Women Students Probe Fraternal Raison d'Etre

In an article entitled "Analysis Suggests Sororities at Dickinson Serve No Purposes and Produce Barriers," a writer for The Dickinsonian explores whether or not sororities are justifiable at a liberal arts college. The author argues that it is not difficult to make friends on a small campus and that there is a psychological danger to the rejection some face at the hands of sororities. Moreover, the author called for sororities to justify their existence, especially in light of the discrimination they practiced toward black women.

Western Look Comes East

Ditti Weinel wrote of the influence of the Western look on East Coast campuses in The Dickinsonian. This look included jumpers, shifts and separates in rich, warm colors. Weinel ends: "So out of the Golden West come sporty, but feminine, fashions with an air of casual living and a touch of tailored elegance to teach those 'citified' Easterners what it's like to be well dressed."

Laila Nada, Egyptian Co-ed

An article in The Dickinsonian chronicles the Dickinson adventures of Laila Nada, a freshman co-ed from Egypt who had never left her country before coming to Dickinson. A biology major, the international co-ed wanted to continue her education after Dickinson and planned to remain in the United States over the summer. She reported that Dickinson students were more friendly than Egyptians and admitted that she would like to see a women's swimming team at Dickinson.

But Sue, he needs you...

In another Fashion House advertisement in The Dickinsonian, Sue, the heroine of the mini-story, is speaking with her friend. Judy tells her that the man who committed some wrong against her was "sorry, and he's downstairs now." After a moment of hesitation, Sue decides to meet him downstairs and dons a villager corduroy shift before checking her appearance. The moral, explains the advertisement's copy, is that "Fashion House clothes are equal to any emergency in life's little adventures."

Wind It Up

Penny Kingman, who wrote a column for The Dickinsonian entitled "Two Cents Worth," created a humorous piece about "collegiat wind-up" dolls. "Wind up the Co-ed doll and she winds up the Fraternity doll," writes Kingman. She jokes that Co-ed dolls will go too fast if wound up too tight and that Sorority dolls put on pins.

What are the rules again?

In a letter to the editor of The Dickinsonian, JoAnne Harris discusses the social rules for co-eds at Dickinson College. She discusses the benefits accrued by the "Rules Experiment" when the college permitted more drinking and loosened social rules. She explained why she believed the college needed to take a more rigid stance on drinking rules, but she asserted that co-eds would need to exercise personal responsibility in Fraternity houses regardless of the rules or their enforcement.

Fashion in College

JoAnne Harris wrote an article on fashion for the college woman entitled "College Wardrobe Planning Demands Practical Thought"  in The Dickinsonian. Harris begins by citing Cinderella's wardrobe predicament as one shared by all college women. She interviewed Robert Einstein of the Fashion House and Mrs. Houston of the Boutique in order to discover the secret of planning a successful wardrobe in college. The interviewees warned that practical fashion did not mean dull fashion and claimed that what women wore during college would become their style after college.

The Fashion House and Romance

An advertisement in The Dickinsonian for the Fashion House sets up a fictive, romantic tale for a Dickinson co-ed. "She hadn't seen him since June," reads the copy, "just happened to look out the window as his car pulled into the Drayer drive..." The advertisement revolves around what the co-ed wears to meet this man.
