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.

Converse couples the benefits of a women’s college—the room to think and grow, an environment where opinions are valued and sought after—with strong academic programs in the arts and sciences, an uncommonly low undergraduate student–teacher ratio of 10:1 and plenty of opportunity for student-faculty collaboration and research. It’s why U.S.News & World Report and Forbes rank Converse among the best colleges in the nation.

At Converse, we dare students to dream big, to get involved and to make things happen. Come visit us to see for yourself.
