Why pink? You see it in our marketing materials, T-shirts, and even our athletic uniforms. Truthfully, you need to see beyond pink. And it’s not just for women (check out the history of pink). It’s what the color represents for Bay Path College. A women’s college for the New America. A place where students get down to business, study what they love, prepare for a career, and change their lives for the better. At Bay Path, we think this applies just as much to men, as it does for women.
We have men at Bay Path.
Men, you are not alone. In every graduate program, on campus and online, there are men. In fact, 10% of our graduate school population is men. We see them walking across campus, eating in the dining commons, and working out in the fitness center. And we do have a men’s locker room.
For most of the men, attending a women’s college did not influence their decision. Like many, they looked at the quality of the program and the faculty. They came to campus, met the professors and admissions staff, and made the decision. And as one student reflected: “There’s great perks. The professor remembers my name quicker!” And, being a man at a women’s college does make for an interesting topic for conversation.
What you didn’t know about men…
At women’s colleges. Throughout the United States, many women’s colleges have been admitting men to graduate programs. Bay Path is not unusual. What IS unusual about Bay Path is that men have been here before. The College is one of a handful in America that was founded as a co-educational institution and went single-sex after World War II. So, at alumni gatherings men are pleasantly surprised to meet some of our alumni who “remember when.”
Today’s men at Bay Path are just carrying on the tradition.
