An advertisement in The Dickinsonian for the Fashion House, a store on Pitt Street in Carlisle, offered clothing for men and women. It advertises men's clothing with "For the button-down men: Plaid madras button-down pullover shirt...." For women's clothing, on the other hand, it reads, "For the gals they look at: knee-length madras kitties...."
The 1890 Microcosm shows an advertisement for Dickinson College and the services it offers. In the category of the Preparartory Department, the advertisement mentions, "The course of study covers three years, and prepares students of both sexes thoroughly for Dickinson College, or for any literary institution in the country." This shows the college's acceptance of co-education by advertising directly for new students of both sexes.
