1911 Female Alumni Commends Dickinson for Required Courses

Jane Shenton Alumni Questionnaire Response
Date: 
January 15, 1955

Jane Shenton, an alumnus from 1911, comments upon the required courses for the 1955 Alumni Questionnaire. Even though at the time Jane Shenton complained about the required courses, looking back she remains grateful for taking courses that were out of her line of interest. She was required to take a year of math, philosophy, two laboratory sciences-biology and either chemistry or physics and political science. She fondly states that, "these courses laid the foundation for much interesting reading in later years...fields in which I had no interest as a student...they taught me how to apply myself to different tasks."
