1898 Microcosm Comments on Co-Eds

History of 1898 Sophomore Class

In the history of the sophomore class in 1898, the historian decided to comment upon the female sophomores. The historian noted that the number of female students had gone down since freshman year, but the "quality of the goods is still away above par." It is further commented upon that the Dickinson College female students are so great that they never faint from dissecting frogs or "never even budge when a mouse gets astray in the classroom." From Microcosms past, these class histories are now writing more about their female "co-ed" students than ever before.
