Having this artifact be a sister’s personal one is special. Her notes provide extra knowledge about the way schedules were set up because there are several instances where she offers insight into the reasoning behind certain degrees. She clarifies the process of picking a “sequence,” their equivalent of a major, and how it fit into the four-year degrees they offered. Different fields are available to study, with fields like home economics and sociology being available to do a “primary sequence” in. Home economics is talked up especially hard, stating the goal is to make women love housekeeping instead of seeing it as a “deadening drudgery,” emphasizing the idea that women aren’t necessarily meant for other professions like doctors or scientists the way men were.
