Bryn Mawr College (/ˌbrɪnˈmɑr/ brin-MAR; Welsh: [ˌbrɨ̞nˈmaur][1]) is a women's liberal arts college in Bryn Mawr, a community in Lower Merion Township, in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, ten miles west of Philadelphia. The phrase bryn mawr means "big hill" in Welsh.[2] Bryn Mawr is one of the Seven Sister colleges, and is part of the Tri-College Consortium along with two other colleges founded by Quakers—Swarthmore College and Haverford College. The school has an enrollment of about 1300 undergraduate students and 450 graduate students.


During the winter and spring of 2014, the Special Collections Department at Bryn Mawr College and The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women's Education have engaged in a pilot project, part of which involves releasing Images from Bryn Mawr College Special Collections on Wikimedia Commons.
