My Study Space

LJ's picture


I decided to take my photo in Canaday library because that's where I do most of my studying. In my paper I discussed how comfortable and accepted I feel when I'm in the library. Furthermore, this is exactly what M. Carey Thomas wanted the library space to accomplish. However, do I feel accepted in the space because I would have been somewhat accepted during M. Carey Thomas's time? I am curious if students who do not fit the stereo type that M. Carey Thomas wanted feel as comfortable as I do? In addition, is Bryn Mawr today as diverse as we claim to be? As Sarah pointed out in class, only thirteen percent of the student that attend Bryn Mawr have a family income of $60,000 or less. I hardly think of this as true diversity.
