Changes in Admissions: "no more women students" ...

August 1923

The enrollments for the academic year following 1923 were expected to be large both for the College and Law school. It was expected that there would be 520 students at the College and that a large number of prospective students would be turned away.

Hence, early in July, an edict was issued stating that " NO more women students would be admitted to the college" (emphasis added). Nonetheless, applications from women aspiring to be admitted continued to arrive.

This however, did not mean that there would be no more women allowed at the school, but that there would be a cap placed on incoming Freshmen, and none who had not been previously accepted would be admitted.
