What would the college be without its carefully conceived layout, unmatched love of the arts, and fantastic May Day fête? This exhibit will explore the oft concealed aspects of Bryn Mawr's culture as seen through the eyes of its students and reflected on the pages of their personal scrapbooks and photo albums.
