In the 1903 Microcosm, each of the members of the Junior Class of 1904 is pictured along with a brief paragraph about themselves. Mary Elizabeth Colburn was fortunate to have one Microcosm staff write about Co-education in her paragraph. The writer proclaims that they "don't like co-education-most of us never did, but if ever there was a convincing argument that co-education should be encouraged, our girls are it." After a few sentences on the positives of co-education, the writer then compliments Miss Colburn by saying that along with the other females at Dickinson, she was also "ever ready with a helping hand."
