As a proud graduate of Converse College I was shocked to hear that there are plans in the near future to drastically change our beloved school. These proposed changes are to have a co-ed campus AND to change the name of the school to Converse University (see link below for letter from the current President). This will change our college forever. Converse has always been an empowering, safe, and amazing place for women to receive their education. It is not just a college but a sisterhood that is rich with traditions. Allowing men to attend our undergraduate programs would change all of the traditions for future generations. This would also drastically affect current students who chose Converse because they desired to be a part of a single gender college. It is my understanding that Converse is facing tremendous financial issues and this may be one way to help solve that issue. If you have any productive ideas of how Converse can improve financially please include that in a comment when you sign. Let your voice be heard about these proposed changes. Sign the petition below if you disagree with proposed changes of a coed campus and changing the name of the school. This petition will be shared with President Newkirk and the Board of Trustees. Share this with any Connies you know so that we can protect our beloved College.
