The top women's college in the country with the steep history of the birthplace of feminism with icons like Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, And Sylvia Plath as aluma. The college campus is stunning.

Top-notch faculty. Excellent classroom, library, and recreational facilities. Walkable campus, close to town. Diverse student population, drawn from a wide geographical area. Yes, there is a slant to their approach. Substantial financial aid is available for students.
