The Co-ed's Crush

The "Locals" section of the November 1885 Dickinsonian comments upon the curious case of the male student, "Crooks." Apparently, Crooks despises the female students, who unfortunately most of them have a "crush" on him. The Dickinsonian scolds him on being against them, because he of all people should be for the co-eds.

Date: November, 1885
"Be Polite"

The November 1885 issue of the Dickinsonian calls for men in their "Editorial" section to "Be Polite." The paper is asking the men to be polite now that there are ladies at the institution. Men must be reminded that the female students at the college "are ladies and are worthy [of] the most chivalrous treatment."

A Divided Class

The "Editorials" section on the front page of the November 1885 Dickinsonian includes an article titled, "A Divided Class," which are divided on co-education. Some members of the class are for "the co-eds" and others are "anti-co-eds." The Dickinsonian calls for the Freshman class to "come to terms" with co-education and to not make themselves a laughing stock of the school. The paper also claims that their fight against the women is ridiculous because "chicks are timid creatures and daren't hurt anybody."

Freshman Class Split Over the Co-ed Question

The October 1885 Dickinsonian mentions in the "Locals" section that the Freshman class is torn over the question of co-education. It was stated that ten members of the class "refuse to join the class-organization if the co-eds. are allowed to join." The other half of the class insisted that an invitation be "extended to the fair causes of strife."

"Next gentleman!"

In the "Locals" section of the 1885 October Dickinsonian, a quote by a professor about co-ed classes was published. Forgetting that classes are now comprised of males and females, Doctor Harman addressed the class, "Next gentleman" and was teased by the class.

Date: October, 1885
Hurrah for the Co-Ed!

The July 1885 issue of the Dickinsonian praises in the "Miscellany" section a fellow co-ed student, a Miss Bender, for her good work at the college. Elizabeth Bender received the prize for best scholarship in Greek and for leading the class in general work. This was published to show those "few petty, jealous and narrow minded students who believe that woman's place is no place" as well as the "theory of the natural inferiority of woman to man" has been debunked and those beliefs look bad upon the character of those who believe them.

Date: July, 1885
"Messrs. Editors...A Sophomore"

The "Miscellany" section of the December issue of the 1884 Dickinson includes a letter to the editor about the "petty prejudices" towards the co-eds. by the male members of the Sophomore class. The paper recommends that these negative actions detract from the class's former reputation.

Date: December, 1884
"Seven Reasons Why..."

The December 1884 Dickinsonian mentioned the "Seven Reasons why Dickinson Gave Thanks and Ate Turkey" in the "Locals" section. Among the seven reasons, the Dickinsonian mentions co-education as possibly being one of them.

Date: December, 1884
"Will the co-eds wear them?"

The December 1884 issue of the Dickinsonian mentions in its "Locals" section a brief humorous statement about the Preparatory School and the co-eds. Apparently, the new Prep class will be wearing blue Turkish fezzes with red tassels, but the big question is, "Will the co-eds wear them?"

Date: December, 1884
"Locals

The "Locals" section of the December 1884 Dickinsonian once again teases Zatae Longsdorff. The paper poses a question to its audience stating that its "none of our business, but why has Miss L. [Longsdorff] not been wearing the class mortar-board?"
