"I was a Co-ed": A Memoir by Elizabeth A. Low


In her 1951 memoir, Elizabeth A. Low recounts her time at Dickinson College as an early "co-ed." Low's memoir traces her career as a student in the preparatory school through to her latter years as a college student. Her story not only highlights Dickinson campus culture in the late nineteenth-century, but it also discusses what it was like to be an early female student at Dickinson College. Due to the large amount of information included in the piece, the document has been broken up into several posts with several themes including:

  •  Housing Provisions
  •  Extra Curricular
  •  Female Relationships
  •  Harassment by Male Students
