Bryn Mawr is REALLY well known in higher-level education so even though someone off the street might not have heard of it, when you're looking for a job, that's when Bryn Mawr's name really does come into play. Bryn Mawr has LILAC services in order to help students who are looking for internships or jobs and they're pretty nice too.

The professors are what really make the academics here worth wild. The students are really supportive and non-competitive because of the honor code, which I think is a wonderful aspect when attending an undergraduate institution.

I have really enjoyed my Bryn Mawr experience and I know that for some people it is not for them, but Bryn Mawr is truly a warm and inviting place for all students. The traditions, the alums, and the professors really do make this place wonderful.
