Grads of Women’s Colleges Tell It Like It Is!

Julia West wrote an article, "All the studious ladies: pros and cons of women’s colleges" that was published on June 9, 2013.

Article Highlights:

"Though the idea of a women’s college may sound outdated to some, the truth is that can still be beneficial. Colleges that offer single sex education are providing a space where women can witness other women achieving, teaching and advancing. We spoke with several graduates who attended women’s colleges and learned the pros and occasional cons of an all-girls school. . . .  

Confidence is a topic that came up frequently when speaking with women’s college alumni and it’s clear that there is no lack of it. Some might ask if single sex environment can lead to timidity in the workplace. The answer, not surprisingly, is a resounding no. Word on the street is that women’s colleges produce headstrong, often fearless leaders who don’t let gender stand in the way."
