More women are studying at Missouri S&T than ever before, but the percentage of women enrolled remains at around 23 percent as total enrollment continues to grow. That low percentage may lead some women to question whether S&T is the right choice for them.
If you’re one of those women who are wondering, Elizabeth Mulina has some advice for you.
Mulina, a business and information systems and technology major from O’Fallon, Missouri, will tell you that Missouri S&T is a place where women can succeed. That’s what she recently told readers of the online publication Odyssey.
In her essay — titled What You Should Know If You’re Female and About to Attend Missouri S&T — Mulina outlines her reasons for choosing this university. She cites the “endless opportunities for women to get involved,” including numerous student organizations and student design teams, fraternities and sororities, and intramural sports. The also interviewed several other female students at S&T to get their take. Their responses are as varied as the women themselves.
Every campus has a culture, Mulina concludes, and Missouri S&T’s is “unlike most universities.” From her perspective, the campus allows students to find the academic and social paths that are right for them. “When we say you can truly be yourself on this campus, we mean it,” she writes.
