Although this community is, by its very nature, pro-woman, it should not be considered "feminist" in the most political of senses.Why not?I'm unsure what the author means by "the most political of senses" and to me, it sounds like we're trying to say that we're feminists in the sense that we're for equality, but we can't talk about all of that stuff that we need for equality.This comment bothers me, because it seems to me a major issue at a lot of women's colleges, including mine. We don't want people to think we're a bunch of feminists or lesbians, and so we spend so much time distancing ourselves from these two categories that we isolate the people who are queer and/or feminists. This community is pro-women, and therefore I think it's feministic. I understand the maintainers request that we not discuss political issues, but it severely bothers me that this community is skirting away from the f-word.
Forbes's Top Ten Women's CollegesSuch a wonderful diversity of schools, I love it! Go Sweet Briar!
Hi! I am 28 years old and considering going back to school in fall of 2010. I have been seriously considering going to Sweet Briar - I loved their packet, and while I haven't had a chance to take a campus tour yet, I think I will this fall. I am planning on looking at their Anthropology and Studio Art programs, and I would really like any insight from anyone who is a student now or has been a student on the school itself and its surrounding area. Thanks so much for your help!
I'm going to Salem in the fall.Please, throw me all the advice/tips/stories you can on going to a women's college in general, and Salem specifically (I've heard there's at least two Salem Sisters in this community).Thanks!
Hey, I'm a sophomore at Salem College.Lately, I've been thinking about designing an on-line store that sells clothing that promotes women's colleges--not specific schools, but the idea of single-sex education in general. A lot of the shirts that I've seen have logos on them, and I thought it would be nice to have shirts that help unify all women's colleges. Women's College Coalition doesn't sell any that I can find. Also, I like t-shirts. I was thinking of selling some of the more popular slogans, such as: We're not a girl's school without men. We're a women's college without boys. or Rather dead than co-ed. and Ask me about my women's college or something. Then, on several, I was thinking of putting a list of all women's colleges in America on the back. Because we're a team, damnit!I don't want to do this on cafepress, because I hate white t-shirts (I stain them). Is anyone interested in starting this with me or have any ideas about how to do this? Or, at least, would like a shirt/whatever other item?
A documentary about Smith College, if you're interested.It's 5 parts.
My college choices have come down to two: Wesleyan College in Georgia or Mary Baldwin College in Virginia. I dont know how to choose between them! Help! I am so torn, I love the idea of both colleges and part of me wishes I could just split myself into two so I could attend both. Wesleyannes and Baldwinites out there, give me your two cents, please!
Hey, everyone! So I'm currently a high school senior making my college decisions. Throughout the application process my attitude towards attending a women's college changed from not wanting anything to do with it to almost not wanting to go to a co-ed college. After last summer I was pretty much dying to go to one of the Seven Sister colleges - I applied to Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, and Smith thinking that I would be really lucky to get into any of them.Somehow (and I'm still not exactly sure how), I managed to get into all three, which is extremely exciting. But now that I've calmed down about it a bit, I need to make a decision. I'm leaning towards Smith, but the more I look into the other 2, the more I like them. So, what in your opinion would you say, is the best? And if you can't say, what do you think are the biggest differences between the 3 that I couldn't really infer from just the website or the viewbook. Ultimately, of course, I'm not trying to get you to make the decision for me, but I'd really like some insight.Some info about me, if it helps:-I want to major in Psych, and either minor or double major in Women's and Gender Studies, and definitely do a lot of theatre.-I live about 20 minutes from Boston, and my parents would prefer it that I go to either Smith or MHC just because of the whole transportation thing, and in a way, I would like to have the liberty of being able to take the bus home on weekends if I need to.-I didn't get any financial aid from any of them (didn't qualify, which kind of sucks because I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to get the $25,000 that we don't really have), so that's not a factor.Sorry for the whole novel. So, suggestions?
So, what's the deal with Mary Baldwin College?Is it a women's college? I hear that there are undergrads that are men there, but they call themselves a women's college.Is it any good, a good friend is talking about transferring there. Any students here willing to chat with her more? I told her I would try to hook her up with someone.
