"Womanliness" is one of the qualities of the 1897 Sophomore Class

In the History of the Sophomore Class of 1899, they mention their fellow female students as adding a certain quality to the class. The class of '99 felt that theirs would be the class to surpass "all previous ones in number, strength and manliness." Remembering the "co-eds," they then realized that they should "change that quality to womanliness." The writer remarks that about one-third of the sophomore class is comprised of women and they had even "taken possession" of the class. Furthermore, the history finally states that, "Amidst all our other faults it is a pleasure to know that we have the 'co-eds'."
