What is the Daily Digest?
The Daily Digest is Bryn Mawr College’s daily e-newsletter sent out to all of campus, listing important information in regards to upcoming or day-of Announcements and Events. The Daily Digest arrives by email just after midnight each weekday during the academic year.
The goals of the Daily Digest are:
- To decrease the quantity of mass emails each person receives in their inbox
- To increase visibility and awareness of campus happenings by encouraging email readership by having everything in one place
