The STEM Career Path of Nancy Toure '14: Geology Major

As a STEM woman, I love calling attention to the connection between women's colleges and STEM careers. For starters, STEM women are taken seriously at a women’s college. In addition, colleges for women offer their students an environment that is supportive and research-based. And exciting internships, on and off campus are always available. I think women’s colleges have so much more to offer and this is why I encourage all STEM girls to consider attending a women’s college.

In this blog post, I'm sharing with you the story of Nancy Toure. Like many STEM girls today, she also was not thinking about attending a women's colleges. Now that she's graduated, she's so glad she did.

Here's how her story begins:

"As the first person in her family to apply to college, Nancy wasn’t sure about Bryn Mawr. In fact, women’s colleges weren’t even on her radar. But on visiting, she loved Bryn Mawr’s sense of community and the relationships with Haverford and Swarthmore (aka, the Tri-College Consortium). And Bryn Mawr hasn’t disappointed: “You meet lifelong friends at Bryn Mawr, and the deans and professors are there for you,” she says."

Bryn Mawr College offers many fields of study. While Nancy majored in geology, many other STEM programs are available as well as taking part in research as an undergraduate (like Nancy did).

Learn more about Bryn Mawr by first visiting their Web site, then schedule a campus visit.
