Women’s Colleges are becoming the New College Cool! Discover for yourself why more and more college-bound high schools girls are saying “Yes” and choosing a women’s college. A good place to start is my blog. I’ve listed (and linked) all the women’s colleges in the United States and also provide additional information about the individual colleges for further exploration. Plus you’ll meet current students who share their college selection story and their reason for attending a women’s college.

The Role Women’s Colleges Play in STEM Careers
Research shows us that young women who attend a women’s college are more likely to engage in meaningful research projects while attending a women’s college; more likely to attend graduate school (especially in STEM programs); and more likely to earn her PhD.
Coed colleges simply do not provide the same supportive environments that build confidence (especially in male-dominated fields like STEM).
If you are serious about a STEM career, please consider attending a women’s college.
