The Dickinsonian Criticizes the New Co-eds

Criticisisms Against the New Co-eds
Date: 
November, 1889

The 1889 Dickinsonian criticizes and attempts to give friendly advice to the new co-eds about their actions on campus. They warn them to "Don't be too fresh" and to "avoid all foolishness and flippancy which might place you in a false light...[and] provoke criticism." The Dickinsonian praises the co-eds of 1889 and 1891 as being prime examples of exemplar actions. To the new co-eds, they advise them to look towards these two classes and "consider the prejudice and opposition which they had overcome" and reflect on the respect with which they were treated.
