Maryhill College: Women in Higher Education

Maryhill College: the Southwest's Leading Liberal Arts College for Women.

As institutions of higher education, St. Edward's University and Maryhill College valued the differences between men and women, as well as appreciated the similarities between the values, interests, and needs of these students during the mid-twentieth century. Though the administration tried to put into practice the blending of a co-educational campus, societal expectations of women and the ideologies of "separate spheres” directed the lives of female students and tainted the experiences of women on the Hilltop.
