Students of women’s colleges are more likely to serve in leadership roles in their college communities, earn graduate degrees, and attain top leadership positions in their careers. But the real benefit is who you’ll become when immersed in a collaborative learning environment fueled by women’s scholarship, ingenuity, and friendship.
