As I read about how Bryn Mawr was the more I wonder about what Bryn Mawr could be. There are many things I appreciate about being here- and many things I am learning about myself. I wonder though, if Bryn Mawr is disabled as a school and as a culture by its own prestigious history. 

Is Bryn Mawr is floundering in this modern world where life doesn't revolve around the Classics? Maybe we are too deeply entrenched in the academic world to be able to look around and see whats important.

I think this school could return to its old place in the minds and hearts of the general poplace- we just need to rethink some old ideas.
