Alina van Ryzin - Bryn Mawr


Regular price $28.00

Of all the historic Seven Sister Colleges, only five remain single-sex, including Bryn Mawr College. Nestled in an opulent Philadelphia suburb, Bryn Mawr is primarily known for its gothic architecture and its historic legacy of high society alums—mainly white wealthy women who attended at a time when single-sex colleges were the only ones admitting women. Because women are no longer excluded from higher education, modern women’s colleges occupy a liminal position—their single-sex structures seem outmoded, yet they do not to assimilate.
