ITHIN THE LAST FIVE YEARS a new American college girl has
emerged from her protected chrysalis of tradition and authority.
Today every educated member of the "younger generation" finds her-
self with the rewards of her freedom in her hands. What to do? She
must challenge the defeat of the old order of things. She must be
informed and clear-sighted so she can intelligently help to establish
a new and better order of things. The interests of the college woman
are inevitably broadening beyond her campus, not only her college
campus but her intellectual campus also, to seek the broad highways
of an intelligent and visionary life. Although she sometimes looks to
college to lead her towards a job as well, the college girl feels that its
main and proper function is to give her a broad and deep cultural
background for her future family life. The college girl has consciously
entered a new phase: that of relating her education to her racial
function yet never losing sight of her own individuality.
ln the spirit of looking soberly and intelligently toward moulding
our own future, this book was conceived and is presented as a mile-
stone in that very vital of careers, that of the college woman. It is
Ehe glass of 1954 which will be looking forward to the Twenty-first
