    searching for colleges, I searched for schools that I felt fit my persona, that I would be comfortable attending for some of the most integral years of my life.

The thought of an all women’s college never

    single sex education has now more than ever before seemed to interest me. Understanding the reasoning behind why a school would choose only to educate women is one that baffles me. Founded in 1837, when the concept of women’s education seem more than revolutionary, Mary Lyon established the Mount Holyoke seminary known today as Mount Holyoke College.

    rate at which women are graduating college today has taken a dramatic turn. Nowadays, researches show that women enroll more in college and their graduation rate is far higher compared to males.

Research suggests that male students are not putting in the effort and are not getting engaged in things that will help them get in college and graduate. Women are more like the

Women experienced difficulties on campus in the late 1800’s. Though a co-ed university would admit them, they were not extended the same privileges as men were. They would not receive housing

    what has been dubbed, “The Sexual Revolution”, women have become more comfortable with defying the dominant ideologies in society that have previously bound them.
