Make things happen. It’s more than a challenge. It’s an invitation, an awakening, an acknowledgment of our-and your-potential. So many things are possible here at Converse. It’s not surprising, given our rich history of enabling women “to see clearly, decide wisely and act justly”. There is also our energetic commitment to being creative and collaborative in every pursuit, and that means emphasizing experiential learning through internships, student research, leadership development, community service, and study-travel. It means facilitating a more nuanced and broader worldview, and not just through interdisciplinary classes; more than half of our students double major. Making things happen is also about empowerment. Attending a women’s college gives our students well-documented advantages
