Yale salutes women in Yale College

On the weekend of September 21, women from the classes of 1971, 1972, and 1973 gathered on campus to celebrate 50 years of coeducation at Yale College. They participated in tours and talks, film events, dedications, and dinners, and shared memories of their undergraduate experiences as part of an ongoing oral history project. The series of events gave Yale alumnae the opportunity to reflect on what coeducation has meant for Yale, both for the 575 women who came to campus in 1969, and for subsequent generations of students. In their honor, the university dedicated a commemorative stone on Old Campus, just inside Phelps Gate. (For a photo of the stone, see Light & Verity.)
