Why a Women's Undergraduate Experience?
Choosing a women’s undergraduate program can open doors that might not seem obvious at first, but will definitely pay off! Don’t be afraid to make a bold and unexpected move on your path to success.
Benefits of a women’s undergraduate experience
There are tons of myths and misconceptions about undergraduate programs for women. People assume they are catty, they won’t prepare you for the “real world,” and your social life will be totally non-existent. Wrong! There is ample evidence that women’s undergraduate programs actually prepare women to succeed better than co-ed colleges.
Compared to women at co-educational institutions, students and alumnae/i from women’s undergraduate programs:
- Have more successful careers holding higher positions, increasing their earning power, and finding more satisfaction in their work.
- Are more likely to express the goal of wanting to influence the political structure, and to have worked in a local, state, or national campaign.
- Report higher levels of class participation, active learning, and faculty interaction, resulting in more confident and well-prepared graduates.
- Are more likely to collaborate in faculty-led research projects and experience student-centered teaching practices that respect the expression of diverse beliefs.
