“I have not, in my six years here, had a student fail to meet the requirement and not graduate,” Bryn Mawr Swim Coach and Aquatics Director Nikki Whitlock tells NPR in this story about the College’s swim test.

“A century ago, many colleges required students to pass a swim test,” says reporter Joel Rose. “Today, just a few holdouts — including Bryn Mawr, Cornell, Columbia, MIT and Swarthmore — cling to the tradition.”
