Message for the Class of 2020: Although 2020 is a tough year, in the retrospect, our graduation memory is exceptionally unique and unforgettable. I feel grateful and lucky to be a part of it. Cherish what we have now and stay positive!

Words of wisdom for the Class of 2024: Welcome new baby blues! Enjoy your time at Bryn Mawr and do not forget your goals regardless what happened.

What you’ll remember most about your time at Bryn Mawr: Personal growth. How I was able to blend in the environment and fit in, turn around my GPA and got myself into grad school, learn to strike a balance between idealism and realism, and last but not least, realize who I really am.

Anything else you want to say about your Bryn Mawr experience: It’s an experimental journey when you think back, a four-year memory that I will bring along in the rest of my life. I will never get the chance to spend another period of time in a place like this. Thank you Bryn Mawr!

I would like to thank my parents who had sent me to the U.S four years ago, who are always by my side and supported me to pursue my academic and life goals. I would also like to thank my friends at Bryn Mawr, my roommates, and my professors (special thanks to Prof. Carrie Robbins and Prof. Homay King) who shaped my Bryn Mawr experiences.

Members of the Class of 2020, we want to hear from you! Drop us a note at Include a photo of yourself and let us know what you have planned for life after Bryn Mawr, who you'd like to thank, words of wisdom, or whatever else you'd like to say. We'll be sharing selected profiles on the College's website and social media channels over the next few weeks.
