Matriculations

The Student Body

Resolutely co-educational the beginning, the University nonetheless experimented with classroom segregation of men and women in the Junior College in 1902. Based on the assumption that younger men and women students would perform better in isolation from each other, this scheme collapsed within a few years. Both before and after the segregation episode, women were granted admission to degree programs on an equal basis with men, although they sometimes encountered the more subtle and less institutional forms of prejudice found in the larger society.
