This research explores the visual culture surrounding liberal arts women’s colleges. This visuality is dependent on gender, and specifically how femininity is ingrained in the existence of women’s colleges. The outdated foundations and the current implications of these college’s prohibit the optimization of an inclusive academic environment. Through the architecture, layout, apparel, and online presence, women’s colleges capitalize of the femininity of the students, while the students are more apt to prioritize their education then the femininity of their peers.
