The Streets of Philadelphia


Wander onto campus—an oasis of lush greenery—and it can be easy to forget that the country’s fifth-largest city is just 22 minutes away by train. Bryn Mawr’s close proximity to Philadelphia allows faculty to expand the classroom throughout the city.

Art historians and archaeology scholars flock to museums, historians explore the past in places where it unfolded, and sociologists engage with some of the most pressing issues of the day.

This issue of the Bulletin explores just a few of those campus-city connections.

So pull out your map, put on your walking shoes, and follow our Mawrter’s tour of the City of Brotherly Love.
