How Hogwarts!

Bryn Mawr’s castle-like architecture has landed it on BuzzFeed’s list of colleges that “straight-up look like Hogwarts.” Our affinity for lanterns and owls definitely adds to the magical ambiance of campus.

Comments on “How Hogwarts!”

  1. The first time I watched the first Harry Potter movie—which was before I’d even read any of the books—I took one look at the Great Hall and said, “Hey, it’s Rhoads dining hall!” A bit larger, perhaps, but otherwise so much the same. And the courtyard where the students spend their break times is just like Thomas Cloisters. Watching all of those movies is like going home to Bryn Mawr.
