The Power of an All Women's Education

If you want to be in an environment where you feel:

  • confident in yourself,
  • inspired to get involved,
  • part of a close community

  • Nearly half the graduates of women's colleges have earned advanced degrees and 81% have continued their education beyond college.
  • Graduates of women's colleges are more successful in careers; they tend to hold higher positions, are happier and earn more money.
