Why a Women’s College?
The unique and challenging environment at a women’s college encourages self-confidence, and supports personal growth. Women who graduate from women’s colleges are more independent, driven and ready to create their own incredible futures.
The women who come to Cottey aren’t looking for an easy path for a degree. They are looking for an experience that enables them to discover their passions, find their voices and achieve their goals—both academically and socially.
- Students at women’s colleges report more meaningful and more frequent interaction with faculty.
- Single-gender classrooms result in more active student participation, higher order thinking and more academic challenge.
Cottey students benefit from an institutional partnership with the P.E.O. Sisterhood—a philanthropic organization whose goal is the support and advancement of women’s education.
