Milestones for Women at Drexel

In 1900, Pauline Conway became the first woman to complete Drexel's architecture program.

The first student housing for women was built in 1918. Construction began on the Sarah Drexel Van Rensselaer Dormitory for Women in 1931.

In 1919, Drexel awarded its first degrees to women.

In 1938, Edith M. Rood became first woman editor of The Triangle.

In 1943, women first enrolled in the School of Engineering. The Drexel Society of Women Engineers was founded three years later.
