One Multi-Talented STEM Student

Meet Victoria Connelly, a multi-talented biology senior at Saint Mary's College located in Notre Dame, IN. This soon to be alumna was busy this past weekend as she “played a leading role in the opera "Gianni Schicchi," presented her senior comprehensive biology project at Belle Biology Day, and played softball with her team.” POW!

But I'm not surprised, women who attend women's college are usually very active outside of the classroom. Just one of the reasons why Women's Colleges Rock!
And I’m happy to report that more and more young women are discovering the advantages of an academic rich environment at colleges for women. These institutions continue to prepare girls, like themselves, for meaningful lives and careers by providing a learning environment that fosters creativity, builds self-esteem, and promotes personal growth while affording numerous unique opportunities and experiences. Students at women’s colleges have more opportunities to take part in relevant research and internships (even as first-year students), develop leadership skills, and participate in study-abroad programs. These young women also are discovering that students  who graduate from a women’s college are well prepared to enter any graduate program or launch a career.
