In this issue of The Bulletin, we celebrate firsts: the first STEM Posse, the country’s first self-governance association, a pair of first-generation Mawrters — and the first (print) issue of a new and improved Bulletin. (The website redesign is underway and will be launching later this year!) Shaped by the Alumnae Editorial Advisory Board, a survey or more than 4,000 alumnae/i, and a lively focus group, the new design pays tribute to the magazine’s rich history with a smaller size that echoes the original 1921 design and a font reminiscent of the letters sent by Betty Vermey in Admissions. Plus a new section we’re calling Discourse delivers more intellectual content and more alumnae/i voices.
On the cover: In 2012, Bryn Mawr announced it would be hosting the first Posse created specifically to support women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. Today, 10 sophomores from the Boston area are studying hard at Bryn Mawr. Picture from left: Sophomores Paola Salas, Immaculate Chepkemoi Langat, and Connie Chan. Photograph by Jeff Wojtaszek.
