Spotlight on Women's Colleges

There are Many Advantages to Attending A Women's College That are Sometimes Overlooked

I came across an insightful blog post on IvyWise’s blog. In a nutshell, the post reviews the advantages that are overlooked when considering a women’s college.

Blog Post Highlights

“While a coeducational setting may seem more intriguing, there are many benefits to attending a single-sex college. Studies show that alumnae of women’s colleges are more confident in expressing their ideas both in and out of class, earn better salaries and hold higher leadership positions in their careers. They are also more likely to major in and graduate with degrees in traditionally male disciplines such as economics, science, or mathematics, and are generally happier with their college experiences than students who attend coeducational schools.

“….Although women’s colleges may seem a relic from bygone days, the sense of community and support that characterizes these institutions has produced confident, well-prepared graduates.  . . . So if you're looking for a close-knit environment with a history of empowered and successful women, look into some women's colleges; you just might find your best-fit!”
