political groups; music and theater groups; athletic clubs; and a host of religious organizations.

Students who are committed to a community that cherishes the individual find themselves in good company at Bryn Mawr. The Honor Code illustrates the mutual respect students have for one another and themselves. Bryn Mawr's Self-Government Association, the oldest of its kind in the United States, offers students the opportunity to have a voice in all aspects of the college.

Bryn Mawr boasts a state-of-the-art fitness center along with a recently renovated pool and new turf playing fields for soccer, lacrosse and hockey. . Tennis courts, playing fields, and dance studios give students a wide range of fitness opportunities. NCAA Division III intercollegiate sports are also available and include badminton, basketball, crew, cross-country, field hockey, indoor track and field, lacrosse, outdoor track and field, soccer (football), swimming, tennis, and volleyball.

Bryn Mawr Connects to the World through Internships, Study Abroad, and More

Bryn Mawr's 135-acre (55-hectare) suburban campus is 11 miles (18 kilometers) and 17 minutes by train from the center of Philadelphia, the nation's fifth-largest city, and all of its cultural, commercial, historical, entertainment, and transportation facilities. The Philadelphia metropolitan area includes many of the finest museums and important historical sites in the nation.

Philadelphia is an incredible resource for Bryn Mawr -- a truly accessible city rich with cultural and professional resources, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Pennsylvania Ballet, numerous theaters, professional and collegiate athletics, and some of the nation's most important historic sites, as well as internship opportunities in Center City law firms, art galleries, government agencies, hospitals, TV studios, banks, and schools.

When students want to explore the world beyond Pennsylvania, they can study abroad; in fact, 1 in 3 Bryn Mawr students participate in one of more than seventy study-abroad programs from Stockholm to South Africa.

Large stadiums and concert facilities are nearby and attract world class athletes, musicians, and artists from around the world, while Philadelphia International Airport is a 30-minute ride from the Bryn Mawr campus and provides direct flights to destinations worldwide. New York City and Washington, D.C., are easily accessible by train from downtown Philadelphia.

Proud History of Global Leadership for Women, Educating Women from Around the World for Lives of Purpose and Engagement

An International Student Adviser is on staff to meet the particular needs of students studying in the U.S. A three-day orientation program for international students precedes the opening of the academic year to acquaint students with life at the college and in the U.S. The International Student Association is a student-run organization that provides both support and outreach to the community for multicultural events and programs. On the basis of need, Bryn Mawr awards a few scholarships to outstanding international applicants who cannot attend the college without financial assistance.
