College days

Now this is cool. A database of historic and significant campus architecture.

Bryn Mawr is well represented, of course. I lived in this building for two years (freshman and senior).

There are those who say that Bryn Mawr looks like Princeton, sharing the Collegiate Gothic style. The same architects (Cope & Stewardson) designed a lot of the core buildings, so there is something to that. However, architectural historians agree that the first-ever Collegiate Gothic building is Radnor, a BMC dorm (where I also lived, as a sophmore). So it's not so much that Bryn Mawr looks like Princeton, as that Princeton looks like Bryn Mawr. Take that, patriarchy! ;)

I do love looking at pictures of the old alma mater. It was such a beautiful place to be.
