ABOUT

Bryn Mawr is one of the world’s most distinctive, distinguished colleges, located 11 miles west of Philadelphia on a beautiful, 135.5-acre campus in Montgomery County. It was the first women’s college to award a Ph.D. Its history has been defined by a commitment to intellectual rigor and freedom of conscience.
