Wellesley mit dating service
"When I went to Wellesley," says writer-director Nora Ephron, a 1962 graduate, "it was pretty much assumed that if you were interested in medicine, you should marry a doctor." Marnie Henretig, a social worker who graduated in 1965, says, "The only reason I picked Wellesley was because I thought it was the best location to meet the man I wanted to marry." And the very idea of women dating other women was taboo.As Ephron told the class of 1996 at their commencement, "While I was here, Wellesley actually threw six young women out for lesbianism."But then came the sexual revolution.Students were allowed only one day at home per term and could not receive young male callers under any circumstances. In 1914, the rules were relaxed to allow students to receive their fathers — but no other men — on Sundays.
"It wasn't uncommon to get a lot of students coming to my office hours only to talk about who they slept with recently and what had been going on in their lives, how many drugs they did the night before, or how much homework they had that they hadn't been doing," he says."One of our slogans at Wellesley is ' Independent women, amazing women,' " says sophomore Alyssa Robinson."Part of that independence is liberation from boxes that women might have been placed in.It's established wisdom on campus that the "token guy" who comes to Wellesley every few years will get as much attention as he can handle.David Kent, who spent a year at Wellesley in the late Seventies, wrote about the experience for Esquire: "I became incapable of talking to a girl without thinking how much she craved me and what she'd be like in the sack." He added that he dated three women a night and rarely slept in his own room.
