What will you remember most about your time at Bryn Mawr? 

Late nights sitting with friends on the floor in the nooks of Rockefeller Hall, huddled around a steaming Styrofoam container of cheese fries from CampCo.

 Members of the Class of 2022, 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.
