3 Reasons Why a Women’s College Could Be Perfect For You

By Lauren Ingeno

I enjoyed reading Lauren’s article and hope you do as well. It starts off with the following,

“Ladies, would you ever consider attending a college void of men?

In high school, Rebecca Collins, 21, said she was “the last person in the world” anyone expected to go to a women’s college.

But after three years at Philadelphia’s Moore College of Art & Design — the first and only women’s arts school in the nation — she is very happy that she did the unexpected.

“I think maybe there’s a stigma with any women’s college, that it’s a man-hating, bra-burning place, but it’s not like that at all,” said Collins, a fashion and design student. “It just puts you in an environment where you’re a lot more focused on what you’re learning and your future career.”

Women’s colleges have held a long-standing and respected tradition in the United States. The Sisters colleges — Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Smith, Mount Holyoke, and Wellesley — are highly selective liberal arts women’s colleges, often compared to Ivy League institutions.”
