A Female Graduate of the Class of 1961 Remarks on the Academic Caliber of Male and Female Students at Dickinson

Lynn Voss's Comments on the Academics at Dickinson
Date: 
March, 1979

A female Dickinson graduate comments in the "Women as Leaders" survey about the academic caliber of the students at Dickinson. She had always felt that the women in her classes and the classes around hers, "were superior to the men in talent." However, the "men dominated the visible offices easily" and they outnumbered the women, such as in her graduating class there were 65-70 women out of 200 or more students. The college did attract a "high calibre of women" but she never had an overwhelmingly high regard for the "academic prowess of the men."
