From Andrea Lirio What to think about when considering colleges — it’s more than just classes and acceptance rate. When considering a college, you need to consider more than just the appearance of the school and how it looks in … Continue reading →
A quick guide to transferring credit to Bryn Mawr.
What is the process of transferring credit like at Bryn Mawr? How do IB credits compare to transferring AP credits? I honestly did not know much about it when I started here. It wasn’t a huge concern for me because my goal was not necessarily to graduate as fast as possible; it was being able to learn under a well-rounded curriculum, which is what drew me to liberal arts colleges.

Daisy Sudparid, math professor at Bryn Mawr College, believes whole-heartedly in making education accessible. As a first-generation graduate, Daisy understands how difficult it is to navigate college life and hopes to create a safe space for students to learn no matter their background.
Emily Barry is a math and environmental studies double major, so our paths have crossed many times in different math classes and department events. I’ve really gotten to know Emily this year through study/work sessions, and I’ve discovered she has such an amazing, positive energy about her. Emily is also involved in a lot of interesting events/organizations around campus (including sustainability efforts) so I invited her to share her experience at Bryn Mawr.
Getting the most from my Bryn Mawr education, inside the classroom and out.

These programs offer experiential learning, in which students can explore career and professional development tracks and topics that are not traditionally offered within a liberal arts curriculum. These intensives are really helpful in getting a chance to explore a professional area you may be interested in. You get a sense of what that field is all about, and the types of skills that would be helpful to make yourself a competitive candidate. Continue reading →
Starting college with the fear of speaking up in class, and how I overcame it.
I’ve always had a fear of speaking up in class. When I was in high school, I had trouble speaking up in class because I hated getting answers wrong. You speak up in class, and your teacher tells you you’re wrong in front of all of your classmates. How embarrassing! It’s not easy to put yourself out there and throughout the years, I grew more uncomfortable participating in class discussions. In coming to Bryn Mawr, I hoped to break out of my shell and face my fear of speaking in class.
A panel on the relationship between your major and future career.
Last semester I attended an event hosted by the Career and Professional Development (CPD) office that tackled the question of “does your major define your career?” As a homage to Bryn Mawr’s Harry-Potter-like atmosphere the event was titled “Does your Hogwarts House Define your Career?” The event was full of fun snacks like butterbeer, Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, jelly slugs, and cupcakes for each house. Theme aside, I found the event really eye-opening and relevant, even as a senior.
