The "Lovely Co-eds" of Dickinson College are Irresistible

Winsome Appeals of Co-eds

A male student, "Ashley," is quoted about the attractiveness of the female students in the 1888 February Dickinsonian. Ashley defends himself from being accused of flirting during chapel exercises, because he feels that "no man can withstand the winsome appeals of the lovely co-eds of Dickinson College." He further affirms that he can only but respond to those feminine appeals, even if it is in the form of "an occasional smile."
