20 Things You Only Understand If You Are Attending An All Girls School

Attending an all girls school is something you can only truly understand if you have lived through it. As an incoming sophomore I’m so much more prepared this year than last fall as I entered St. Catherine University. Attending an all girls school in Saint Paul, MN has been an incredible experience so far. This is primarily because it is an all girls school and is centered-focused on social justice. Cheers to all of you who are alumni, presently attending, or plan on attending an all girls school. Here are 20 things you can only understand if you are attending an all girls school.
